What We Learnt Last Half Term

It’s Just a Load of Old Rubbish

The Swans have had a fantastic term. We have enjoyed our topic “It’s Just a Load of Old Rubbish”. We have been reading, “Where Does All the Garbage Go?”. Whilst reading this book we have been exploring lots of different sensory props and creating different art pictures related to the book.

We have explored different foods and really enjoyed getting messy and exploring dry and wet textures. The children have used all of their senses when exploring and really enjoyed the different foods such as strawberry jam with cupcakes, dates with Greek yogurt, cookies with ice-cream, bananas with cupcakes and much more.

Our Sensory Art sessions have been lots of fun. We have been creating art pieces related to different colours. We have explored the scent and texture, which is related to a specific colour and used the torches to look at the colours more closely.

The Swans have been working hard developing their communication and physical skills this term. This has involved weekly Jabadao sessions in the studio which we all love! Intensive Interaction sessions; Visual Therapy sessions; Eye Gaze; Music and Movement sessions and Sensory Journeys in our Yoga and Massage sessions, to name just a few!

We have loved our Music sessions and have really engaged with lots of different instruments when listening to the ‘Can Do Music’ CD.

The Swans have also been developing their pre-writing skills, in their Move and Mark sessions, where they have been exploring various types of wet and dry foods, for instance: coffee, cornflakes, pineapple jam and much more. They have enjoyed making marks in these sessions.

Another busy term, but a fantastic one.

Have a great week off.
