We have had a busy but wonderful start to the new school year and are so proud of how well the children have settled into Bluebell class. We are getting to know our new environment, each other and learning how to be safe.
We are a very happy class
Our topic this half term is 'Our Favourite Things'.
We will be exploring some of our favourite colours, foods, toys, hobbies and songs.
We will be learning to use our communication books/boards and also be using makaton to sign new words as well as daily routine vocabulary.
Here are a few of the activities we have planned for the half term;
Sensory story- nursery rhymes ( Incy Wincy Spider, Rainbows, Humpty Dumpty, Old Macdonald Had a Farm, Miss Polly Had a Dolly, The Wheels on the Bus )
