Welcome to P1! Here in P1S we have created a supportive and nurturing environment where we build positive relationships. We enjoy many activities in P1S such as; Attention Autism, structured topic/seasonal themed play, music and movement, outdoor learning, messy play, art and crafts and circle time activities. In our one to one time, our literacy/numeracy/communication focus is individual to each child’s needs and abilities. Our room is set up with a home corner which includes a book and comfy area, a sensory tile space, a black out tent for space and regulation, our class visual schedule and interactive whiteboard. Our structured play varies each week according to our topic and there is a focus on construction, small world, sensory, number/literacy, sand/water and fine motor activities. We look forward to greeting you in P1 J
We all loved the snow at the start of the month, what a perfect start back to school! Some of us had never seen real life snow before, it was so exciting. We enjoyed lots of new year activities including winter attention bucket, arts and crafts, senseology, going to the Walled Garden play park on the "Wednesday Bus" and outdoor learning in the sensory garden.
We had a holly jolly festive December! We loved the Santa day where we got to make up reinderr food, jump inside a snow globe and meet Santa!! We loved making winter arts and crafts to bring home including our own salt dough star ornaments for our tree at home.
We enjoyed Ray Bubbles coming to school to put on a bubble show, it was amazing! We had Children In Need Day where we enjoyed Pudsey themed senseology, we made sun catcher Autumn leaves, visited the Lighthouse and had a wonderful time in the PE hall for 'RunPudsey' activities.
What a jam packed month! We have enjoyed lots of Halloween and firework painting arts and crafts, autumn and Halloween themed sensory stories; "A Hairy Scary Castle" auditory story and an interactive board story "Academy of Witches and Wizards". Autumn and 'monster' sensology sessions have been a big hit. We took a lovely autumn walk in Mount Stewart and finished off the month with a disco with all our P1 and P2 friends.
A great first month in P1, we have taken walks in our local community, explored sensory play and enjoyed our first sessions of Sensology and Attention Autism.
