What We Learnt Last Half Term

People, Places and Planets

The Pelicans have had a great start to the school year. We have been working on getting to know each other and recognising ourselves and our friends through registration. We have also been finding out how we like to move and what we are interested in through our JABADAO sessions.

We have been working really hard on our communication making lots of choices using objects and photographs, requesting more by using a Big Mac and vocalising. Some of us have also been using the EyeGaze alongside ‘ChooseIt Maker 3’.

Our topic this half term has been ‘People, Places and Planets’ and we have been focussing on Space. We have been visiting Planet Boo through our sensory story, meeting our Alien friends for a picnic of sticky slugs on sticks, slurping puddle soup and washing it down with a drink of sparkling moon shine.

Through our Sensory Art sessions we have made our Alien friends by exploring scented paint and using shiny textures to make our space suits.

We have had some exciting Music sessions with Jess from Live Music Now where we have listened to her playing to us as well as taking a turn on the instruments for ourselves. We have made lots of positive responses to the music and look forward to continuing the sessions next half term.

This last week we are finishing on a spooky theme creating lots of Halloween decorations through Art, exploring and tasting pumpkins in Cookery and exploring dry and cooked Halloween pasta.
