Termly Focus - Spring Term 2022
Posted: Jan 17, 2022 by: charlottedowson on: Hedgehog Termly Focus
This term the Hedgehogs class will be very busy as we begin our new topic ‘From Farm to Fork’. We will continue to follow a sensory curriculum, learning through 1-1 and small group play and Intensive Interaction sessions. Our sensory story this term will focus on ‘Growing on the farm’ and we will be having fun exploring tactile resources relating to our text, such as ‘edible compost’, fruits and vegetables, water spray, toy tractors and trailers.
We will be creating a display on our class room wall with our topic art work. The children will be having lots of fun exploring collage materials to create animals for our farm. We will also be exploring vegetables and using printing to create different designs. We will look at Spring themed sensory trays, including small play scenarios, and we will be creating finger print tree blossom pictures.
We have lots of baking sessions planned which the children always enjoy, and will continue with weekly music activities, TACPAC and communication groups. Swimming will continue three times weekly and we will frequently visit the Rebound and Sensory Integration room throughout the week.
When the weather is nice, we plan to have walks into the local community, visit the shops and the weekly market. We also intend to go on a nature walk to see how the environment is changing as the Spring season evolves.
