Lunch time Learning fun! September 2022

Staying for lunch at school for the first time can be a BIG deal for the children and families but working together we have been able to make this part of our day a time to be social and learn to be independent too!

We are managing so much: listening, answering questions, chatting, making choices, remembering routines and using physical skills to hold our trays and to cut our food to eat!

Lunch time at school is an important part of our learning day!

We are learning how to write letters

You might also hear about how we have been dancing VOLCANO’s ! This session is call  ‘Write Dance’ and we exercise our muscles so that we have strong arms, wrists and fingers ready to write.  Volcano dancing last week involved shaving foam!! This week it will involve hair conditioner and powder paint!  ( photos to be added!)
