Welcome to Pandas



Teachers - Sarah (Monday Tuesday,Wednesday and Thursday)

and Saima T (Friday) 

SNTA’s -Mariah, Louise and Abdus 


In Pandas we have daily phonics sessions where we focus on work around environmental sounds and rhythm. We use the resonance board to tap and feel the rhythms of songs, poems and call and response chants. 

We use a lot of sounds during our intensive interaction sessions which are undertaken at every opportunity.


Reading in Pandas will be shown in many different ways.

We have a cosy reading area, where we can sit on bean bags and sit with adults or independently to look at books. We have been practicing holding the books the right way round, turning the pages, looking at the pictures and listen to the stories that the adult reads.

We have access to a light and sound room where we focus on fixing and tracking the movement of the light up object.

Our class teacher likes to make a sensory story for each topic. We use the resonance board to help tell these stories and we get to explore lots of different sensory items in the story. 

There are also books for us to look at in each area of provision and programs on the computer where we can listen to interactive stories.   



Maths happens every where in our classroom. We have a designated maths area within the classroom that has a variety of activities for us to explore.

We have lots of access to numbers, songs and counting activities as part of continuous provision and we also have work boxes which have a maths focus. 

We use maths as part of our daily routine and have opportunities to count how many children at register time and how many pieces of fruit at snack time.

We are learning to follow routines and anticipate what is going to happen next.



Pandas go to Hydrotherapy on a Friday.  Please remember to send swimming kits into school and swimming nappies if you are providing your own.  Thank you




Outdoor Provision 

In Pandas we love playing and learning in our outdoor classrooms when the weather is nice so please ensure your child has appropriate, labelled clothing, a coat, scarf, hat, gloves and wellies if appropriate.


Homework bags will be sent home on a rotation system

Pandas Topic web for summer term 1


We've had a fantastic half term basing our learning around the story 'We're going on a bear hunt'  We've explored the sensory aspects of the story and also had fun using torches-learning about light and dark in our very own bear cave!!

With the weather getting warmer we have enjoyed spending some more time outside in the sunshine. 

At the end of the half term we went on a trip to Sacekraft in Shipley. We loved using all the fantastic sensory resources
