Welcome to Grasshopper Class
Within Grasshopper class we have 6 children! We are based at the Wray Park Road Brooklands site. We have one full time teacher, one teacher who works two days a week and an LTA three days a week. We also have two TAs to help us learning.
We follow the Brooklands Green curriculum which you can read about on the "Green curriculum" page.
In Grasshoppers we are all using our own ways to communicate about what we are doing whether that is through speech, signing or using various visual communication aids both high and low tech. Our class is a fun and busy place to be! We are always exploring different things linked to our topic and hooks. Each day we start our day with sensory circuits and we have breaks throughout the day where we use sensory circuits to support our emotional regulation and supports our levels of alertness to enable us all to be ready for learning. In Grasshopper class our favourite sessions in the day are the irresistible inputs because we love all the different sensory approaches to learning.
We all feel really lucky to have regular slots in soft play, multi-sensory room, swimming pool, swing room, the library and in our beautiful sensory garden all of which are spaces that support us with our learning.
We are also really excited to say we have a block of house riding on Tuesday mornings during the Autumn term.
