Sunshine Class



We have had a very busy and fun first term in Sunshine class for our newest learners at College Park School! As well as settling in and getting to know new friends, Sunshine class has been making great progress, adapting to the daily routine and having a go a wide range of learning activities around our topic of animals. 

Our sensory story at the beginning of this term, ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ was a wonderful opportunity for the learners to experience thick oozy mud, deep cold rivers and not-so scary bears! We did lots of requests, using visuals and objects of reference to create elements from the story as well as learning new vocabulary along the way. This half-term we have explored ‘The Gruffalo’ and all the other forest animals in the magical story through storytelling, roleplay and craft activities. Learners have also developed their reading skills through turning the pages of the book, answering ‘who’, ‘what’ and ‘where’ questions and anticipating what comes next in the story. 

In maths, learners have been developing early number skills through fun activities such as playdough, making fruit kebabs while learning maths vocabulary such as one and lots, as well as securing our knowledge of counting to 10. 

Sunshine class has been fortunate enough to have taken part in an African drumming workshop at College Park school, which involved our first school trip together on the bus; a great day was had by all! We have also enjoyed a trip to the Royal Albert Hall for a sensory experience, as well as a classical music workshop and a performance by the Aurora Orchestra. Sunshine class has also had two dance workshops from Flamingo Chicks dance company where we explored different ways to move our bodies and have fun through movement and music!
