We are a class of 8 fantastic children and we have lots of lovely staff who help us. Rachel and Kayleigh share teaching the class between them, Rachel is in class on a Monday, Thursday and Friday and Kayleigh is in class on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Yvonne and Hannah help us learn and have fun every day and Sally also helps us at lunchtimes.
Lime class follow a play based curriculum which also prioritises sensory regulation and communication. Every day we have a session of Attention Autism and a sensory story to promote attention and engagement.
During the summer term Lime Class have been exploring the topics ’Food glorious food’ and ‘Wet, wet, wet’ and we've been learning new stories including ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and ‘The Rainbow Fish’ as well as making up our own stories about Lime class going on a picnic.
With the warmer weather we've been enjoying the great outdoors and have been on various trips as well as playing in lots of water (and even taking part in a couple of water fights!). Mark has been coming into class and helping us explore the guitar.
This has been a very busy half term which included World Book day and Science week. Initially some of us were learning at home, for some or all of the week, but thankfully we were all able to learn together in school towards the end of the half term. We spent a few weeks looking at The Very Hungry Caterpillar, made some lovely frames for Mother's Day and then learnt about Easter for a couple of weeks.
This half term we have enjoyed learning about farms and farm animals. Some children have been learning at home and some at school.
This half term we have been thinking about Celebrations, including Halloween, Bonfire night, Diwali and Christmas. We have done really well building our attention during our attention autism sessions and using the workstation for some independent activities. We have enjoyed doing some Judo and starting to use the pool.
Our first topic has been ourselves and we have looked particularly at faces. Each week we have looked at what our faces look like and what our eyes, noses, mouths and ears can do!
