Welcome to Poppy Class!

This term we'll be learning about what happens in nature during summer. 
We will be sharing the stories of 'jack and the Beanstalk', 'Farmer Duck' and 'The Little Red Hen' in association with a wide-range of associated learning opportunities.

We will be focussing our combined learning on the themes of nature, summertime and “How Does it Grow?”  This will include an emphasis on plants in science and nature in our sensory exploration.

Our literacy learning will continue with reading, writing, spelling and communication with a phonics emphasis on the blending and use of words linked to Speed Sounds Sets 1, 2 and 3.  

Our maths learning will focus on number understanding and use, number sentences and a range of shapes and their properties – the latter to include 3D shapes as well as 2D shapes with 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 sides!

Please remember that we always require a change of clothes in your child’s bag and will continue to need a change of clothes for messy play every Thursday! 

When it is warm enough we will once again be filling our paddling pools but will inform you of this closer to the time.

Our woods exploration, soft play, song choices and outdoor learning will continue as will Music Therapy and 'Woodland Wonders'.

I am also researching pool possibilities for our potential use and an end-of-term parent get together - again I will keep you updated on this.

As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via email.
Take good care and, as always, many thanks for your continued support.
An ARB is an Area or Additional Resource Base for children with a range of individual needs as detailed in their Education, Health and Care Plans.  No day is ever the same in Poppy Class, we all learn something new with and from one another.  We have a superb team of experienced staff and equally amazing pupils and together we enjoy a wide range of learning experiences including:
We are extremely thankful for the support of our pupils' parents/carers/guardians and like to keep regular daily contact with them during the school term.  We also appreciate the participation of parents/carers on our exciting school trips and have a termly themed 'Open Class' to celebrate the success of our pupils. 
In addition, we place a great emphasis on the fundamental importance of our partnerships with a wide range of external services that further support our pupils including Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy.
A selection of our highlights during each school week include circle time song choices, relaxing in the sensory room, exploring the garden, movement to music, soft play, sensory exploration, Pets as Therapy with Tony and Raven, Music Therapy with 'Music-Mike', 'Woodland Wonders' with Matty and a range of other learning activities designed to meet and challenge the individual needs of our pupils.
The progress and achievements of our pupils are monitored throughout the school year using clear and concise assessments that are both accessible and developmentally appropriate. 
Assessment indicators include:
  • Early Years Developmental Journal
  • B-Squared 'Engagement Steps' and 'Progression Steps' (previously 'P-Levels')
  • Pre-Key Stage Standards
  • Engagement Model Observations
  • Primary Impact Trackers
These judgements are further evidenced through 'Evisense' photo and video learning journeys that can be accessed instantly online by parents/carers/guardians.
