Hi, we're Rowan. There are 10 pupils in the class. Jayne is our teacher and we have Amy, Donna, Chris and Louise as our teaching assistants. We range from Year 3-8 and follow the KS2 topics. Our topics this year are Pirates, Winter Wonderland, Under the Sea, Celebrations, At the Zoo and Castles and Knights.
We are working on improving our self-help skills and practice dressing skills and practical skills such as cleaning our teeth and washing our hands and faces. We also use a total communication approach and use objects, symbols, signing, photographs and simple language to help us understand what is happening around us and to communicate.
We engage in a range of sensory play which supports language development, communication, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills and social interaction.
