Deer Class

Deer Class

Welcome to Deer Class.

Hi Folks, I am Jean Oxley, the teacher of Deer Class. In our class we are supported by Lynne, Mandy and Jo. Deer class are a sensory group and most of our activities are practical, but we try to make them fun, interesting and exciting.

We always start our day with a good morning song, day, date and weather and Mr Motivator, then we are ready for some learning in a variety of subjects including: Word and Number, Art, Science, PE, Life Skills, Cookery, Outdoor Learning and Music and Movement.

We are sending the remote learning packs home and linking up on Teams regularly and have already had some lovely photos through of our amazing Deer class pupils enjoying their home learning activities but please keep sending them in.

Please keep in regular contact via seesaw also as I am putting some activities on there too as an alternative to the printed home learning or practical activities.

Week commencing 15th March

Deer class have been very busy this week making symmetrical pictures, getting to know the Paint 2D programme for creating on the computer, some pupils have used the new physio swing, and loved it. The swing made them feel so relaxed. We’ve also been looking at position such as under, over, in, on and around. We’ve had lots of developing to music. We had fun on Comic relief Day.

Deer Class have been continuing with our Super Hero work this week and the display is coming on nicely, though not quite finished, pictures to follow. We have also made some things for our super hero mums for Mother’s Day, we’ve had an eventful week as we’re all back together but everyone has caught up with friends on the playground. I’d like to say well done to Kendal for becoming our Student Representative for the student Council and attending the first meeting this week. Here are a few pictures from this week’s activities, Have a lovely Mother’s Day. Kind regards, Jean

It has been lovely to see our Deer Class pupils enjoying the snow this week, life cannot be all work ….

Our children’s wellbeing is very important and being happy, enjoying what you are doing is key … so we try to make learning fun and learning can be had in a wide range of activities …

We’ve started to have a ‘Deer of the week’ and ‘Wow’ of the week and I thought I would put them on here too for you as this week it is one of our pupils who are working from home so;

Well Done to Sam for getting the ‘Deer of the Week’ for his efforts in his home learning and to Adriana for the ‘Wow of the week ‘ for her hard work in phonics, signing and verbalizing.

Have a lovely Half term break, Have fun stay safe, Jean
