Welcome to Octopus class

What a fantastic start to the year we have had in Octopus Class. This year Octopus Class are a group of five boys who are all starting Reception.  We are all enjoying getting to know each other.

Over the first weeks of term we have been exploring all the new toys and seeing how they work; Jasper has especially loved the toy sink filled with water.  We have been using symbols and objects of reference to support us in getting around school and we have really enjoyed going to our new playground, some of us love it so much we don’t want to leave! We have also started our topic ‘Spots, Stripes and Scales’.  Octopus Class have been busy printing with paints and sponges to make snakes; Yunus did this all by himself.

We have also been learning to follow new routines and practising leaving our favourite activities to complete focussed tasks with the staff. We are working so hard and celebrating with our chosen rewards such as being outside playing with water or being pulled along in the wagon; Mathuran especially enjoys this!  We can’t believe how much fun we have had already, it’s going to be a wonderful year!
