We are proud to be members of Team Victory.
The adults who work in our class are Mr Beckley (Teacher ), Mrs Robinson and Mrs Lock (Teaching Assistants)
Our classroom is in Pool House where we are lucky enough to have an entire Nurture Suite! In the suite we have a classroom - with home corner, role play area and learning zones -, our own kitchen, art area, dining room and quiet space. We also have our own garden where we’ve dug our own vegetable patch and planted flower beds. Finally our outdoor learning zone (complete with mud kitchen, challenge and construction areas) provides us with the opportunity to immerse ourselves in play, collaborate with friends on challenges and work with adults to develop our social skills. Through play and exploration we are able to develop our understanding of the world around us and develop our critical thinking skills.
As members of Team Victory, we care for our classroom environment, feel safe in it and are reassured by predictable routines and the visual timetable of our day.
Each half term we are introduced to a new learning experience, or topic, so our learning is themed for a period of time. This helps us to become immersed in our learning and settles any worries we may have about what we might have to learn.
Victory class is a nurture class which helps us develop socially and emotionally through our hands on learning and play- based activities. As a team, we learn to work well together; solving problems, developing our knowledge across the curriculum, sharing resources and becoming more resilient. Hoping to be in the challenge zone, we learn to persevere with tasks and know that it’s great to make a mistake!
We are learning
We are really looking forward to the term we have ahead of us. Our Learning Experience, called "Monsterosity", will cover a wide range of topics. We will be learning about our bodies and how amazing the different parts of it are. For example, we will be looking at how our different senses work and considering what it would be like if we didn't have all of our senses. In addition to learning about our body, we will be looking at how we can look after ourselves. This will include learning about healthy eating, the value of exercise and how to stop germs spreading. We will try to fit in as much exercise as possible as part of this topic.
In English, we will be reading a book called "The Beasties" and using this to help us with our own story writing. We will further develop our understanding of what is involved in a story and how to plan one.
In Jigsaw (Social Skills), we will be looking at the topic of 'Healthy Me'. This links very nicely to our main topic, as we will continue to look at how we can look after ourselves. For example, we will consider why medicine is important whilst also thinking about how to stay safe around medicines.
