CLASS 13 

2021 - 2022

December 2021

December was all about Christmas! In Class 13 we made lots of Christmas crafts, sang Christmas songs, enjoyed Christmas Tacpac and participated in the Daily Mile Santa Run. We continued to make our own snack each day and have started to make some choices about our favourite activities to do during relaxation. 

November 2021

In November we continued our topic of Autumn with themed stories like 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' and 'The Gruffalo'. We also celebrated important dates like Children in Need and Anti-Bullying Week. Our focus during this week was 'One Kind Word' and class 13 looked at the word 'super', completing some fun sensory art. We worked on our self-help and independence skills, making our own snack and tidying up after ourselves. 

October 2021

Throughout the month of October we explored our topics of Autumn and Halloween. We worked on our turn taking skills and had lots of opportunity to make choices during our school day. We also had a big birthday celebration which was lots of fun with balloons, party food and cake. 

September 2021

September has been a busy month in class 13. We've spent time settling back in to our new classroom and getting used to new routines. We've been working really hard on our self-help skills and enjoyed lots of learning through sensory activities including sensory art, tacpac, sensory cookery and sensology. We're excited for the rest of the year.

This month they have learned how to time travel with ‘Age Booth’ app on the iPad. Many are making their own books about projects of their choice, they’ve planned and cooked themselves a healthy meal. They’ve even learned how to divide a packet of crackers evenly amongst the group – it’s amazing how much they have learned just by doing things they lov
