Sensory activities and Physio activities will be followed for some children. Our class book this term will be Paddington Bear by Michael Bond with a variety of reading, writing and sensory activities planned around this character and his adventures.

Every Monday we will be cooking, with an exciting range of dishes using different skills, tastes and textures planned to learn essential life skills. We will be cooking Chinese food and eating in a ‘restaurant’ decorated for Chinese New Year.
