Elm class are a PMLD class covering all six of the curriculum areas; My Communication,  My Thinking, My Emotional Wellbeing, My Physical Development, My Community and How My World Works.

During each session all pupils will be working towards individual targets based on Quest, P Scales, Educational Health Care Plans, CSDs and ASDAN.


ASDAN will be new to some of the pupils in Elm class this year. We will be working towards achieving credits in ‘New Horizons’ and ‘Personal Progress.’ The work done towards these credits will be integrated into our everyday sessions.

For ASDAN Personal Progress we will be working on Engaging with the world around you: People,' Engaging in new creative activities' and ‘Developing self awareness- all about me.' In support of these modules we will work on recognising what makes us individual and expressing our individuality, engaging with the people around us and we will be trying out new craft, musical and drama activities.


Welcome back from the Easter break! I hope you are feeling well resting and ready for the Summer term!


For the Summer we have a new topic- Journeys. To begin with, in Summer 1, we are going to take a journey into Space!

We have a new Space-themed Sensology workout, an out of this world new playlist for Dance massage and some new stories to get stuck into. During our story massage and shared reading sessions we will look at the poems 'Star Travelling', 'Space Countdown' and 'Walking on the Moon' and we have a new sensory story; 'Whatever Next?!' by Jill Murphy.

 We will work on developing our fine and gross motor skills during our craft sessions by making each of the planets for our wall display as well as some sensory craft sessions. Our cookery session recipes for this term include Intergalactic Ice-cream, Space Rock cakes, Galaxy popcorn bars and cheesy stars.

We will continue to join Beech class for music and Kin-ball sessions, take part in PE sessions with Beech and Hedgehog classes and enjoy our wonderful music sessions with Georgina. Each Friday will continue to publish our Elm Class Newspaper to keep you up to date on all that we have been doing during our busy week.
