Poppy Class

                            Welcome to our Poppy Class Page

There are 13 children within Poppy class.The children within Poppy class have complex needs and are aged between 2-6.


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 school '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 symbols, Object of Reference, Eye Gaze, Makaton and body signing.


Within Poppy class we are settling children into a new learning environment and staff nurture and facilitate the child’s desire to learn through play. Throughout the day there are 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 in Poppy class.


We have a high ratio of staff that support the learning, medical, sensory and therapy needs of the children. There is one Teacher, one HLTA, one LTA and five TA’s to support our children.
