Welcome to the Foxes

 

 

Foxes class is a specialist class for pupils with Multiple Sensory Impairment (MSI), Multiple Disabilities and Visual Impairment (MDVI) and Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD). We are taught by a qualified Teacher for Multi Sensory Impairment (QTMSI)  and three teaching assistants who support us throughout the school day.

 

We follow a multi sensory approach to the curriculum, and use specialised equipment to help us understand the world around us.

 

Our Targets are taken from Quest for Learning which takes a holistic view of learners by focusing on;

How each individual learns

Acknowledging different abilities and achievements

Learners preferred sensory and learning channels

Individual ways of processing information

Early Communication, Cognitive and Social skills that are the foundation of all future learning.

 

In Foxes class we use total communication strategies including

Daily signifiers to provide a better understanding of daily routines including daily; smell, sound and sensory colour bag.  

Objects cues and objects of reference

Sign, pictures, symbols and real objects

Communication aids, and technology help us to access learning and respond to the world around us.

 

Mobility and orientation is important to us and we all follow a mobility and orientation route around school using sensory cues and markers to help us better understand our surroundings.

 

 

General Information

We ask parents and carers to return the home / school diary each day, as this will enable the class teacher to provide comments and information about your child’s day in school.

 This plan sets out educational targets that your child is working on for the term.  Plans are updated each term and sent home.

 

Reading Books

All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books, sensory books and big books to support the learning styles and levels for each child. Every Thursday, your child will receive a new reading book. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories.

 

Homework

Some pupils will receive homework in English and Maths to support their learning. If your child is finding homework a challenge please come into school so we can discuss it together.

We kindly ask that you send in £2 each week. This contributes to cookery ingredients that we use each week, and snack.
