Firefly Class Mixed Years

Welcome to Firefly Class


In Firefly Class we work towards greater independence and developing social skills alongside fulfilling our educational targets. We love to spend lots of time out of the classroom learning about the world around us including visiting local parks and shops.  As well as the usual literacy and numeracy, our days consist of sensory circuits to focus our mind and bodies, workboxes for independent learning and yoga . We also develop our attention skills using Attention Autism consisting of Kate's famous bucket of toys and activities in 20 minute sessions. Alongside these activities we also take part in weekly cooking, forest school and trips out.

This term we are looking at 'Growth', here are some of the activities we will be doing:

  • Planting beans and seeing what they need to grow
  • Cooking and preparing vegetables
  • Visit to the farmers market
  • Visit to a garden centre
  • Vegetable printing
  • Weight and measurement

 

Also throughout the term we will be continuing to practice telling the time, writing instructions as well as the usual sensory circuits and trips out in the community.

Term 4

 

We have enjoyed a fun packed term full of learning how to tell the time, recall the days of the week and months of the year. We also read the book 'The owl who was afraid of the dark'. Fireflies have enjoyed making lots of yummy things in cooking and they especially enjoyed making their gifts for mother's day :)
