Green Eggs and Ham

As of Monday we are going to be starting our story Green Eggs and Ham. Please watch the video at home to help embed the story, but underneath you should also see a link to lots of Dr. Seuss activities that you can have a go at!

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone is feeling nice and refreshed after the holidays. Bees have hit the ground running and had a super busy first tow days back. Doing lots of work relating to Bonfire night as well as some baseline assessing of our IEP targets. Check some of the photo highlights below. I have attached the topic overview for you to see all the great stuff that we will be getting up to on the build up to Christmas.

Halloween fun

Have a look at our fantastic Halloween celebrations! What a fabulous day we had. Thank you for all your hard work putting together costumes and your generous party donations. They had a wonderful time. Have a look on our Facebook for lots of whole school goodness.

harvest CELEBRATIONS.

I'm sure you've all seen the note in the diaries. We have had such fun with our Harvest celebrations. We made ginger biscuits, had a harvest sensory story and then had some fruit and veg exploration. Have a look at our day below!

SHapes

In our maths topic until half term we are going to be looking at shape! I will post lots of photos of our work throughout this week, but until then, have a look at these shape songs you can go over at home!

PE

I've been oving our PE topic this term. Every week we have been making a new circuit to explore, with the emphasis on the assessng and progression of gross motor skills. I'm so impressed with some of the improvements in balance, climbing and regulating when working off the ground. Have a look at what a Bees PE lesson looks like!

Fire Engine Visit

We absolutely loved our visit to the Fire Engine! Look at how engaged they all were. We just want to say a massive thank you to Brighouse Fire Station for coming and visiting him.

BEhaviour and regulation

I am so impressed with how well the Bees have settled into their work. All the class are so calm and have completed so much. Look at this amazing video of Alfie doing his work with Stella. It may only be Monday but we have a very strong case for SOTW already

Class Song

The Bees have been learning our two class songs. It would be great if you could practice at home, either helping with your counting, or trying to do your actions to the beehive, buzzing high, low, fast, slow, to the left and to the right? Do you know how to sign the letter b in BSL?

SOTW Week 3

My star for this week is the wonderful Maegan. Maegan has been doing some superb number work this week, as well as learning our class song. Check out this superstar!

topic Overview

Here is our topic overview to take us up till October half term. It sure is filled with some goodies!

PE

In our PE we have been looking at all the great ways we can travel around big apparatus, How do you move around at home?

Music

As we are learning about our school and our new classroom we have been exploring all the areas around us. We loved our sensory play in the Soundbox
