Reading – 

Audiobooks are a great way to experience new stories. Find some props for your child’s favourite book and explore the sensory elements together.

Counting – 

We love these counting games! Count together using the website or even count objects such as ‘how many grapes?’ or ‘how many cars do we have?’

Mark making – use shaving foam to make marks or chalk to make scribbles. Horizontal or vertical marks are our targets at the minute.

Physical –explore the outdoor areas around your house such as the garden or park. We are exploring climbing over things and climbing up things with support.

Class Updates –

In Art, Rabbit class have explored the art work on Alma Thomas. She specialises in printing and we have tried to emulate this art with playdough and our own printing. We are very proud of our gallery in class that displays our favourite pieces.

Rabbit class have been working on personal care as part of our PSHE and modelled play sessions. We have used a doll’s head to learn about hair brushing and how we can take care of ourselves. We have done very well and really learnt about our personal care needs.

Rabbit class have had their Splash certificate ceremony in class for all of our hard work in the pool. We accepted our certificates and really enjoyed when our peers clapped for us. Well done Rabbits!

Rabbit class enjoyed a story massage during Literacy Week. We read about Japanese flowers and how they grow and we loved feeling the different massage movements on our back. Some peers even helped to massage their friends!

Rabbit class have been enjoying ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ as our playscript text. In our writing sessions, we have been mark making around a picture and using playdough to make the beanstalk or the magic beans. This has helped us to hold the pencil using a pincer grip. We also love using whiteboards and pens and then rubbing away our work.

In our pre-formal phonics session, Rabbit class have been identifying if two words rhyme or not. We have been using symbols to communicate our answer and have really enjoyed choosing the rhyming songs that match each rhyming word. Great work Rabbit class!

Rabbit class have been using a Noah’s Ark game to practise turn taking. We use photos of our friends to know who is coming next and a wait symbol to signify that it is not our turn yet. Well done Rabbits!

Rabbit class were learning how to take turns and practice their communication skills, making pizza dough in Sensory Cooking. They then added the toppings to the dough in Scrummy Crew and baked the pizza for snack. The children all took turns adding the ingredients,  mixed with a spoon and activated the mixer by pressing the switch. Article 13 (freedom of expression) Every child must be free to express their thoughts and opinions and to access all kinds of information,

In Music, we have been exploring instruments that would fit into different times of year. We started with Spring and used Vivaldi’s classical music ‘Seasons’ as our accompaniment. Everyone tried really hard to explore the instrument and copy the adult who modelled how they could be played. Rabbit class had lots of happy, smiley faces and I think we might have some budding musicians!

Rabbit class had a great festive time at the garden centre, exploring the Christmas displays and items. We used a PODD mat to comment on what we could see but our favourite part were the twinkly lights.

Article 29: education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full.
