Let’s Go On Holiday!

Hello and welcome to the summer term in Badger Class! our main topic is Let’s Go On Holiday and the Badgers have got off to a flying start. They read a new book called Teddy Takes A Tumble which is about a little boy who forgets to strap his teddy into his car seat. When his mum has to brake suddenly, Teddy falls onto the floor. Fortunately he is ok, but a bis shocked. Of course, the moral of the story is to make sure you do up your seat belt in the car! The Little Badgers had fun strapping Teddy into his car seat and a few of them surprised us as they were very good at this!

They also watched a video of an aeroplane taking off and landing and all pretended they were on the plane, going on holiday.

The Little Badgers also started to get ready for Eid by watching and singing along to Eid songs on You Tube and making an Eid card, which you should have found in their bags. Eid is on Monday and Tuesday, so if your Little Badger will still be celebrating with family on Tuesday, just let us know.

The Badgers had two PE lessons this week, as they are not swimming this half-term. They had great fun using the apparatus and following an obstacle course. They also had fun exercising outside and playing games of ”follow the leader”.

Our Star of the Week this week was Rizwanul, who has been making lots of efforts with receptive and expressive communication, including using PECS, making vocalisations and following verbal instructions. Well done, Rizwanul!

Next week, we will continue to explore the theme of holidays so it would be great if you could let us know what your Little Badger has been up to over he Bank Holiday weekend and if possible send in a photo. You can email it to postbox@oakwood.walsall.sch.uk or print it off and pop it in their diary bag.

Easter

Happy Easter, everyone!

This week the Badgers have watched the Easter story on the big screen and done lots of lovely Easter activities. They made their Easter bonnets and had a parade around the classroom and did an Easter Egg hunt around school. They had such fun!

The Little Badgers have done lots of other activities this week too, including using Numicon and number jigsaws.

And our Star of the Week was Haseeb, for learning to zip up his coat all by himself!

It’s been a fantastic half-term and we can’t wait to get back on 25th April to see what the Little Badgers will learn to do next! Our topic will be Let’s Go On Holiday!

Holi

Last week we found out about the Hindu festival of Holi which is about celebrating the colours of spring.The children did an experiment with skittles and water and used lots of colours to make patterns.

The children also explored and planted some spring flowers which we have put in our little garden.

our Star of the Week was Harrison for good participation in Attention Autism sessions.
