What We Learnt Last Half Term

It’s Just a Load of Old Rubbish

Happy Half Term from the Pelicans

We’ve been really busy this half term looking and exploring all things ‘rubbish’. We have explored ‘junk’ material each week in one of our Sensory Exploration sessions. We have looked at heavy and light materials, rough and smooth materials and opaque and transparent materials. We have used recycled kitchen utensils to make marks in Art and Craft. The children really enjoyed both these sessions. In Sensory Exploration sessions the children were been able to choose whether or not to explore ‘sand’, ‘water’ or ‘foam’.  In Sensory Art we explored how we can make marks using the juice from different foods. Lots of mess was made and lots of fun was had!

The children have had lots of different opportunities to work on their Physical Development. In the mornings we work on physio targets, we have regular Jabadao sessions and have the opportunity to go in the MILE room, on top of which we have planned sessions of swimming, on the bikes and using the equipment on Moomalade.

We’re definitely ready for our half term break so we can recharge our batteries ready to come back for our last half term and ‘Sun, Sand and Sea.’
