Sorry it's been a while since we've shared our learning and news. Here is a little catch up on what we were up to in Dec.
Arts and Crafts.....
Playing on yard with Orla's class......
Life skills, we went for walk to McDonald's. My guys loved it. Who doesn't! We made a list of what we all wanted, placed our order, waited, really enjoyed it, cleaned up and walked back to school with happy bellies!
This week we have been reading the story of 'The Three Little Pigs'. We drew our characters from the story and coloured them in along with their houses. We sequenced the story and made a fabulous display of our work. We even got Niamh to bring in straw from her farm at home to make our straw houses. Here is a sneak preview of our work.
We've also been working on some threading activities.....
We have been working hard on our Maths for the past few weeks. We have been focusing on sorting, number line activities and learning how to bundle and exchange with tens and units. We have been doing some great work using giant number lines, pictures and lollipop sticks to help us learn new math skills.
It has taken a week and a day to build but finally our new trampoline is assembled and ready to enjoy! Every day the children have been watching the adults put sweat and tears into putting this colossal piece of equipment together. They have been so patient and encouraging. And now to enjoy the fruits of our collective labour!
Welcome to our new school year. We are delighted to be back, ready to learn lots, explore new things, have fun but most of all spend the next few months together! Keep checking into our news and sensory activities page to see and read about all the things we have been doing.
First things first.....we finally got our ball pool! Talk about the excitement of it! The children couldn't wait to jump in and the novelty hasn't worn off yet!
We also welcomed a new boy to our class. Looks like he has made a buddy already!
We already know we have a fabulous class with fabulous parents but today's events really brought it home to us! We marked A's graduation from our school. Look at the send off we gave him. Our families took time out of their busy lives to show A how much he means to us and how he will be missed. Just goes to show what a wonderful sense of community and support we have for each other. Much love to all who came today. We know it means a lot to A and his parents.
