What We Learnt Last Half Term

People, Places and Planets

Well Autumn is well and truly here and the Summer seems like such a long time ago! The Swans have settled back into school very quickly following the long holiday and have been very busy. We have been getting to know new staff as well as our new PALS partners, the Doves. We have been having a fantastic time in our PALS sessions playing games, sharing toys and dressing up!

Our half termly topic has been ‘People, Places and Planets’. The Sensory Story we have been reading is ‘The Fish Who Could Wish’ and we have been exploring lots of different sensory props. We have also been investigating lots of objects from under the sea, including a real fish!

We have explored lots of different food and really enjoyed getting messy and exploring different dry and wet textures.

Our Sensory Art sessions have been lots of fun. We have explored a different colour each week with a sensory smell. The children have used different tools and different colours to make a different planet each week.

The Swans have been working hard developing their communication and physical skills this half term. This has involved weekly JABADAO sessions in the studio which we all love! As well as Intensive Interaction sessions; playing different P.E games; music and movement sessions and sensory journeys in our Yoga and Massage sessions, just to name a few!

We have also had our Eid Celebration Day activities. Our celebrations involved making a star and moon mobile, making an Eid prayer mat, exploring some lovely food and listening to music.

Wow! What a busy half term the Swans have had! We hope you have a lovely half term break and we will see you again next half term where we will be exploring our “All the World’s a Stage” topic and….CHRISTMAS!
