Key information this term (Spring 2018)

This term our topic is All About Me. We will be looking at where we live, who we live with and what we like to do with our family and friends. We will also be looking at our senses and talking about things we like to taste and touch.

We will be talking about what makes us special and how we can show our friends and family that we are happy.

Every day in class we will be taking part in our Sensory Circuits to help get us ready for our work. We will also use our sensory trays to explore different textures and smells.

We will take part in weekly singing sessions with our music teacher where we will be learning different songs and playing a variety of instruments.

For our P.E sessions we will have the opportunity to go swimming and take part in Gymnastics sessions with an outside specialist. Mr. Lambert will also teach us how to play team games and develop our P.E skills.

Class Willow learns in a fun and functioning environment with constant access to sensory stimuli which supports the children to access their curriculum successfully.

In class Willow we use practical tasks to develop our mathematical skills, here we our using play doh to investigate long and short.

After reading the book ‘Oliver’s vegetables’ class Willow explored the sensory area. They looked for the different vegetables in the garden to dig up, washed and cut them. We then tasted the vegetables both cooked and uncooked.

Once a week Class Willow goes to a soft play centre, we develop our physical skills as well as having opportunities to develop social skills such as turn taking.
