Welcome to Class 2
Welcome to the new term here at Fountaindale. We are excited to share all the wonderful learning we are doing in Class 2. We have a lovely team here in the room and they are already getting to know all the children and how brilliant they all are. Their names are Michelle, Debs, Cheryl, Sarah, Hazel and Kim.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Phillip (Class 2 Teacher)
We have had a wonderful first full week learning all about our new friends in Class Two. For some of us, this is the first time being in school. The new children have made a super start to the school year. Everyone has settled back into school really well. We have had lots of social communication time, learning through play and experiencing our class story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. What do you think of the butterfly we have been decorating? Exploring our outdoor area and the woods that surround our school has been very important to us, as it has given sense of space and freedom. We have also been reading ‘The Colour Monster’ and exploring happy and sad feelings. We hope you enjoy a few pictures of our first week!
We have had lots of wonderful learning opportunities in the last couple of weeks. Through our topic ‘Changes’, we have been smelling, feeling and tasting the fruits of our story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. We have also been painting our very own Colour Monsters bright colours and shining UV lights on them. It has been lovely to see the children interacting with each other and making friends.
We have been enjoying our working together sessions with the OTs and Physios. It’s been great to see all the children getting a good stretch and working on their physical targets, all whilst having lots of fun!
Getting outside in the forest around our school has been very important to us. It has given us a sense of space and we have enjoyed seeing the children experience nature; listening to the wind through the trees and the crunch of the leaves.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our PE sessions in the hall. Not only is it another area of the school for the children to experiences, but it has given us the space to get out the parachute and the skittles and have lots of laughs.
Here are some pictures below of our experiences:
