What We Learnt Last Half Term

Earth, Wind and Fire

The Toucans have had a fun and busy first half term.  We have focussed our learning around our book ‘Titch.’  The children have been mark making using different resources and collage materials, some of us have been finding objects that are taller or shorter than Titch.  We have developed our communicative skills using switches, communication aids, boards and symbols.  Some of the children have been making requests, initiating conversation and answering questions including who, what and where.  We have developed our attention and social skills through game play including bingo and pass the parcel!  Although some of us found pass the parcel quite difficult, we have become more accepting of taking turns and sharing with our friends.  We have thoroughly enjoyed our Art lessons and we have linked this with our PSHE work; thinking about and learning to understand our emotions.  We have used different techniques in Art to complete our work we have collaged, painted with string, crayoned with wax crayons and over-washed and use a range of textures to create bears.

Have a lovely half term break,

The Toucans
