Victory Class

We are proud to be members of Team Victory. The adults who work in our class are Miss Toomey (Teacher) and Ms Palmer and Miss Tynan (Teaching Assistants)  

Our classroom is in Pool House where we are lucky enough to have an entire Nurture Suite! In the suite we have a classroom - with home corner, role play area and learning zones -, our own kitchen, art area, dining room and quiet space. We also have our own garden where we’ve dug our own vegetable patch and planted flower beds. Finally, our outdoor learning zone (complete with mud kitchen, challenge and construction areas) provides us with the opportunity to immerse ourselves in play, collaborate with friends on challenges and work with adults to develop our social skills. Sometimes, we even get to watch wild rabbits playing around our pond from our classroom. Through play and exploration we are able to develop our understanding of the world around us and develop our critical thinking skills.

Each half term we are introduced to a new learning experience, or topic, so our learning is themed for a period of time. This helps us to become immersed in our learning and settles any worries we may have about what we might have to learn. Some of our Learning Experiences include "Dungeons and Dragons", "Predators and Prey" and "Out of Africa". We use a range of strategies to support our learning including visual aids (such as timetables and symbol-assisted signs) and kinaesthetic activities.

Victory class is a nurture class which helps us develop socially and emotionally through our hands on learning and play- based activities. As a team, we learn to work well together; solving problems, developing our knowledge across the curriculum, sharing resources and becoming more resilient. Hoping to be in the challenge zone, we learn to persevere with tasks and know that it’s great to make a mistake! In Victory, we include everybody in our happy, safe classroom! We do our best learning when we feel safe to try new things with a smile on our faces.

 

We are learning: Autumn Term 

In September, Victory class will be introduced to their first learning experience of the year. The topic is called 'London's Burning' and will be all about the events of the Great Fire of London. We will learn how it started and why it spread so quickly. We will investigate which materials burn the quickest, and consider whether the people of 1666 could have prevented the fire from starting, spreading so far and destroying so many buildings. We will also learn about how people lived during the reign of Charles II, what they ate and how they baked bread. We will then use some recipes from 1666 to have a go at baking our own bread.

We will be using the diary of Samuel Pepys to deepen our knowledge of the fire and its impact on people. By looking at the structural and language features of the diary, we will use this as a guide to write or draw our own. 

In Jigsaw (PSHE), we will be looking at the topic 'Being in my World' and will be discussing our rights and responsibilities within the classroom.
