All the Halloween fun over so November was time to focus on interacting, requesting and making choices. We continued with our Music Therapy and also fitted in an Autumn walk, Panto and a Captain Cook’s lunch for the birthday boy!
This month we have explored materials and continued with our music therapy and requesting sessions. We had a dinosaur themed numeracy week and Harvest Assembly. We are now preparing for Halloween. Such a busy month!
Hard to believe September is over. Class 8 have had a great month working on choice making, exploring our room and recently we have started to take part in a ‘daily mile’ walk around the playground.
Conor really enjoyed his music sessions with Neal and Joe during the Disney Fun Week. He particularly liked interacting with the guitar when Neal visited and using the drums when Joe visited. Conor appreciated the good weather and was able to get involved with water play and he really liked having a balloon sword made for him by the balloon modelers.
There has been great engagement and enjoyment this month in Class 8. The pupils have been learning all about Spring and Easter. We have been creating art work using a range of different textures and mediums. We have been using our all our senses to experience the smells, tastes, and sounds of Spring.
The pupils in Class 8 have taken part in a wide variety of tasks of a practical nature this month. Activities have involved being both in and outside of the classroom. Our class particularly enjoyed the sensory and therapy work shown in our photographs.
There has been good progress made with jobs such as using the trolley to make a delivery and collecting the laundry.
In Class 8 we enjoyed socialising for a birthday party. We also tried out the OT swing and enjoyed it. Class 8 are also enjoying Golden Time and have a leavers pupil comes every Friday for snacks and videos. We are really enjoying our independent walks and our latest is to push the trolley to the senior end of school for gardening.
We have loved having music therapist in to work with us.
Class 8 have been working on completing functional tasks in class and around the school. We have been getting ‘hands on’ with making our own break, toasting bread and making juice.
We have been taking part in sensory circuits and sensory walks. We are working more independently in our tidy up task.
We have shown great engagement in our learning and are settling into school routine. We have been following schedules and are enjoying lots of new activities. One of us has particularly liked music and parachute games.
Class 8 have been enjoying and exploring seasonal tastes and smells this month.
We have particularly enjoyed sensory cookery and trying the results. We had a trip to Jumpboxx, where we tried out some of the smaller trampolines, we had a great time!
He has really enjoyed stories in the sensory area.
We have also produced some great winter art as well.
Class 8 wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
We can’t believe how quickly this month has gone! We have been enjoying the sun and have been busy with our ‘Summer Time’ topic.
We’ve enjoyed sensory play with blue jelly, water and sand.
We’ve been working on lots of Summer themed art. We have used lots of painting tools. One pupil loved using summer fruits to create his picture and was fantastic at copying a pattern.
We have enjoyed sensory cookery and have tasted lots of summer fruits. One of the favourites this month was our fruit smoothie! We have had a busy month practicing or Sports Day. We really enjoyed ball games and are fantastic at catching!
We wish two of our pupils all the best for next year in LinenBridge - We will miss them here at Donard!
