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 half term break! Can you believe we are now in the final half term of the school year?!
For the next 7 weeks we will be continuing with our Summer topic- Journeys. This time our journey will take us down the Rabbit Hole into Alice Wonderland!
We have a new Wonderland-themed Sensology workout, a topsy-turvy 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 some poems written by 'Alice in Wonderland' author Lewis Carroll such as 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat', 'The Walrus and the Carpenter' and 'The Crocodile' and we have a new sensory story; 'Curiouser and Curiouser.'
We will work on developing our fine and gross motor skills during our craft sessions by making pieces inspired by characters and scenery from the famous story which we will showcase for parents and carers at the coffee afternoon. Our cookery session recipes for this term include Queen of Hearts jam tarts, tea-cup cup cakes, 'Drink Me' summer punch and playing card pop tarts.
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.
This half term we are also very lucky as we will be working with the charity 'Jessie's Fund' on an exciting music project, culminating in a performance with other participating schools at Rowan Park. More information on this fantastic project will follow
