Tyne Class Activities
In Tyne class, we’ve been busy with lots of hands on activities this half term. Take a look at what we’ve been up to:
As our topic was ‘It’s a bug’s life’ we went outside, collected some bugs from their habitats and spent some time closely observing them in containers. The boys loved watching them creep and crawl around!
In maths, our pupils have been developing their counting skills and have really enjoyed doing this through bowling. They have been working on aiming the ball and counting how many they manage to knock down which has been lots of fun!
Recently we have been given some new play equipment in our yard which helps us to have fun, stay calm and concentrate better in class. The boys love the new roundabout and wobbly bowl and look forward to every playtime even more!
Every Monday we have access to the school minibus – we love our visits to local parks and are becoming much more confident when out in the community.
Sensory play is a Tyne class favourite as the boys love exploring different textures – especially if it is something tasty! Recently we have been exploring ice blocks containing toy bugs and making ‘mud and worms’ using chocolate Angel Delight and gummy snakes.
Our pupils needed to give the chocolate Angel Delight a good mix!
Our pupils loved exploring the glitter jelly – especially eating it!
Our pupils are always happy in the sensory room!
Our pupils enjoyed bringing the outside in with snow in our tuff tray
