This half term, our topic is ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’ so we will be doing lots and lots of movement, floor work and getting on the trampoline as much as possible! We will also be pairing up with Mars Class every week to work on our communication as well as our physical goals.
We’re already working hard on our targets with our new therapy team who will be popping in to help all the staff learn all the integrated therapy programs.
We are still swimming on Fridays and are excited to welcome our new cover teacher Kathy who will be in class on Wednesday mornings.
Please do keep in touch via the home/school books or email me. Please be aware that if your communication is urgent or needs attention in the morning then the home/school book is the best form of communication in the first instance. Teachers will check there emails and respond after school between 3.30-6pm
We’ve had an exciting Spring Term exploring the sights and sounds of the circus including a sensory story based on ‘If I ran the circus’ by Dr Seuss. This half term, we went on a trip to Linden Lodge School to take part in their ‘elements festival’ where we got to play games and join in with lots of live music and movement.
We continue to love our swimming sessions on Friday mornings and our regularly work with our team of therapists.
We are a Key Stage 2 class of 8 pupils aged 7-11. We follow a sensory curriculum and provide everyone with plenty of opportunity for 1 to 1 work with an adult on child-specific goals. We also have whole-class lessons focussing on communication, physical development and cognition.
Saturn Class have been exploring different holidays this half term. We’ve especially enjoyed our sensory story ‘Gordon’s Great Escape’ and all the fireworks and lights at the end.
Half the class go swimming every week while the others enjoy working with our Physiotherapy team.
