Termly Focus - Spring Term 2021
Posted: Jan 21, 2021 by: charlottedowson on: Senior 4 Termly Focus
This term our students will continue to follow a sensory curriculum which allows them to engage in learning through play and sensory activities. We will continue to work on four programs of learning: communication, social and emotional, mobility and cognition.
Our topic this term is ‘Weather’. We will be learning about different types the weather and clothes we need to wear for each of them. We will learn how to sign hot (warm), cold and some weather related words. We will explore cold and warm items, textures, various types of food/snacks in order to understand the difference between warm and cold.
We will have fun exploring sensory resources linked with the ‘Weather’ theme and our main activities will be organized around the following stories: Jack Frost, Little Cloud, Noah’s Ark and The Easter Story.
We will create a daily weather chart and we will engage in drumming, anticipation, and rhyming songs in the ‘Music for interaction’, ‘morning group’ and ‘resonance board session.
The students will also create crafts for the sensory displays, will explore different textures during messy play and will enjoy music and movement in our ‘Sensory dance session’.
We will continue to learn through play and hopefully we will have great fun exploring the environment and make sense of the world around us.
