In Poppy Class we have 12 children that have a range of SLD and ASD. Poppy Class has a mixture of Nursery and Reception aged pupils.
We follow the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and adapt it to the individual needs of each child, as well as incorporating the Brooklands Red curriculum.
At this early developmental stage of the children’s learning, it is important to nurture their play, preferences and choices. We use a range of communication methods such as verbal communication, Symbols, Object of Reference, Eye Gaze and Makaton signing.
Within Poppy Class we are settling children into a new learning environment. Staff nurture and facilitate the child’s desire to learn through play. Throughout the day there are lots of opportunities for short attention and listening group activities that promote; social enjoyment, creativity, engagement and anticipation. We incorporate lots of sensory exploration, sensory stories and songs within our day. We also enjoys a prominent routine with many free play opportunities.
We have 1 teacher, 1 Lead TA, 4 TA's and 2 Midday supervisors
