Welcome back!

Hello everyone,

We hope you all had a lovely half term and we are looking forward to the term ahead.

On Monday in Maths, John-Paul and Olivia worked together on colour recognition, whilst Holly and Luke worked on object recognition. Then we went to the small gym and played with the soft play. After lunch we all went to the sensory room for some stretches and explored our sensory box.

On Tuesday we enjoyed an Art lesson with Eileen, where we explored textures for our new topic. We then made the mix for our pancakes, which we were excited to eat! After lunch we began our new topic of ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’ and read the book through as a class. Then we cooked and tasted our pancakes, Holly and Olivia loved the chocolate spread!

Wednesday was our favourite session, swimming. All the students were very excited to get back into the pool and all worked very hard on their targets. After swimming we had a snack and a drink whilst we wrote our shopping list. After lunch we went to the shops, where we bought lots of things for World Book Day party.

Thursday was World Book Day! We all went to an assembly where we talked about our favourite books and saw the other students costumes, which we fantastic. We had a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, as our staff were dressed as characters from Alice in Wonderland. In the afternoon we had visits from different teachers in our corridor, who came to read us their favourite story. It was a very fun and busy day and the students had a great time.

On Friday John-Paul and Olivia took part in their sitting programme in the classroom, whilst Holly and Luke went to the sensory room for their first TACPAC session. We then went to the art room where we made our very own bears for our bear hunt. After lunch we went round the school learning how to take pictures on iPad’s and then explored our sensory box.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
