Kylie Barker, Teacher of the Deaf

Dart Class were lucky enough to have a visit from Kylie Barker who works with pupils in our school. When Mr Tzen mentioned that we were learning about Human Senses in Science, Kylie offered to join us for a morning to teach us about loss of hearing, as well as an introduction to some British Sign Language. We worked on a few key words, like 'thank you' and colours, as well as some of the alphabet. Test us and see how well we are remembering our new BSL skills! 


Sensory Walk to the Woods and the Christmas Tree Festival

Linking up our learning about our local environment, our learning about the senses and our excitement for Christmas, Dart Class took a stroll! We first visited the icy cold woods to see what we could see, hear, smell and feel, before heading to the church where we were so impressed by all the beautiful, festive decorations. Thanks again to all of the adults who came and helped us to stay safe and enjoy our first class trip, as well as to the children who were so well behaved and kept going, despite the freezing conditions! 


Interviewing a baby

Dart Class have been learning about life in the 1950s, as well as changes to humans as they grown, and so Mr Tzen asked his nephew Finley to pop in to teach us a few things! First, we learnt about caring for babies and we had the chance to ask Finley's mum Beth loads of questions. Then, Finley showed us some of his favourite toys, helping us to think about which toys have stayed the same since the 1950s and which ones are quite different. 


Vegetable garden update

Dart Class are getting the vegetable patch ready for winter! We have pulled out the old plants, harvested the runner beans, dug up the potatoes and now we just need to dig through some new compost. The children loved finding the potatoes - we've sent some home with the children for their dinners, and some have been kept here with us for our next Outdoor Learning session... What do you think we might use them for?
