September 2018

Welcome to Panda Class we hope you all had a super summer holiday. This year Panda class has eight pupils, one of whom is new to Cliffdale Primary Academy. The class teacher is Lizzie and the teaching assistants are Emma, Beth and Marie. All the pupils have been keen to investigate their new classroom and have quickly settled back into school routines. The autumn term topic this year is called ‘Colour Magic’ and we are looking forward getting very creative. Every afternoon will be filled with our three areas of learning which are; Understanding Our World, Creative Development and Skills for Life.

So far in our first week pupils have been learning the routines as well as using visual schedules to transition around the school. They have also had the opportunity to get to know each other and the staff in Panda class. We have been very busy already…

Leo, Brandon and Alex have been learning to match numbers 1-10 by parking the cars in the right space.

Alexander has loved looking through the new range of books and has been learning to tidy all the toys away in their correct places.

Osman and Lily-Beth have been practicing their play skills and learning how to take turns with a member of staff.

Josef has been visiting the cookery room to help cut up all the fruit for snack time, what a great job!

Jack has settled into Cliffdale brilliantly and has enjoyed playing with the doll’s house and using the number tiles to order numbers to 20.

Keep up the good work Panda’s!
