Red Class

In Red Class, the current class teacher is Miss Dilks and the support staff are Miss Dewhurst and Miss Norris. We strive to build healthy relationships between peers and staff. We do this through lots of practical learning and teamwork throughout all areas of the curriculum. We visit Forest School once a week to do team building activities such as building dens, nature trails, feed the ducks and even toast marshmallows on the bonfire. We enjoy getting out in the fresh air and experiencing new things, such as making snow angels, digging holes in the mud to plant vegetables, drawing round our shadows and collecting dried leaves for art work. Red class also enjoy healthy competition within our two PE lessons a week. In Red Class, we also like to promote independence ready for moving up to Secondary. We do this through individual target setting within lessons and marking our work together to spot improvements ourselves e.g. spelling mistakes in our Literacy. We have many circle time discussions around future job roles and careers and even practice other skills such as swimming and horse riding. On a Friday, Red Class also enjoy a golden time session in the afternoon where they can pick what activities they would like to do for choice time. These activities may include rock climbing located in our PE department, soft play, climbing frame, riding the bikes outside, playing on the Xbox or Wii or even an extra session of PE, such as dodgeball!
