This year the class has Literacy, Numeracy, Art, Swimming, Music, Physical Education, Science and Society and Environment as well as Technology and Enterprise. Our theme in term 1 is Mini Beasts where we will cover creatures like spiders, caterpillars, bees, flies’ beetles and other creepy crawlies. Children will learn more about these mini beasts and this will be explored in Science, Literacy through stories, Art and Society and Environment.

Communication is still one of our main focuses and the class will continue using the Group PODD to give group instructions and announce transitions as well as individual PODD Books and communication devices. The school is also focusing on 6 kind of best values and the Rainbow Way which encourages students to develop an ‘I can do attitude’. This will also be taught and encouraged with all students. Behaviour management will also be considered for those students who present with some behaviour challenges.

Room 9 has had a good start to the year and we look forward to a great year!
