Welcome to Green Class - Our group consists of eight children, seven boys and one girl, the Class Teacher, one Higher Level Teaching Assistant and two Teaching Assistants.
We communicate in various ways using different processes; verbally, high tech AAC devices, Makaton signing system, symbols and visual timetables.
Teaching and Learning
Our timetable consists of all core teaching and learning and assessment areas ensuring a broad and varied curriculum for our children to access and enjoy. The work we do enables the pupils to progress academically and pastorally allowing them to explore their potential to the fullest.
Please see our weekly timetable attached below for a more detailed look at what the children do each week.
Theme - 'Toys'
Toys are a fundamental part of the world of all children and allows them to learn how to develop their creativity and imagination, explore the world around them, enhance their fine and gross motor skills, build friendships, learn how to take turns and share. The opportunities for our children to grow and learn through this topic are limitless. This theme will be taught in a cross curricula way encompassing all of our core areas of teaching and learning.
Please see the theme overview below for a more detailed look at some of the activities the pupils will be participating in during this topic.
