Welcome to Blue Class. We are a class of 8 children aged between 2 and 10 years old and have three members of staff.
Michele is the Teacher and Andrea and Lisa are our teaching Assistants. At lunchtime Debbie and Sue help us.
We follow a multi sensory based curriculum. We care for and teach our children with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD) at Blue Class using a nurturing, holistic and child-centred approach. The children follow their own individual curriculum in the areas of: Communication, Cognition, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
In Blue class we treat every child as an individual and provide learning and development activities to ensure they reach their full potential.
Our topic this term is Myths and Legends. Our sensory story is Robin Hood.
Children have targets set in these areas every term and work towards these in a number of ways. Children also engage in weekly sessions that give plenty of opportunities for child led learning and incidental achievements.
Sessions in our class include: sensory story, hydrotherapy, trampolining, MOVE session, ICT session (cause and effect), we also learn Braille letters and numbers this term. We have our Music based on Edwin E. Gordon Theory of Music Learning, Physio class that we do with Yellow, Red and Silver class together, Hand Class, Tac Time, Positive Eye Program, Atmospherics.
We take pride in providing the best life and learning experiences we can to recognise each child as an individual with their own strengths and needs. The provision at our class endeavours to encourage children to reach their true potential through focusing on the most purposeful and relevant key skills for children at a developmentally appropriate level
