Welcome to the Squirrels class
Squirrels are a key stage 2 class and we follow an adapted curriculum with lots of sensory play and we follow a total communication approach using symbols, signing, switches and speech. We enjoy outdoor play and visiting our different rooms around school such as the computer suite, sensory rooms and the new library.
Home school diaries
We ask parents and carers to return home school diaries each day, as this will provide key information for staff and parents each day. If there are particular things you wish to speak to your teacher about please contact school.
Individual Educational Plans (IEPs)
This plan sets out educational targets that your child is working on for the term.There are tasks in the plan with activities you can do at home with your child. Plans are updated each term and sent home.
All children are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books and sensory books and big books to support the learning styles and levels for each child. Each week your child will recieve a new reading book. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories.
We kindly ask you to send in £2 each week.This contributes to snack and cookery ingredients we use each week.
Pupils have been developing skills in literacy this term. The theme this term was Town and Country. Pupils engaged in sensory activities with farm animals and tractors in sensory trays. Pupils developed reading skills looking at The Naughty Sheepdog story and matched key words from the text and developed writing skills overwriting words. Pupils have been studying electricity in science sessions and used balloons looking at static electricity and created electric circuits.
