Yellow Frogs 2019-2020
Dear Parents and Carers,
As many of you are at home now due to the outbreak, please find below a list of home learning suggestions. This is in no way a 'to do list' as we know you will have loads of great ideas at home already. Please do not feel that you must do these activities, do whatever you feel is best for you and your family at this very challenging time.
We hope that these activities are useful and we would love to see photographs and to hear how you are getting on via our Evidence for Learning app!
Hopefully the weather will remain beautiful so the children can play outside as much as possible. As long as we are all adhering to the social distancing guidelines any outdoor time is great!
Please stay safe and take care, we know how challenging this time is to everyone. We look forward to this all being over and seeing you all once again.
If you need any advice please do not hesitate to contact me via the Yellow Frogs E-mail address.
Yellow Frogs Team
Spring Term 2020
We have all settled back into school very well after our Christmas break. We have started our new topic 'Our Growing World' During this half term we will be focusing and having lots of fun learning about Australia, Spain/Mexico, France and Italy. We will be continuing with our Educational Visits, P.E, Swimming and Rebound Therapy.
The past couple of weeks we have been having lots of fun in sensory P.E exploring different ways in which we can travel on the equipment. We used our bodies to slide along a bench, used the body board weave/drive around cones and used our bodies to be a bowling ball and knock down the skittles. We really enjoyed it. We also had the other sensory equipment to use, engaging in our sensory diets. Some of us also worked with Nic during the session working on our MOVE targets.

This week in topic we began to learn all about ourselves, we played hairdressers with the dolls, washing and brushing their hair. We had lots of fun doing this.
