Welcome to the Foxes

Foxes Class

 

Foxes class is a class for pupils with Multiple Sensory Impairments (MSI) . We are taught by a qualified Teacher for visual impairment (QTVI)  and three teaching assistants who support us throughout the school day.

 

We follow a multi sensory curriculum and use specialist 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 they learn acknowledging their different abilities and achievements and taking into account of learners preferred sensory and learning channels and their way of processing information; focusing on early communication. cognitive and sensory skills that are the foundation of all future learning.

 

In Foxes class we follow a multi sensory curriculum and use our senses to engage and experience learning and the world around us. Daily signifiers are used to give us a better understanding of daily routines including daily; smell, sound and sensory colour bag. We also use Moon related to; phonics (read, write, Inc letters), topic related words and the names of people around us!. 

 

Foxes class also use communication aids, link switches and specialist ICT equipment 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.
