News From Pluto Class

Over the past few weeks the children who will be moving to Pluto Class in September have been spending time transitioning into the group. Three children currently in Rainbow Class and one from Stars Class have been joining us on a Friday afternoon and, from this week, also on a Tuesday morning.
We have been doing different lessons during these times so that the children get a good idea of what their timetable might be like in September. Some favourite activities have been a sensory story during English, Maths which involved playing some number games on the playground involving throwing bean bags, Cooking – we have made sandwiches and pizzas and Music – using the ‘SoundBeam’ in class to create our own pieces of music using our bodies and different switches.
