It has been a real pleasure to welcome some new Grasshoppers in to the class. We are all getting to know each other and what we like to do.
For some of you this might take a little longer which is why you are only staying for part of the session. Once you are feeling confident you can stay for longer and join in more of the fun!

We have had some fun activities for you all to explore including Pom poms in the sensory tray. You have enjoyed putting the Pom poms in to cones filling and emptying and dropping them from a height.
There was red,white and blue rice in the messy area with long clear tube’s. When we put rice in the tube and shake it side to side it sounds just like the rain ☔️
The train track on the floor proved to be a popular choice too. Tolerating our friends playing alongside us is a really good skill which we have seen this week.
There have also been some different inset puzzles on the table. The animal and alphabet puzzles are our favourites.

We have started to introduce our Attention Autism group times too. Some of us are able to sit in the group and some of us prefer to look from a distance. It is of our Grasshopper session and it won’t be too long before we all sit together. It is all part of being familiar with the routine.

It has been a busy couple of weeks getting to know how things work and we are always grateful to the parents who are also getting used to Lanterns ways! We really do appreciate your patience and understanding and realise that for you as parents it is also a new experience. We are privileged that you put your trust in us to do our very best for your children.

As the weather is now starting to turn and Autumn is upon us🍂 I would like to remind you to send in wellies and waterproofs. Please can you name all spare clothes as we do get duplicates!

We realise that drop off and pick up is often a brief handover and doesn’t always allow an opportunity for a catch up. Please do ask if you would like time to talk to your child’s key worker as we can arrange a separate time. There will be initial reviews for your child around half term and this will be an opportunity to discuss how your children have settled as well as answering any questions that you may have. The dates and times of the reviews will be arranged by our assistant SENDco Ellie.
