It’s been great to have all of Frog Class back in school after the holidays. We have really enjoyed seeing each other and we have all worked hard on getting back into our classroom routine.

We have been really focusing on extending the duration we work for, and we are all sitting for much longer during our lessons. We have enjoyed practicing our over arm throwing in P.E, scooping skills in baking, a visit to the library and practicing blowing in soapy water!!

Frog of the week 

Our Frog of the week is Logan!! Logan has done really well following verbal instructions this week and is sitting for longer each time he does his work 🙂🙂

We have been loving

Bubbles!! Bubbles can be used for so many different reasons and we love them in Frog Class. This is why we have been practicing blowing, so we can blow our own bubbles! 🙂
