J4 are enjoying their current topic of Animals at the Farm, they have created a farm display with a range of animals. During Literacy Week J4 created a digital story, they showcased “The Little Red Hen” to J6.

J4 have also enjoyed looking at Fair Trade, for a birthday celebration they enjoyed Fair Trade Chocolate. On Pancake Tuesday, Fair Trade chocolate spread was an option for topping choices.

J4 have also enjoyed participating in a Drumming Circle, lots of noisy fun!

J4 is a vibrant class of Primary 2 pupils within the Foundation Stage. We focus upon building positive relationships with both staff and our peers to aid learning through play. Through various topics we have access to the NI curriculum which is modified to meet our individual needs.

We have enjoyed exploring our new classroom, exciting timetable, and a range of learning environments such as Sensory Lounge, Soft Play, Sensory Garden, Lights and Educational Outings.

To support our development, we use a range of strategies and programmes such as Visual Strategies, PECS and Makaton to promote positive behaviour and further develop a range of fundamental skills for learning.

An exciting year ahead for J4!
