Lots to celebrate with our friends⚽️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🎨🎉

It has been a very busy few weeks in Bumblebees. There is always lots to celebrate this time of year from Autumn to Christmas, plus our ongoing personal achievements, in addition this year we have the World Cup too! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🦁🦁🦁

We often Celebrate through different art activities. For Children in Need we used finger paints to put spots on Pudsey, or we guided adult hands if we didn’t want to get messy.
We used brushes, and rollers to paint a design on a football strip. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

To kick off the World Cup we set up a goal in the classroom, staff modelled being goal keeper, it mostly ended up with ‘hand ball’ and lots of throwing and catching 🤩

Our swimming session continued the football theme…

On Thursday we took our first visit to the Woods this term, the children enjoyed the bus journey and discovering the area, though most seem to prefer the wide open space on the playing field.

We have seen some fabulous interactions: children trying new things; problem solving; communicating verbally or using symbols; or self regulating by enjoying their favourite sensory activities.

Friday was whole school ‘Wellbeing Day’. We enjoyed being together, having fun and participating in sensory bag painting. We are going to add our colourful creations to a whole school ‘Wellbeing’ display.

Bonfire Night and Remembrance Day

We have had lots of fun this week completing activities linked to Bonfire Night. We have explored materials with different textures and have created a collage bonfire picture. We also had lots of fun and made lots of mess creating a group firework picture using paint and glitter.

During our music lesson with Bev, we learnt about Remembrance Day and explored different textured poppies. We have also created poppy paintings.

On Thursday, we spent a morning outside exploring the school grounds. We enjoyed running and playing and had a great time.

We have been practising our problem solving and number skills this week. We have been exploring and sorting numicon, sorting shapes, building train tracks and completing jigsaws. We have enjoyed listening to number rhymes. We are also learning to find our photos for self registration.

We have had such a busy week, learning, playing and having lots of fun.

Diwali Celebrations

The children settled back brilliantly after half term and had a lovely three days celebrating Diwali. We made divas from clay and Rangoli patterns using rice. The children enjoyed exploring the different textures.

On Friday we were very lucky to have some visitors into class. The children were able to listen to a Dhol (tradional Indian drum) and tasted some food.

We also had a lovely time exploring the leaves outside.
