Relating to others

Relating to others is about interacting effectively with a diverse range of people in a variety of contexts. This competency includes the ability to listen actively, recognise different points of view, negotiate, and share ideas.

Students who relate well to others are open to new learning and able to take different roles in different situations. They are aware of how their words and actions affect others. They know when it is appropriate to compete and when it is appropriate to co-operate. By working effectively together, they can come up with new approaches, ideas, and ways of thinking.

Potions (Suze's Project T1 2020)

We will be exploring Chemistry using a range of experiments and activities, including "kitchen chemistry". We will focus on "making potions".

Chemistry is "the study of matter and the changes it undergoes".

Students will: "Observe, describe, and compare physical and chemical properties of common materials and changes that occur when materials are mixed, heated or cooled."

And: "Find out about the uses of common materials and relate these to their observed properties"

We will (hopefully) have access to the science labs and equipment during our sessions.

This term we will be following an integrated approach to literacy.

Learners in this group have developed a level of independence in their writing - they can write their alphabet and know their letter sounds, they are developing their phonics skills and can sound out some letters they can hear in words, they can write an increasing amount of Fast Words and can craft short sentences, they are developing their understanding and use of punctuation, they can read texts in the Red-Yellow levels and are working on Fast Words cards 1, 2 or 3.

This term we will be following an integrated approach to literacy. In my literacy sessions we will be using alphabet, phonics, hand writing, big books, fast words, experiential activities and targeted reading groups to learn the skills necessary for moving towards independent writing.

Each reading group will also have a specific learning programme.

Please see the Fast Words 1 list below.

2019 Term 4 PLAY based learning.

Play Based Learning is using play in the classroom to create opportunities for learning. Play can be a scary word but also very exciting. It’s about setting up environments to support children’s natural urges and inquiry. It is not a free for all but an opportunity to play, with support from teachers. Having an opportunity to play is to support kids to be intrinsically motivated, for LAs and parents to see the value in the play, and to help children naturally extend their own learning in their play.
