Wallaby Class

Welcome to Wallaby Class’ page!

Hello, and welcome to Term 3 in Wallaby class. This term, we are exploring ‘How the World Works’ as our central theme. So far, we have made and explored the strange properties of ‘gloop’ in class (cornflour mixed with water), and were thrilled to find a variety of objects frozen overnight in our playground. We will continue our Forest School pilot programme (week beginning 14th January) and hope to develop our knowledge and understanding of the plants, animals and fungi that inhabit the wooded areas. Here are some photos to show what we have been up to.

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).
