D’vash Class have settled back into school so well and are all very happy to be back together again.
This term we are focusing on a farm theme. In art we created our own animal faces and worked together to mix paint colours to make pink and light yellow, for pigs and chicks respectively. We
have been singing lots of farm songs, with “The Farmyard Jamboree” being the current class favourite – it has also helped us to practice our counting skills and learn more about the life cycle. With the weather warming up, we have had lots of opportunities to have our lessons outside and explore the forest. The whole class has also enjoyed using OT room, and we are practising sharing the equipment with our friends and waiting for our turn…we will continue to do lots of work around this in the coming months!
In Maths, we have been learning about money. This week we focused on recognising the coins and matching them into groups, before learning to count the money and make addition sums to add coins together. In free play, we have been pretending to be shoppers and shopkeepers, so we are all ready now the shops are open again!
