Everyone in Yellow Ted would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Our new topic in the Spring term 2018 will be The United Kingdom.
Yellow Ted had a surprise when they came into the room today, someone had set up camp in our room. On further inspection the children found an elf, with a letter from Father Christmas telling us that the elf’s name was Norman and that he was going to stay with us for a while. Norman is a bit cheeky and often does naughty things if the children don’t keep an eye on him!
This week we have had a new member to Yellow Ted and that is our furry friend the worry monster! He has come to join us to help the children with any worries they may be having, he likes to play with the children and listens to their worries. He is very friendly and cuddly so if you have any worries please come and visit him.
Yellow Ted joined the whole school in remembering those who lost their lives in the war. We made special poppy wreaths and learnt about what the children would have experienced. We made a time line to see how long ago the war was in comparison to how old we were and other historic events. We read the poem On Flanders Fields and made our own poppy fields.
We have been learning about the festival of lights Divali. The children dressed up in special clothes, made bracelets and rangoli patterns. The children made special Divali decorations and placed lights around the room ready for the special party we had. They had an opportunity to try many different foods and listen to some Divali music.
Welcome to a new school year in Yellow Ted. We hope everyone has had a lovely summer holiday is ready to work hard this year.
This half term Yellow Ted have been learning about Autumn. We went to visit the park to see what happens to the trees in Autumn, they collected leaves and sorted them by colour and size. The children also enjoyed using an information sheet to see if they could identify which trees the leaves came off.
We used the leaves to produce leaf prints and to make tree pictures.
The children have also been learning about good listening and what it looks like
1. You have to sit quietly.
2. You have to use your ears to listen and your brain to learn.
3. You have to sit still.
4. You have to look at the person who is talking.
5. You have to use your heart to care about what is being said.
Yellow Ted is our nurture provision. It is led by our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator, Mrs Robinson and delivered by Miss George and Mrs Thornton.
Up to 6 children access Yellow Ted Tuesday to Friday afternoons.
Where possible the children follow the Topic theme from their year group in the afternoon but with a nurture approach.
Children with social and emotional needs are supported in their learning and have specific targets to support them in being fully integrated into their own classrooms throughout the day.
Please visit this very helpful website that is designed to help parents understand websites that their children use and what the risks are, as well as reviewing them and offering advice on parental controls.
