We had great fun working with Holly Class, making fruit snails and caterpillars. We even sung our caterpillar songs as we were making them!
This week we have been learning how to set the table and make playdough food for some of our favourite teddy bears in the class. We have been enjoying rolling the dough and making cupcakes to feed to our friends.

P.E. / Gross Motor Activities
We had a great time during P.E., moving in different ways; jumping, crawling and rolling our way through different activities. We also learned the importance of cooling down after exercise and taking some time to relax.
It was great to see the children bring healthy options to school for lunch. A lot of fruit and healthy snacks. We are learning all about healthy eating this month so keep it up!

Toilet Training for Children with Autism & Special Needs
From learning new routines to knowing when it’s time to use the toilet, to being able to manipulate clothing, the potty training process can take many years for some children with autism to become experts.
Our workshop is carried out by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst and will provide parents & professionals with the fundamentals to help them put together a successful toilet plan for their child.
Tickets can be booked online: wwww.adamandfriends.ie/training/
