Thames class is a class of 5 pupils and 3 staff.
We follow a multi sensory approach to the curriculum and use a variety of ASC friendly strategies such as Colourful Semantics, Social Stories, TEACCH and Attention Autism to enrich and support the teaching of our curriculum.
The American Dream
For the spring half term the pupils will develop their mapping skills to navigate their way through the USA exploring its geographical landscape. Along the way they will explore the different foods and cultures associated with the different states as well as looking at significant buildings and landmarks which make up the magnificent skylines. They will also travel back in time to explore the native Americans, their rituals and culture as well as developing their art and design skills to make totem poles and dream catchers.
General InformationWe 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. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with me
Individual Education Plan(IEP’s)
This plan sets out educational targets that your child is working on for the term. There is a section in the plan which provides parents and carers with activities or tasks you can do at home to support your child’s learning. Plans are updated each term and sent home.
As we are not sending reading books home at the moment due to COVID-19. I have enclosed a list of ideas where you can access a variety of both reading and audio books for you and your child to enjoy.
