J4 have been very busy this half term working on our targets and looking at our transport topic. We have looked at all different types of transport that travel on the land, the sea and the air. During play we have been exploring sound, texture and colour with activities such as making tracks in paint and shaving foam. J4 have also been doing lots of sensory play this half term and have been doing sensory circuits with the bridge, trampoline, spots, rocker and sensory squares. The boys have enjoyed using their senses to explore the sensory activities. They have also engaged well in our role play area of a bus/train station and car garage. We are looking forward to our new farm and spring topic.

J4 have been looking at cows this week as part of our farm topic. Today we made butter. We poured cream into a tub and shook and shook until it turned into butter. We were all very excited to taste the butter on some toast.

J4 is a foundation stage class made up of 5 boys in year two. In our class we enjoy a play based approach to learning. We also have lots of opportunities to use the different resources within the school such as soft play, outdoor area and the sensory rooms. We take part in music, signing and sensory activities alongside Attention Autism, Tac Pac and body awareness to help us learn, develop new skills and meet our targets. We are very busy having fun learning to grow in J4.

J4 have been very busy and have all settled in very well. We have been practicing our social skills during break times and outings. We really enjoy music and singing our songs in circle time and we are working hard on are Makaton signs and actions. The boys have been able to experience different smells, colours and textures through our all about me and autumn topics. We all enjoy art and cookery in J4. The boys have also been practicing their skills in PE and developing their gross motor skills during soft play and outdoor play. Our sensory area in the classroom is well used and we are enjoying activities such as Tacpac and attention autism.
