Indigo Class

Welcome to Indigo Class!

 

There are 6 children in Indigo Class. There are 3 girls and 3 boys.

We have 4 adults to help us learn.  In Indigo class we have very individualised learning programmes that predominantly focus on SCERTS. We have learning breaks throughout the day to help regulate us so that we can focus on our learning. We use lots of different communication strategies and those relevant to children with Autism including Attention Autism and TEACCH.

Indigo Class Timetable

Here is the theme planner for this term

w/e 21/3/19. This week we have continued with our weekly Friday visit to the school library, where we can share some books and chose one to take home. We have also completed some counting activities, and had our second session of music therapy with Kwaku, which we all love! The highlight has been our walk in the woods, to look for some different animals' houses, and to post our letter to Peter Rabbit. We all really enjoyed going out and would love to go back with our families! Here is the link to the National Trust website to tell you where it is https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/limpsfield-common/features/homes-for-woodland-creatures-on-limpsfield-common

w/e 12/3/19 This week we had our first session of Music Therapy. All the children were very engaged with the music, and they all had a turn at playing the guitar or the keyboard. We have worked hard at Sensory Circuits every morning, and are enjoying using our bodies in different ways to alert, organise or calm ourselves. On Tuesday, we went on the bus to Merstham library, where we shared some books and spent some time time playing with the toys there. We hope to be able to stay for longer next time. We have had fun playing with our new bubble machine, and the Elefun game. We worked very hard during our fine motor skills session, practicing posting things, sorting shapes, threading and screwing nuts onto bolts.

w/e 8/3/19 This week we have started listening to different types of music and using streamers and scarves to move in time to the music. We have explored a variety of tactile play. On Pancake Day, we had a great time making pancakes, mixing the batter and then eating the pancakes, choosing which topping we would like. We also used some cut out and magnetic letters to match up to our names. We have been building houses using different coloured blocks and had some fun with water! We investigated rough and smooth surfaces outside, using chalk and water.

week ending 1/3/19 As part of our Towns & Country topic, we went shopping to Morrisons for ingredients for Pancake Day next week. We also completed a sticking activity of a house, and played some ball games outside, following instructions given on a roll of a dice.
