We can’t believe that June is here already. We have had a wonderful year with all the boys and girls in our Early Years Class. Everyone had fun at our Celebration Morning receiving their Star awards for all their hard work. We are so proud of all you have achieved!!!! Good Luck next year we will really miss you.
In Early Years, we have been working hard to achieve our IEP targets with much success. We have been using a range of different ‘tools’ to paint; including potatoes and cleaning brushes. Great fun! Hopefully the sunflowers that we planted will start to bloom soon. We have all really enjoyed our Disney Fun Week, experiencing lots of new activities and joining in with our friends throughout the school.
Early Years have had fun creating beautiful Easter art and crafts. We have enjoyed the warmer weather and all the children have enjoyed exploring in the park. We have introduced ‘Tilly and Tom’ our new puppets to the communication group and the pupils have enjoyed brushing their teeth and singing along to our songs.
Early Years have been making the most of the sunshine and have enjoyed trips to our school play park and more outdoor activities. We enjoyed dressing up for St. Patrick’s day and World book day.
Early Years have had lots of fun exploring Valentine’s art and sensory activities. We investigated different foods for the Chinese New Year and experimented with cooked and uncooked noodles and rice. All the children have been enjoying our communication group and making choices for their favourite Nursery Rhymes. We all made grass heads and have been watering them to make their grass hair grow. We celebrated two big Fourth birthday parties this month.
Happy new year to everyone!! All the Early Years pupils have settled back into school life after their time off over Christmas. Our topic this month has been nursery rhymes; where the children have enjoyed ‘patting cakes’ in our bakery and finding the black sheep in our farm tray. Our pupils have participated in the drumming workshop where they sit well and make lots of noise banging the drums!!!
Another fun month in Early Years, our pupils have been busy creating beautiful Christmas decorations. We have had fun in lots of Christmas and winter themed sensory trays. We all enjoyed the junior Sensory Sensations morning getting very messy.
The Early Years have been enjoying a lot of play experiences in their outside classroom this month. We have been experimenting with dry leaves, wet and dry sand and different light resources. We all enjoyed putting the glow sticks into the water tray to make the water glow and throwing the leaves at each other. Our Occupational Therapy group has started and we are developing our fine motor skills, as well as our attention and engagement. It was great meeting all of our parents during the IEP meetings and hearing how all of the children are getting on at home.
We have had lots of fun this month exploring our school and settling in to our new routines. We have enjoyed lots of sensory activities, playing in coloured rice, sand, water, pasta leaves and paint– we love getting very messy!
Our topic is ‘All about Me’ and the staff are getting to know all our favourite things. We are looking forward to using all our senses to explore the topic of ‘Autumn’.
