Welcome to Seahorse Class

What a fantastic start to the year we have had in Seahorse Class! This year Seahorse Class are a group of seven happy children, three girls and four boys who are all in Reception. We have all enjoyed getting to know each other.

Over the first weeks of term we have been learning to find our way to different parts of the school such as the exciting new playground, soft play and the sensory room.  We’ve been learning how to use symbols and objects of reference to support us to know where we are going.

The staff in Seahorse Class have been learning about our favourite toys and activities and helping us try new experiences.  We’ve been experimenting with different messy play textures using our hands and our feet. Lucy enjoyed exploring the foam.  We have also been learning to follow new routines and practising leaving our favourite activities to complete focussed tasks with the staff. Julia especially enjoyed posting the fish.

We have had a busy start to the term finding out about our class animal Seahorse and launching our topic ‘Spots, Stripes and Scales’.  We enjoyed searching for jungle animals. JJ used binoculars to spot the monkey and Rowan found the tiger. What a great start to the year we have had so far, we are looking forward to so much more!
