It was great to see the boys back after Christmas, all looking well rested and ready for 2019. In our communication group, we loved hearing what everyone got for Christmas from our Christmas Holiday news sheets. There was no rest for class 2! We were back on schedule and ready to start some hard work with lots of fun along the way. This term we are going to be concentrating on our independence skills - both in school and at home. We have made a great start at these skills and Well Done mums and dads for supporting this!
November has been such a fun month in our class. Our topic was “toys”. We had toy hunts around the school and we loved it.
In cookery we made firework breadsticks which we dipped in chocolate and sprinkles. We LOVED eating them. Claire also made scones with us and we even had enough left over to send home.
We have been loving Attention Autism this month and Claire bouncing on the cornflakes was a real source of entertainment to all the children and staff.
In ‘World Around Us’, we have been investigating hot and cold. We didn’t like touching the cold objects but we liked eating them. We explored ice- lollies, ice pops and ice cream. We even coloured our ice and painted with it. When exploring hot objects, we enjoyed some hot chocolate and making soup.
It is getting very exciting in Class 2 as we have been practicing our Christmas songs for the carol service. We can’t wait to December to learn all about Christmas!
We have been so busy during the month of October. We got to meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse at the launch of ‘Donard to Disney’ – we all loved this!! We have done lots of Autumn art and loved exploring Autumn vegetables. One of our favourite activities was digging for “spuds”. All the boys loved getting dirty while digging in the muck. We also enjoyed “washing” carrots in our water tray. During the month of October, we did “show and tell”. We each brought in our favourite toys from home and got to show them to all our friends in our class. Printing with Lego on our pumpkins was great fun and we have also explored the colours yellow and orange.
It was fantastic to see everyone back after a great summer holiday. We had a great few weeks settling in and enjoyed some really fun activities. The colour we are looking at this month is red. We have painted red hands, used Duplo to create red prints and made red sponge prints.
Playing outside is our favourite. We love playing on the bikes and in the toy cars. We have had sand play outside and water play.
We love Attention Autism and it’s so exciting to see what comes out of the bucket.
We have welcomed a new pupil to our class and he has settled in so well and loves taking part in all our activities.
We hope everyone has a great year in class 2.
Class 2 enjoyed Summer Sensory Sensations and lots of messy play in the classroom. We enjoyed making memories at the Fun House with our friends. The staff in class 2 wish you all a lovely Summer.
This term we have begun by learning all about the signs of Spring. The class have enjoyed going on a Spring Hunt and looking for signs of Spring. We have created beautiful blossom pictures using paints and tissue paper.
We have enjoyed our garden centre role play area. We have been learning to plant seeds and look after them as they grow. This has been good practice for the school sunflower competition!
We enjoyed exploring the story of Sam’s Sandwich. We made our own sandwiches for our break. It was great fun playing in our role-play sandwich shop. We have been decorating eggs for Easter.
Class 2 have been learning all about winter. We have been exploring a winter poem and getting dressed up for the snowy weather!
We have been painting snowmen and matching mittens.
