Term 3

We look forward to welcoming Diamond Class back to school in 2023! 

Curriculum overview

Our topic is 'In The Rainforest'.

We will have a science and geography focus exploring where rainforests are, what they are, which animals live in them and why they need protecting. We will also focus on food chains and rivers within this topic. 

There will be a focus on D&T this term where we will be honing out sewing skills to make bunting. 

Our books for this term are 'The Selfish Crocodile' by Faustin Charles & Michael Terry and 'The Great Kapok Tree' by Lynne Cherry. 

In PHSE, we will be looking at the Jigsaw topic 'Dreams & Goals'. We will also enjoy celebrating the New Year and Chinese New Year as a class. 

Once a week in Diamond class we practice life skills using the Talentino programme with Janet on a Wednesday. She will help us develop our life skills, such as cleaning, making beds, gardening, office jobs etc 

Each Thursday, we will split into two groups. One group will cook with Liz and the other will do some speaking and listening skills with Angela. Some students will be using the Talkabout scheme of work to develop their social communication skills.  


Key Dates and other information

PE remains on a Wednesday afternoon. Students can wear their PE Kits into school for the whole day. Janet is our teacher for the day. 

Cooking remains on a Thursday morning. We will communicate via the diary what we will be making and whether we are eating our cooking in school or at home. 

Feel Good Friday continues. The students have a choice of a youth group & art room, sensory relaxation time or music & games in the hall. 

Students are back to school on Wednesday 4th January. We can't wait to see them all and hear about their Christmas adventures. 

We hope to go to the garden centre again this term to have a drink and buy some plants for our memorial garden.
