Tutor Group 2 Autumn 2020

September 2020


Dear parents and carers,


Welcome back to the new school year.



This term’s topic is called ‘This is me.’ This topic will form part of the recovery curriculum which aims to support our students in settling back into school life, after what, for many of our students, was a long time out of class. The curriculum will focus on ensuring our students are feeling happy and secure to be back at school. We will also be working on our friendship skills. Learning to be a good friend, as well as developing the new friendships we have in our new class groups.



In English this term we will be learning about phonics. We will be looking at identifying letter sounds, and applying these to writing and reading common CVC words. We will also begin to look at reading and writing high frequency words, for some of our students this will be focussed on writing our names.


Students will also be practising writing sentences using symbols and podd books to support them.



Within maths this term we will be looking at number and measures. The students will be learning about time and looking at their daily routines as well as the days of the week and months of the years.


The students will also be learning about measuring weight, and will be attempting to apply these to real life situations within cooking.



Within PSHE we will be focusing on the students wellbeing. We will be talking about our feelings, and learning ways to express ourselves, as well as regulate and talk about how we feel.

PSHE is fully embedded within the class day to day activities and underpins all lessons.



Our Science this term will be taught through our IPC topic. We will be learning about ourselves and our bodies. We will be talking about the different body parts as well as learning about how our bodies change as we grow.



If you have any questions regarding this information, please do not hesitate to ask.


Yours sincerely,


Eleni Christou.
