Welcome to Goldcrests Class!

Our topics this term are “Australia” and “Properties and changes in materials”.

We will be discussing and investigating key questions and showing our findings in different ways such as posters, power points and speech bubbles. In Science we will be investigating the different properties of everyday materials and how these can be changed. We will find out about the states of matter- solid, liquid and gas and how heating and cooling can change this state.

In Geography, we will be finding out about the wildlife and climate in Australia and interesting facts about the country.

We will continue identifying different emotions and learning and exploring good ways to regulate strong emotions. We will be exploring a range of sensory experiences in Sensory Circuits and Hand gym every morning.

In literacy we will be taking part in daily speaking and listening, opportunities and writing/typing for a variety of different purposes.

In maths we are learning to identify, count and add amounts of money and calculate change. We are also practising our times tables using Times Tables Rock Stars which is a fun, educational, interactive web site.

We like our successes being celebrated and shared on See-saw and earning our Wow certificates.

Austin our friendly Therapy Dog friend will still be visiting every other Wednesday morning. He likes hearing us read to him and joins in with our sofa time sessions.
