Emma’s Building Autumn Term 2023


We hope you have all had a great summer. We are looking forward to seeing the children again and to supporting them with their learning.

The children will have 1:1 sessions in a morning in order to enhance their learning in Maths and English. We will incorporate targets from their Individual Support Plans into the children’s learning. Sensory activities will be followed for some children.

Every Tuesday we will be completing life skills activities. We will be cooking, with an exciting range of dishes using different skills, tastes and textures linked to key calendar dates for example using apples from our school orchard, bread making linked to harvest time, poppy biscuit making linked to remembrance day.

Weekly PE is an opportunity to join our class peers for a variety of activities. Outdoor kit will be needed-joggers and sweatshirt as some work will be completed outside.

Some of the children will be supported to access their afternoon learning with their class peers. In year one and two this will be: History- Why are explorers significant? Geography- Maps old and new How did explorers navigate? Science- Materials, identifying materials and their properties.

In years 3 and 4 afternoon learning will be: History Anglo Saxons and Vikings – Why did they invade England, Geography- Scandinavian coast line features, Science- Solids, Liquids and Gases-changes in state
