Scafell class is a class for pupils with Multiple Sensory Impairment (MSI). We follow a multi-sensory curriculum and use specialist equipment to help us understand the world around us. Our Targets are taken from B Squared Engagement Steps 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.We follow ASDAN Modules including; New Horizons, transition challenge and Towards independence modules.
In Scafell 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 use Moon Tactile Code related to; phonics (read, write, Inc letters), topic related words and the names of people around us! We also also use Canin On- Body Signing, Objects of Reference, 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. We regularly access the Hydrotherapy pool and take part in; PMLD P.E adapted sessions, Rebound Therapy, reflexology and regular light and dark room sessions to encourage our vision and engagement.

This half term, we have been learning about 'Well Being’ and we have worked hard exploring, engaging and responding to lots of fun learning experiences all about our 'Feelings' using music, art, sensory stories, P.E, and role play learning activities to express ourselves..
we have all took part exploring our senses including; touch, sound and smells.during sensory stories and Tacpac sessions in class and in our outside reading area. We individually explored the sensory resources with help from our teachers and we had great fun! Our favourite was the 'Hand Washing' song story, we all enjoyed working together and we responded to the story using musical instruments and precutional sounds to express how we were feelings?.
We have continued our 'well-Being' theme in Maths and took part in 'Healthy Schools' week. Exploring healthy foods usng our senses to respond to different smells, textures and flavours! can you tell if we like seat or sour?
