Over the last few weeks, we have been talking about self-regulation and how we can better design our classroom to support our needs. To help us when we are feeling stressed or anxious, we decided to turn a storage cupboard into a calming space. So far we have removed shelving, tables and chairs, filled and painted the room. We are very pleased with the results and now use the room successfully if we begin to struggle.
Our topic this half term is Time and Space. In English we began looking at different genres, especially what makes a science fiction story. In maths we have begun to look at probability and have been able to connect our previous learning on fractions to make quick progress. As part of the SEMH curriculum, we have begun looking at our future: careers, accommodation etc. and have looked at how to keep fit in space as part of health and wellbeing.
