Everyone enjoyed their first week at Symondsbury, please check back for photos and news of what we have been upto in Class 1!
Our First Week
Class 1 have thoroughly enjoyed their first couple of weeks at Symondsbury School. They have been really busy; making new friends, learning new rules and routines and the staff have been busy getting to know them too!
Here are a few pictures of what we have been upto...
Lots of opportunities to be creative with the felt tips and paints, working on vertical surfaces is also really good for strengthening our core and shoulders ready for writing. We have seen some wonderful pictures, some of them are up in the classroom!
Tap-It pictures! Another opportunity to be creative, talk about shape and colour and great for our fine motor skills.
Playing in the home corner gives the children lots of opportunities to develop their communication and language skills, their personal, social and emotional skills as well as their imagination.
Getting the woo-woo tubes to make their whistling sound isn't easy...but it's great for our shoulders which in turn is great for our writing!
The diggers and coffee beans were very popular, lots of opportunities for our communication and language skills and using our senses! The classroom has smelt lovely this week!
Again, lots of opportunities to talk and imagine with our small world jungle animals.
All that pressing, squeezing and rolling the playdough is great for the muscles in our hands and fingers and will help us with our writing. We have tried lots of delicious (Playdough) cookies this week!
Our writing area has already been very busy with lots of pictures and writing.
