Welcome back, we hope you all had a lovely half term.
This week we have started a new story ‘That’s not my Polar Bear’. We enjoyed meeting Mr Polar Bear and then working to develop our fine motor skills as we explored cotton wool and added it to sticky glue to create our own fluffy white polar bears.
We were pleased to see Jude back in school briefly this week, it was great to see him smiling and showing enjoyment meeting his friends.
We would like to say a big well done to Ihsan this week. He has been our star of the week for doing excellent work in the swimming pool, blowing bubbles with his face in the water and experiencing movement on his back. Elijah has also been having lots of fun in the water during his hydro session; we made up a fun game for him to tow Safoorah around in the water in his little yellow taxi boat, which they both found funny!
Eduard has also been making good progress with his eating. He has not previously shown a lot of enjoyment with school dinners, but in recent weeks, he has enjoyed having a taste of a few new flavours. Well done! 👏
Lola has been very helpful with the nurses this week, helping them with the syringes and using her palmer grasp to help push the water out. Keep up the good work Lola!
Jacob has been doing some great looking this week. He watched Bucket Time with interest this week and tracked the colourful spinner as it moved from side to side.
Ibrahim did super work during his rebound therapy session on Friday. He did good sitting balance and head control and even managed to keep his balance as an adult walked around him and tried to wobble him! He later then went in his standing frame, keeping those muscles supple. Super physical skills!
Have a great weekend everyone, see you all on Monday
From Sarah and all of team Doves 🕊️
