Welcome to Class 7
All About us
In Class 7, we follow a broad and balanced curriculum supporting our children to become successful learners, to develop their independence and develop the qualities of a responsible citizen. We recognise that successful learners challenge themselves, and we strive to develop positive relationships between children, their peers and adults. This in turn will prepare them to be successful in the future whatever their endeavours.
Class 7 have PE on a Wednesday afternoon and throughout the Autumn term attend swimming lessons on a Friday morning. Monday mornings are spent developing our skills for independent living through weekly cooking time. We look to develop skills that will help us to prepare a variety of predominantly savoury dishes and healthy dishes in a safe and hygienic way. We also feed our creativity on a Monday morning through our music lessons, which for 2/3 of the year we have the privilege of having a specialist music teacher in our class with us.
As a school we also have 2 mini buses, which we try to use as much as possible during the school year to develop our capital culture and understanding or he world we live in.
In Class 7 we teach our English Curriculum focused around a class book. This often has some links to some of our foundation subjects or previously accessed learning, allowing for some cross-curricular learning and application of knowledge. We have enjoyed reading longer texts, such as Charlotte’s web last term, but also explore picture books and non-fiction texts. During this term we will be focussing on the picture book Voices in the Park, and reading some non-fiction books about Earth and Space. Children read to an adult, one to one, everyday. They have an individually allocated reading book and have the opportunity to discuss with an adult what they are reading. Spellings are practiced daily and tested regularly.
As a school we follow the White Rose long term plan, encouraging children to develop their learning using the concrete – pictoral – abstract approach (CPA). On a morning, children complete ‘Morning Maths’ work, allowing the children to consolidate learning and regularly revisit previously taught aspects of the curriculum. We recognise the importance of times tables and the impact these can have in our maths progress and so practise them daily using a variety of methods such as Times Table Rock Stars and 12x12 grids.
