Eclipse Class

Welcome to our class. The adults who support our learning are Mrs Woolley (Teacher), Ms Palmer, Miss Shearman and Mr Warman (Teaching Assistants).

We are very lucky to have a beautiful building set in its own garden. Our learning environment is key and access to the quiet outdoor area for collaborative play or calming activities helps us feel secure. In Eclipse, we continue the Nurture Principles that are embedded in the boy's routine in Victory Class. We develop our social skills through play-based learning, team building activities and social activities such as elevenses.

In Eclipse, we know that it's great to make mistakes! We do our best learning when we feel safe to try new things and explore new concepts. We access the curriculum through a range of Learning Experiences which help us get excited about our learning.

We like to explore concepts through a range of activities and often have access to practical learning. To consolidate our learning, we will go on class trips linked to our Learning Experiences. These help us to immerse ourselves in the topic as well as develop our social skills in a variety of settings.  

We are Learning - Summer Term 2

This term we are learning about all things wet! We will be following the journey of a water drop as it moves through the water cycle, identifying its path through streams and rivers into the sea.

In Science, we will start our topic learning about the stages of the water cycle. We will use our knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to build our vocabulary and knowledge. Through practical scientific enquiry, we will be visualising the changing states of water and identify these in daily life. We will then move on to learning about the animals that live along our journey down the river; their habitats, their eating habits and their skeletal system.

Our Geography lessons will focus on rivers; identifying rivers across the world and examining the features of each type of river. Through trips, we will carry out field work to support our learning and help us to understand the content of our topic in context.

We will also be following the journey of a water droplet in our English lessons! We are going to be writing an adventure story based around the water cycle; creating a character, developing descriptive language and using devices to build our story.

Our PSHE lessons this term will be based around our experiences as we grow. We will be talking about the stages of a human life, discussing changes in our bodies as we grow and identifying how we feel about these concepts.
