In week 2 we focused on the NHS guidance 'Catch it, Bin it, Kill it!' and the class were washing their hands for 20 seconds and cleaning their workstations throughout the day and using antibacterial gel before entering and exciting the classroom.
In cookery this half term the class are learning to make their own sandwiches. They are using PECs and Communication Aids to ask for what equipment and ingredients they need.
This week they started with a jam sandwich! After making the sandwich they were then able to sequence pictures of how to make a jam sandwich.
The class settled back into the different school routines and procedures really well. They have begun to identify how they are feeling using the Zones of Regulation and have made 2D versions of themselves for our classroom display. They were also able to label the main parts of their face and body.
I will be uploading lots of information and photographs of what the children are learning about and enjoying during the school day.
This half term our topic focus is 'All About Me' which will help the children settle back into school and support them to tell us how they are feeling and how to keep themselves safe during COVID-19.
Below are some photos of our classroom. The children have their own work area and follow individual timetables. We have PE on a Monday and Expressive Arts on a Friday which the children have really enjoyed since coming back to school.
We have 7 adults in the class, myself (Emma Gildersleve, Assistant Head) Micha (HLTA), Karen, Lorraine, Afjol, Sandra and Katie.
