Easter crafts in Star class

Star class have been enjoying partaking in Easter arts and crafts. Pupils have been developing their fine motor skills by cutting and sticking the resources to make Easter chicks. They also further developed independence skills by identifying and collecting resources they required and following basic step by step instructions.

Developing fine motor skills in Cookery:

Pupils in Rainbow class developed their fine motor skills such as grip, mixing and scooping through the act of making Easter cakes. The children looked at using utensils like spoons and mixing bowls, and developed their turn taking skills. This also supported their learning about Easter and its association with eggs. 

Easter activities in Comet class and Rainbow class

Comet class and Rainbow class enjoyed exploring a variety of Easter themed activities this week. We matched numerals to quantity eggs during maths play, fine motor work through egg painting and practising ‘Hop Little Bunnies’ in preparation for our school performance. 

Visit from the Easter bunny

At the end of term, pupils had a surprise visit from the Easter bunny. The Easter bunny visited each of the classes at Thornhill Park School's Portland site and delivered some chocolate treats. As you can tell, the children were very excited to see him!
