Life Skills Week 2 – Sensory Art and exploring our surroundings

This week in Life skills we wanted to brighten up the outside area which we are making our new sensory garden. Each child in Resourced Provision designed there own rock which will be there legacy until they leave Hoyland Springwood. They painted something onto the rock that represented who they are and things they like, so not one rock will be the same. After this we went out to explore what sounds we could hear in the garden and what we thought we could put in there to make it more relaxing for people. Even the rain didn’t put us off!

As part of Resourced Provision we try to look at things broader than the curriculum and help our children with life skills they will be using when they leave us. This week we focused on being able to take turns, share and accept when things might not go your way.

  

For the younger group we looked at how to start a conversation and end a conversation, things that some of us take for granted. They learnt different types of greetings and how to politely end a conversation.

Some of the rhino’s visited the kangaroos class to take part in a science senses experiment. On the list of things to try were green tea, ready salted crisps, lime, and chocolate. All the children tried everything and they actually found they like green tea!! They used all their senses to look, taste, touch and smell.

Lucas and lewis loved the feel of fresh lime

Mason loved ready salted crisps
