What We Learnt Last Half Term

Earth, Wind and Fire

The Swans have had a fantastic term. We have really enjoyed the Earth, Wind and Fire topic. We have been reading, “The 5 Little Men in a Flying Saucer” book. While reading this book we have been exploring lots of different sensory props and creating lots of different pictures related to the book, using various sensory resources.

We have explored lots of different foods and really enjoyed getting messy and exploring different dry and wet textures. The children have used all of their senses when exploring and enjoyed the different foods such as passion fruit, root vegetables etc.

Our Sensory Art sessions have been lots of fun. We have been creating different 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 lessons; eye gaze; music and movement sessions and sensory journeys in our Yoga and Massage session, to name just a few!

We have loved our Music lessons and have really engaged with lots of different instruments.

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: custard, coco pops, icing sugar and much more. They have enjoyed making marks in these sessions.

Another busy term, but a fantastic one.

Have a great half term.
