Transport continues to be our main summer term topic in Silver Class. The children are enjoying the book the Wheels on the Bus.
We play with plenty of sensory soft toys to help with this learning. They make various sounds that we can hear in the story. The children enjoy pressing the buttons and hearing the bus beep, or the baby cry.
Makaton signs are also used. The children are introduced one by one to some of the signs for each character in the story.
We are also exploring other forms of transport. These include boats, planes and trains. We’re helping the children to understand how each different form of transport is used. We are making the connection between the sea for a boat, and the air for a plane.
A final transport activity in Silver Class has seen the children solve some puzzles. They have enjoyed matching the correct shapes on the puzzle board.
