Class 4 - Seahorse

Term 1 Report

In Seahorse class this term we have been settling in and getting to know our new routines, classroom and teacher! We said goodbye to Jo at the end of the term and have welcomed our new teacher, Kate, who is really enjoying being a Seahorse at Chalet School!

We began by thinking about things we like and don’t like, and learning to tolerate and understand some of the differences between ourselves and others. We explored our circle of care, and have been thinking about or families and people who help us.

In literacy we have been writing about autumn pictures and practicing our phonics to help us with spelling. We have been practicing saying our sentences out loud to an adult before we write them down and learning to form our letters in the right way.

In maths we have been developing our understanding of numbers and the number system, practicing the right way to form our digits and counting forwards and backwards to 20. We have also learnt to add using resources like number lines and have been telling an adult which number is larger or smaller.

In PSHE we have written our class rules together and have been learning independence skills such as dressing and undressing for PE and sharing snack together in the morning. We have especially enjoyed our special snack on a Friday where we have tasted and smelt lots of different foods and learnt to share a social occasion together.

As part of our topic work we have explored the season of autumn, taking part in our harvest festival and visiting the school garden to gather autumn leaves. We have looked at how the weather is changing and have enjoyed singing some new songs like ‘Tony Chestnut’ and ‘This Little Light of Mine’!

This term, Seahorse class have had the opportunity to take part in swimming and Zumba and have talked about how these activities can help us to stay healthy. We have also enjoyed drumming with Luke and have shown some brilliant musical skills and enthusiasm. We are really looking forward to the rest of the year and have had a fantastic term 1.

Well done Seahorses!
