In Hedgehog Class we have an Informal Curriculum split into My Body, My Communication, My Community, My Care and Independence and My Thinking.
This curriculum allows us to tailor our timetable and activities to all the needs of our students. Thus enabling us to work closely with physios, OT and Speech and Language colleagues. Our weekly timetable takes into account the importance of sensory input and sensory engine programmes for each of our pupils, to ensure they are ready for learning.
Art, music and mathematics all come under the umbrella of My Thinking.
Learning to communicate, respond, interact, make choices and sensory stories all come under the umbrella of My Communication.
Experiencing the school community and the wider community is covered by My Community.
Whilst taking care of ourselves and being taken care of by others is done during My Care and Independence.
My Body sessions allow time for P.E., swimming, sensory engine activities, tacpac, sensology and intensive interaction. Throughout the day, students in Hedgehog Class will use a variety of equipment - home chairs, school chairs, postural management equipment, P-Pods and beanbags.
As always we will be following a very sensory curriculum adapted to suit our abilities and capabilities.
Music takes place Tuesday afternoon.
Swimming takes place on Thursday morning.
Food Tech takes place on a Monday afternoon.
PE takes place on Monday morning
