Gold Class Polar Bear Book and Introduction to PECS

Gold Class have started to read Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? Our learning activities for the rest of the half term are based around this book.

Much of this learning will involve sensory play. Sand and water trays have been set up with some of the animals in the story inside to explore.

Our key learning words can also be found in the book. Each area of our classroom now has appropriate words placed on the wall alongside some of the practical activities. We are using our phonics skills to recreate some animal sounds.

The children are also practicing their PECS skills each day. The PECS cards are used to help the children with their communication with adults. Requests are made for different snacks, or if a class member needs to visit the toilet.
