End of term

Happy Easter Everyone!

Sarah Gumbs (sgumbs) on: End of term

Wow! What a busy and enjoyable half term we have had! We are SO proud of all of the children they have made great progress over the weeks! Some highlights for us have been:

Lucas saying "more" to an adult to continue a favoured activity and reading parts of The Gruffalo!

Logan learning to tell the time to the hour and wearing his new watch!

Luqmaan understanding that 5p is the same as 5x1ps

Charlie working so well independently in his work station and using the lightbox to help him focus

Ted talking and requesting favoured activities such as "jump" on the trampoline and “spin”

Lucy tracking using her fingertips and using her braille clock

Leah working so hard in literacy and recognising all the doing words

William using lots of speech in our communication sessions when playing anticipation games with the puppets!

Imani for using our outside area so well with her friends, especially when playing hide and seek!

Have a wonderful Easter and don’t eat too many eggs!!

It was great celebrating the Indian festival Hola Mohalla. Monkeys class enjoyed colour dancing in the hall, a colour sensory experience with Lauren and the colour run in the playground. Here's the final messy picture.

What a fabulous entrance by the monkeys class in this years Christmas production of Aladdin. In fact all the children in the entire school were amazing and we had some extremely talented cast members. We saw drama, acting, dancing and singing all happening in this years amazing production.
