Silver Class Learning

Silver Class

Sliver Class are continuing to make superb progress across all parts of the curriculum during their first year of learning at Turney School. The children are working really hard on their phonic skills. This is an incredibly important building block that then helps the children with their word formation during later years. Silver Class have been focussing on the phonics of S, T, C, and E. Our work around these letters looks at the sounds that each letter makes when spoken, as well as letter formation. We have also been singing the brilliant ABC song to help us with our work!

Orange Class Activities

Green Class

With Easter fast approaching, Orange Class are starting to think about spring. This has inspired us with our artwork, with many different paintings of plants being produced. This also fits in with the current Orange Class science theme of how things grow. Our PE sessions in Orange Class have included work on the school trampoline. All of the children are having great fun using this equipment. This has also led to our PSHE topic looking at different body parts and spacial awareness.

Our welcome song includes mentioning all the names of the Class 1M pupils and we all get to join in with the singing.

Class 2S Music

We have introduced Class 2S to playing their own keyboards during our music workshops. We asked the pupils to explore the keyboard and to see what type of sounds are possible to achieve.

Class 3J PE Video

We are exploring different gymnastic skills as part of our PE sessions in Class 3J. This theme is related to our earlier focus upon different jumping techniques using the school trampoline. The pupils are all now familiar with tuck jumps, star jumps and half-turn jumps after our trampoline sessions. The next stage for this progression was to try these out using different types of Turney School PE equipment.

Class 10 Re-cycling

Class 10

We have been focussing heavily on recycling as part of our science work in Class 10. We asked the pupils to think about ways we can help to make Turney School more efficient by encouraging an even better use of recycling techniques. All class members took part in an observation walk around the school. We then returned to the classroom to produce a report as to how we can further improve Turney School when it comes to recycling. Ideas included buying in recycled paper, and using refillable ink cartridges in the school office.
