Ivy, fig & fir classes
Ivy Motor skills
We do lots of different activities in Ivy to practice fine and gross motor skills.
Art in Fig
In Art Fig have been using shapes to create body silhouette. First we had to look at the shapes and decide which was the best shape for the body part. We then drew around and coloured in the shape. Here are some example.
Shopping in Fig
We have been looking at the different coins to help us with our shopping unit. We have been looking at the different coins and have been naming them. We have learnt the names of 1p,2p,5p,10p,20p,50p and £1. This is a vital skill as in the Spring/ Summer term we are looking forward to going to tesco to buy some ingredients.
Cooking in Fig
In Fig we have been learning about the skills that are required to make a cheese sandwich. Over the last few weeks we have been learning how to spread butter on the bread and how to grate cheese! We are looking forward to our cheese sandwiches.
In Fir class we have been role-playing traditional fairy tales. Role playing stories helps us to remember how a story is structured, supports us with retelling the story and we develop a deeper understanding of the different characters including how they feel.
In Ivy Class we have been participating in Sensory Play, where pupils participate in feeling, smelling, looking at various materials and resources. Such activities often fulfil their sensory needs and therefore develop their ability to engage and focus. We often incorporate food into their sensory play as a part of food therapy so that pupils expand their tolerance to various food items
