We have had a fabulous first week back at school, the children have continued to engage and explore our wonderful activities.
We celebrated pancake day together with mixing, stirring, adding, sprinkling , tasting and feeling our ingredients. Lots of children were able to pour and add ingredients independently as well as enjoying all the sensory aspects of this session. We even tasted our pancake toppings, lemon and sugar 😋🍋, the children showed some great facial expressions and responses. We created paper pancakes with mark making and sugar , adding symbols of the ingredients, reinforcing names and images of all items. The children were encouraged to cut and stick the symbols independently. To finish our wonderful pancake celebrations we had a go at flipping pancakes, small pancakes in pans and pretend pancakes with bats. The children developed many skills within this session, strengthening fine and gross motor skills, problem solving, communication and language skills as well as working alongside peers for our personal, social and emotional development. Well done children 🤩🥞
We are so very proud of how our children are developing their attention and concentration during attention autism sessions (bucket time). The children have all worked very hard since September on good sitting, listening and waiting whilst we share wonderful cause and effect objects/toys in stage one of our attention autism. We have moved onto stage two now which is just fantastic 🤩 well done ladybirds. During this part of the session we share a visually stimulating activity which aims to sustain our children’s attention for prolonged periods. Ladybirds are showing great reactions, anticipation, concentration and attention , it is just fantastic to watch and these skills are developing each week.
Have a lovely weekend everyone
Lisa, Paula and the ladybird team 🐞❤️
