Welcome to Olive class
Children: 7 boys and 2 girls
Staff: Andy, Jackie & Emma
We have had an addition to Olive class this term with Callum joining us and he has settled in and made friends really quickly.
This term our topic is the circus and we have been making clowns, lions, elephants and acrobats to place around the classroom. We have also been looking at role play and how to create the Olive class circus by practicing circus skills such as juggling, plate spinning and acting like a clown. The class are also reading stories about the circus such as I see circus, circus in the sky and the fabulous Foskett Family circus. As well as stories about the circus, we have been working on our narrative and storytelling by working on a story called ‘the robber’ which has lots of sound effects and actions.
Our main focuses this term are communication, independence and our problem solving skills. We have continued to work hard with our communication and independence by working on our play skills, making our own sandwiches, dressing ourselves after swimming and PE and making sure we keep looking after the class guinea pigs Eric & Norman who have really grown over the past term. We now help feed them and keep them clean with our friends from Palm class.
