Our trip to Stanley Shop. We all walked to the shop remembering our Green Cross Code. We talked about what kinds of food we would like to buy at the shop ready for our picnic on Friday, such as cake and crisps. We looked at the price off food and worked out how much it would cost for our picnic items. We then worked out our change and walked back to school deciding on the games we might play on Friday.
Feelings and Emotions Week
We have looked at a number of Ginger Bear pictures showing his feelings and emotions. These could be happy, sad, upset, angry, shocked, confused and excited. As a group we discussed these and the children gave some amazing words to describe these. We then talked about our own feelings and emotions and why we feel this way. We then went on to discuss how we can deal with these feelings. So, if we get really upset and angry, we can STOP! THINK! and decide the next step (saying sorry). They also took home their emotions and feelings fans to use at home.
We have been doing some amazing activities during our sessions in Ginger Group. We have been looking at -
Sequencing - What order do we do things in the morning? What comes first? What comes next? (First, Next and Last.)
Routines - What is the school day like? What does my timetable look like? What lessons do I do on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday?
Days of the week - Learning the days of the week, putting them in the correct order and spelling them. We looked at key words including yesterday, tomorrow and next week.
Role Play - We acted out our routine when coming into school and getting ready for home time.
Take a look at the amazing photos from our sessions.
Time to Talk - Ginger Bear Group!
So many think that language is simply the ability to speak ; however, language is a complex task that involves many processes including: memory, reasoning, organisation, concept and syntactical development.
This is how we develop these skills:
We love our time to sit and talk;
We watch Ginger Bear like a hawk,
He shares his stories and we shares ours.
We learn to have amazing listening powers.
We learn to ask questions and answer them too.
We learn poems, sequence stories - we do so much more, it's true!
We share our interests, feelings and dreams.
We are Ginger Bear's super talented TEAM.
