Wallaby Class

Welcome to Wallaby Class’ page!

Hello, and welcome to Term 2 in Wallaby class. This term, we are having ‘How we Express Ourselves’ as our central theme. We have looked at works of art produced by professional artists exhibited at Tate Modern,  looked at street art, and listened and danced to different music genres. Wallaby Class have made an amazing start to planting new trees in our woodland area. So far, we have each planted a rowan tree sapling. Exploring the copse and other wooded areas has become a regular activity, and we are now looking forward to beginning Forest School sessions with smaller groups.

 

We have begun our programme of Phonics, beginning with listening skills and hearing the variety of different sounds in words and all around us. Soon, we will begin to teach the sounds (phonemes) that the letters of the alphabet make. We follow the government designed ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme, and use the ‘Jolly Phonics’ songs and visuals (see the links below).
