Welcome to Swans Class
We are a happy class of 8 pupils between 6 and 8. We have 5 members of our class team: Hannah is our class teacher and we have 4 great teaching assistants: Jenny, Lucy, Emma and Megan. Everybody works together to help us to achieve our individual goals in all aspects of the school day.
We learn through the EYFS curriculum which supports us in the prime areas of learning – physical development, personal and social development and communication and language. The provision and experiences in class support us to gain the skills necessary to access other areas of the curriculum: expressive arts, literacy, maths and understanding of the world. There are plenty of opportunities for us to learn through practical play activities. Through play and exploration, both independently and alongside adults, we learn a whole range of skills across all curriculum areas.
We are very lucky to have a spacious classroom with separate rooms for messy play and snack as well as learning and focussed work. These facilities really enable the class team to plan and deliver to our individual needs. As well as this we have our own secure outside space with a variety of outdoor equipment.
During the school week we participate in a variety of activities including forest school, dough disco, cookery, music and art. We are also able to enjoy our PE sessions with Zac and forest school sessions with Adam. Each of us has our own Structured Support Plan which enables us to have a personalised curriculum to allow us to achieve our individual goals. We enjoy whole group sessions as well as working in smaller groups and individually within the class.
We have a busy year planned, where each term the Primary Department will have a different topic focus. This term we are focussing around the topic of ‘favourite stories’. We will be sharing stories such as ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ and ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ and using all our senses to experience new and exciting activities!
