The new Neptune class has settled in well and we have been enjoying getting to know our new friends and helpers. This half term we have been exploring and sharing things we like and things we don’t like and have been using our senses to investigate different things. We enjoyed looking at ourselves in mirrors and trying on different hats, wigs and glasses. We thought it was very funny to use the secret feely box and touch hidden items, the mashed banana made us all laugh! We have been painting with spices and making herb playdough. We have been enjoying doing our lying program all together and working on our physical targets. Some of us have been learning to use the eye gaze for communication and others continue to use personalised communication book.
Spring term was busy and fun in Neptune class, and after a refreshing Easter break, we are now ready to start the Summer term! Our Topic this half term is “Tutti Fruity”. Within this topic, we will be exploring fruit through all of our senses, and planting and growing some of our own fruit also! A more detailed curriculum map will be sent home in each child’s book bag during the first week back.
Physiotherapy and swimming sessions continue to be held on Thursday mornings.
