In Elm class we work hard on our communication and physical skills within a topic based curriculum. Exploration of the world indoors and out are important to us as we practise our life skills. Our curriculum focus has a sensory base, which allows us to work on the needs of each individual in our class. We adapt areas of the curriculum so that learning is appropriate for our future needs. and bring the world into the classroom through a range of activities.
Every day we explore cause and effect, making an impact on our environment using technology, switches, iPads and Apps on the Interactive Whiteboard as well as more traditional activities.
We use Signalong, Canaan-Barrie sign, symbols and objects of reference to support our communication and use them to make choices and express our wishes throughout the day. We have a lot of fun during the day, in our dramas, stories and daily physio sessions as well as in the pool for hydro. We work and play together, building great relationships – come and see us!
