Class 1 - Stingray
Term 4 Report
We’ve enjoyed and explore all different types of weather this term, particularly the snow! We continue to have regular ‘Dough Disco’ sessions and we’re getting really good at the different actions – this is helping us to develop our finger strength for writing.
We have explored our topic of dinosaurs more and have had opportunities to make salt dough dinosaur ‘fossils’ and we also used a recipe from Nina and the Neurons to make our own volcano eruption!
We have celebrated World Book Day with a ‘reading café’ and were lucky to have a visiting storytelling workshop come into school. The storyteller told us a story about an alien called ‘Hootah’ and made it really interactive and sensory for us! At the end of the term we enjoyed having some parents join us for a rather muddy Easter event in the school garden.
A busy Term 4 – we were all ready for a nice break!
Term 3 Report
We have particularly enjoyed being outdoors and were lucky to have our very own School Garden and Forest School weekly session with Ruth on a Monday morning, several of which were very muddy sessions! We have enjoyed using the new rope tree balance that Ruth made and hunting for dinosaurs and following footprints. Back in class we have been learning about shapes; we’ve been on shape hunts and have practised sorting shapes into different groups and describing different shapes. We’ve also started having a ‘sensory snack’ once a week to encourage the children to explore different foods – so far we’ve explored ‘red’ and ‘green’ coloured foods!
