This week we have decided that our Oakwood Superstar is…
Well done! You have coped so well with transitions and small changes throughout the week a huge well done! We are so proud that you are building up more confidence and trust in you adults to support you with toileting and you are cooperating extremely well. You amaze us everyday!
On Monday we used play dough to make daisies. We had to roll the play dough into a ball then flatten it down on the table, then we got some cotton buds and poked them into the play dough to make the petals.
Doves enjoyed playing with a variety of toys this week. We enjoyed pouring and emptying containers during our water play, making long and short caterpillars using tweezers and pom poms and Ben brought in his own personalised labels for his eggs ‘Ben’s Hens’ to show Doves class… they looked fantastic.
The sun shined down on Oakwood this week, we have loved playing outside on the playgrounds in the sunshine. We enjoyed exploring a variety of play equipment such as: stilts, balls, bikes, scooters, wobble boards and the parachute.
On Wednesday we further developed our cutting and spreading skills during our cooking session. Using the communication boards we got to chose between butter or cream cheese to spread on to the crackers and then chose different fruits to cut up and put on our crackers.
On Thursday we all got very excited as it was our first session this half term to go swimming 🏊♂️ We loved being back in the pool again splahing around, gaining our confidence back in the water and playing with the inflatables.
Today we enjoyed taking part in our dough disco session followed by some parachute time! We also had Jane our Speech and Language therapist come into Doves class to work 1 to 1 with the children and she will be back again next Friday with more exciting activities for Doves.
Have a lovely weekend everyone and we will see you all back in Doves class for another amazing week! ☀️☺️
