Week beginning - 30.3.20
Hi, parents and carers. I hope you are all well.
This week, please can you sing some nursery rhymes with your children?
We do this every day after lunch so the children will be very familiar with this. The website is https://www.bbc.co.uk and then go to Nursery Rhymes and songs - A to Z BBC Teach. This should get you there.
Stay safe and stay inside.
Love from Sarah and the staff in Jaguar class.
Here is another little activity for you to complete.
Please draw or paint a picture of a rainbow if you can. When you have finished it, take a picture of it and email it to this address- firstname.lastname@example.org.
They are to spread messages of kindness during these difficult times and we will work alongside the children of Catcote to produce these postcards.
Take care and stay inside,
Week beginning : 23.3.20.
Good afternoon Jaguars.
I hope that you are all safe and well.
I will be using this page to keep in contact with you over the next few weeks and I will be leaving you little tasks to complete.
This week, I would like you to get some exercise every day. If the weather is fine, you could go out for a walk, or go outside to play. If the weather is wet, or too cold for you to go outside, you could find "Cosmic Kids" on the internet. This is a yoga programme that we use in P.E. in school so the children are really familiar with it.
Next, I would like the children to practice writing their full name every day. We complete this in class every morning ,when the children arrive into school, so they are used to this being part of their routine.
Stay safe and look after each other.
Sarah and the staff in Jaguar class.
Hello we are Jaguar class and Sarah is our teacher.
Our higher level teaching assistant (HLTA) is Annette.
We have 3 other teaching assistants (TA's) Lynn, Ruth and Allison.
Niamh is also our lovely apprentice.
We have 8 children with ASD and we follow a multi sensory curriculum which follows the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also includes creative and enriched learning opportunities which develop the most important life skills of our children to enable them to
learn and grow.
Each week we have different activities as well Swimming, Hydrotherapy Pool, Rebound Therapy
and Soft Play as well as visits to different places in the local environment such as the town,
local shops and the library
Our first trip out was to the beach on the Headland where we looked at rocks as part of our Science topic.
Happy New Year!
Our new topic is 'Old and New' this term. We will be looking at old and new toys to begin with. Please bring in any old toys of yours, if you have any, so that we can share them with the children.
We will continue to have swimming on a Tuesday, jacuzzi on a Thursday and P.E. on a Friday.
Please see our topic web below:-
On Thursday morning, Jaguars walked to the nearby swings. We played on the swings and talked about them being new toys. We had lots of fun but it was very windy and cold!
In Science this half-term we have been learning and playing with water! We have been learning which containers make bubbles. We have got a bit wet but we have had lots of fun!
Jaguars have been to the museum in Hartlepool. We played with lots of old toys as part of of our "Old and New" topic. We had a lot of fun with the toys. Afterwards, we had a look around the rest of the museum. We really enjoyed playing in the boat.
