Sunflower class is a class of nine students. We follow a functional skills curriculum with all lessons differentiated to meet individual needs and abilities. Our students follow a visual timetable, which we refer to each morning after singing our morning song which prepares us for the day ahead. We practise Signalong signs each morning which can be led by the students.
We support and encourage independence, learning through exploration and lots of fun in practical lessons. One of our focus points is teaching life skills; students take responsibility for different jobs in class on a daily basis.
We take part in weekly speech and language sessions where we work on developing our communication, skills, playing games and turn taking.
Occupational therapy session are another favourite for our class; they love all the different fine and gross motor skill activities
Rebound therapy is great fun they enjoy bouncing and learning new techniques on the trampoline and exploring the soft play equipment navigating around different obstacles.
Some students follow a physio programme that has been written by the physiotherapists, they work on their individual programmes throughout the week.
We love to welcome new people to our class to show all the fantastic work we are doing and the fun we have.
