We have seven children in Bluebell Class, 6 boys and 1 girl. We follow the Brooklands Blue curriculum which you can read about on the "Blue curriculum" page.
We have a teacher, 1 LTA and 2 Teaching Assistants to help us to learn.
Each week we plan a themed “hook”. This is our short term planning which incorporates the overarching topic, the IPP targets of the class and makes use of the interests of the individual pupils. It is really important that we plan exciting and interesting activities and lessons in order to grab the attention of our children and sustain the learning. We always endeavour to offer our children an irresistible invitation to learn.
All staff use a range of total communication methods that will enhance pupil’s communication and language needs. These strategies may include: the use of simple and clear speech, intensive interaction, visual supports, objects of reference, Colourful Semantics, PECs, ALD boards and Makaton signing.
The children in Bluebell class are very sociable and are working hard on their social and independence skills. Our mornings are predominantly spent learning Phonics (following our Read, Write. Inc programme) and Maths. In the afternoons, we really enjoy Swimming (some of the children do this offsite), playing tennis at a local tennis club, developing our independent skills through Art, PSHE and exploring our creative skills.
We also love learning outdoors, morning mile, listening to our chapter book and dancing to GoNoodle.
