Welcome to Apple class

Children: 6 boys

Staff: Rachel, Charlene, Nicole and Danielle

 

We are a very busy class with lots of big personalities! We follow a play based curriculum that develops our early learning skills and promotes social interaction, communication and independence.

We love to learn and play in lots of places; we enjoy swimming, Rebound, outdoor play, going out on the mini bus and also for local walks in the community. We learn in many ways too and we use total communication, intensive interaction, sensory stories, and adult and child-led play to engage us in a wide range of activities and provide meaningful opportunities for us to develop our skills. 

 

 

Autumn Term 2020

Apple Class have settled really well into the new school year and they are building relationships with staff and peers. Here are some pictures of us with our favourite activities.

 

We have been focusing on developing communication skills using PECS, chat boards, photos, objects of reference and symbols to communicate our wants and needs and to aid our understanding. It has been lovely to see the children’s communication and language skills develop so well as they grow in confidence in their abilities.

 

 

 

Our favourite thing to do in Apple class is to play! We love to play inside and out with lots of different toys and items and we learn so much through exploration, engagement and interaction with adults and our peers. Some times it gets rather messy!
