Today was a very exciting day in our class - it was our first ever school 'tour'! Although we didn't leave the school campus, we were very excited when we saw that we had our very own bouncy castle on our yard today - check it out!
We also enjoyed some water play in our paddling pool - it was lots of fun!
In Orla's class, we love going to the sensory room and comfort room... but we also love doing sensory play - water play, sand, water beads, musical instruments, spinning or rocking chairs, messy play and lots more!
We did lots of work on our colouring and painting skills during the month of April. We practised colouring every day and did some beautiful pieces of art! How wonderful do they look?!
We have also been getting lots of exercise over the past few weeks. We love getting outside or to the Central Activity Space, especially after our hard work in the classroom! We love running and playing on yard, including going on our bikes. We got a new see-saw too, which has been a great treat!
Here is a little snippet of some of the work tasks we have been doing over the past few weeks.
There are lots of activities and routines which we do every day/week in school - play, groupwork, sensory play, going to the OT room, yard, lunch, going to the sensory room, music, art and lots more. Have a look at some of our activities over the past 2 weeks!
We love our trip to the sensory room each day. It is a wonderful, calm space for us to chill out.
We got a new floor piano this week and it has been a big hit. If only you could hear the songs we have created!
On the 22nd February, we were able to return to the school building. We focused on settling back into our routines and having lots of fun!
It was just our class and Claire's class in the building, so we were able to take advantage of having the whole school to ourselves! We explored the grounds, ran through the grass, found the stream along the side of the school and had a great time.
Sometimes, we do activities in small groups or 1:1 with an adult, but lately, we have been doing lots of whole-class activities. Our lovely new horseshoe table arrived in December, which means we can do our circle time here and sit beside one another - we love it!
Check out lunch time in our classroom - we all sit together to eat.
We are superstars!!
We are also learning to line up together before we go to yard.
Once we have our coats and hats on, we line up at the door and wait until everyone is ready before we can go. We are getting better at it all the time!
Smiles from Orla's class!
We had a wonderful month, with lots to report. Our sensory room was finished and we have started visiting it every day - we love it in there!
We have been learning to do new Groupwork tasks and working hard.
Finally, have a look at some of our playtime and sensory play which we have been enjoying!
November has been a super month. Take a look at what we've been getting up to!
We've been enjoying our new lights which will be part of our sensory room. They are very calming and we love to sit quietly and watch them change colours.
We enjoyed some water play, even getting some nice foot baths!
Active time and play time:
We have had lots of active time this month - playing on yard, bouncing on the trampoline, playing together in our indoor activity space. We also enjoy some play time every day!
We have been practising lots of our work tasks - peg boards, colour matching, threading, using Play Doh, stacking activities and lots more.
