Welcome to Blue Frogs 2014-2015!
It has been busy in Blue Frogs.
The children of Blue Frogs have been working hard and have enjoyed lots of activities along our topic of ‘Hot or Not’.
We have been working on a sensory story called ‘Kofi and the Magic Shaker’, one of our new bag books. In the story a little boy called Kofi is helped by a mysterious spider to keep cool. The children have loved exploring the resources – some favouring the sound of the crickets, others the burst of magic air. Less so the big hairy spider though!
Sensory drama has involved a trip to Egypt and trip to Lapland. Thanks to Kate from Purple Frogs, we have had some brilliant videos and resources to work with. Blue Frogs have most enjoyed feeling the chilly fake snow and holding the reigns tight for a husky ride.
We have been using the new ‘Handypac’ that involves massage movements in time and in keeping with the nature of the music playing. Some of us have been so relaxed by the end of a session we’ve had a little snooze!
Blue Frogs have all been working hard. Lots of us spend time daily in our standing frames, others in walking frames and that’s without even mentioning our new physiotherapy programs and hydrotherapy!
Every week Blue Frogs love having rebound therapy. We have been working hard to anticipate and continue the bounce, respond to ready, steady, go prompts and hold a good position on the trampoline.
This term we have had a great time exploring plenty of warm and cold materials in keeping with our topic. Some of us took great delight in exploring textures, scents and flavours in our baking sessions. Later in the term we explored different types of ice.
We would love to hear your comments about Blue Frogs work.
