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 and completing ASDAN accreditations.


ASDAN is undertaken by pupils in Key Stage 3 and above and will be new to some of the pupils in Elm class this year. We will be working towards achieving credits and the work done towards these credits will be integrated into our everyday sessions.


Welcome To Elm Class!

We will continue to focus on developing our communication skills with help from familiar staff that know us well using musical cues, objects of reference, visuals, signing and use of spoken word.


To keep memories refreshed, here is a video of some of our regular sessions, made up of familiar songs that we play on a daily basis.



We will take part in Sensology sessions with a range of new resources, we will be moving along to a playlist of music of popular topic themed songs during dance massage and we will explore different instruments and ways to make sounds during our weekly music sessions. We will explore different topics throughout the year during our Sensory story and in sessions such as craft and cookery. We will put a twist on some familiar songs and number rhymes during parachute sessions and will explore weekly sensory bucket sessions too.

 We will work on developing our fine and gross motor skills as well as choice making during our craft sessions and within our cookery sessions will explore recipes with a different colours and smells linked in to our termly topic each week, such as Roman Honey Biscuits, Viking pancakes and berries and Olympic cupcakes.

We will be taking part in PE sessions and will continue to become more aware of our own bodies with the support of Everton in the community. We now publish our weekly newspaper each Friday, recapping our busy week.

We will be taking part in enrichment sessions such as Gymnastics, Apple of my eye and Music therapy.


  • Swimming will take place on a Wednesday morning. 
  • We request a contribution of £2 per week to go towards purchasing items for our sensory food sessions and snack where applicable. Any money should be sent into school in a clearly labelled envelope and can be paid on a weekly or half termly basis. Whenever possible we will send home what we have made for you to try and we welcome your feedback!
  • Please send in coats and rain covers daily. We will try to get out and about to explore our community as much as possible but we all know the Great British weather isn't always cooperative!
