A very busy month for our little learners. In numeracy we have been continuing with counting and making sets and have started time - sequencing how to do things. During literacy time we have been reading lovely books, doing lots of fine motor tasks and writing activities. This term our topics are Winter and Celebrations. We have done lots of winter art and been exploring and experiencing a Chinese New Year. Everyone has loved it. In cookery we made hot chocolate and smores and had a Chinese buffet. The children have loved our Attention Autism sessions and been so focussed and engaged.
Another very busy month for our pupils. In numeracy we have been counting and making sets, sorting coins and counting pennies.

We sequenced the story of ‘The 3 Little Pigs’ and completed lots of work during ‘Nursery Rhyme Week’. In World Around Us we have been learning about the different parts of a house, the rooms and what goes into them. In art we are looking at the work of famous artists and have recreated these through drip painting, concentric circles and dot painting. Two of our pupils also celebrated their 7th birthdays.
Everyone has been a busy bee this month. Pupils have been enjoying lots of Autumn and Harvest table top activities - art, cookery and fine motor tasks. In numeracy we have been sequencing numbers and making sets with an autumn theme. In World Around Us we were learning about Autumn and Harvest and experienced an indoor sensory Autumn walk. Everyone enjoyed helping to make apple crumble and then tasting different Harvest fruits and vegetables in cookery. In Art we then used the fruit and vegetables for printing. We created patterns by rolling conkers in orange, red, yellow and brown paint.
Welcome back to another year. The pupils have all settled into their new surroundings and getting back into routine.

We can’t believe that the end of the school year has arrived!!! The pupils have had a jam packed month with lots of fun, hands on experiences. We went on a minibeast hunt, have watched caterpillars turn into butterflies and enjoyed the bikes and play park. The staff would like to wish everyone a happy, safe and enjoyable summer.
We turned our classroom into an airport/aeroplane, and went on a train to Wallace Park. We started our ‘Living Things’ topic and had an amazing time during the ‘Disney Big Fun Week’. Some of our pupils have been going to the swimming pool this term—and having a fantastic time.
