Welcome to Olive class

Children: 9 boys and 2 girls

Staff: Andy, Amy, Emma & Michelle

 

This term, our topic is once upon a time and we have been looking at lots of different fairy tales that we like to read such as the Gingerbread Man, Jack and the Beanstalk and The Three Little pigs which we managed to turn into fantastic pieces of art work. We have done some fantastic reading and comprehension work around these stories and for our Harvest performance we even managed to grow our own little beanstalks 🙂

 

As we have a lot of new faces this year in Olive class, our main focus to start the year has been to engage in all of our work/play and get to know all our new friends both staff and children. We have also been looking to get out into our community more and visit shops, cafes, supermarkets and forests to work on our independence, road safety and community work alongside our friends. As well as all of the work we do in Olive class, we do like having lots of fun whether that’s riding the bikes on the bike track, imagining we are on a roller coaster in the sensory room or playing with all of our friends outside or in soft play.

 

This is term, Olive class also got a very special treat by being able to visit CAFT on a two day residential which we all loved. We got to explore the farm and all of its animals as well as have fun in their art room, sensory room, games room with PS4 and Xbox 🙂 as well as burn all our energy off in their park and gigantic sports hall equipped with their very own inflatable slide.
