P1 McK/P Classroom
Welcome to P1!
We are delighted to welcome your child as they start their learning journey in Killard House School! We provide a caring and nurturing environment, where each child is valued and loved. We believe that every child is unique, and we provide an individual Early Year's Curriculum tailored to the specific needs of each child. This includes the use of a range of strategies and activities such as TACPAC, Sensology, Attention Autism, Messy Play, Outdoor Learning, Sensory Circuit, Music and Pet therapy. Through carefully planned play opportunities, each child is given the opportunity to experiment, explore, discover, imagine, create, and make sense of the world around them.
We aim to support and encourage communication skills (PECS, Makaton, visuals, verbal), social emotional skills, and life skills. We provide a safe and friendly environment to build positive relationships with adults and peers in the room. We look forward to welcoming you and to work alongside parents to help each child learn, have fun, and grow to reach their full potential in P1!
P1 McK/P have settled into Killard House brilliantly - we are so proud of you! We have all really enjoyed learning about Nursery Rhymes this month including 'Incy Wincy Spider', 'Miss Polly had a Dolly', 'Baa Baa Black Sheep' and 'Wheels on the Bus'. We have had lots of fun with topic related crafts, sensory play, cookery as well as enjoying exploring the different activities available in school such as Soft Play, Sensory Room and the outdoor playgrounds. A super start to the year P1!
We continued with our nursery rhyme topic before doing all things Autumn and Halloween. We have experienced so many of our favourite nursery rhymes through lots of lovely songs and play experiences. We have had so much fun cooking, crafting, dancing, and getting very messy. The cleaners were kept VERY busy in our room this month. In amongst all the fun we have been working really hard learning to spell our names and doing practical investigations of mathematical concepts. We ended a wonderful half term with our Halloween Bop! Everyone looked fabulous in their costumes!
P1 have really enjoyed exploring our new topic 'Fairy Tales'. We have been listening to the sensory stories 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears', 'Little Red Riding Hood', and 'The Gingerbread Man', as well as exploring the stories through sensory play! In our roleplay area, we have enjoyed making porridge in 'The Three Bears' house, having princess tea parties and going on a Gruffalo Hunt! Some of our fun November highlights also include 'puddle jumping', our Princess Pizza party and a visit from the Bubble Man to school!
