Welcome to Red Class!
Red Class is made up of 6 boys who love to get messy and explore their environment. Rachel is our teacher and we have two amazing teaching assistants called Kate and Tom to help us with our learning.
We follow a pre-formal curriculum and use the Engagement Model, which focuses on us developing our skills of exploration, realisation, anticipation, persistence and initiation. We practice this through a range of multi-sensory and play based learning activities, which we often repeat in order to develop familiarity.
Our curriculum is individualised according to each of the children's needs and includes a range of group sessions, such as Attention Autism, Sensory Story and Sensology, and individual adult led activities. These help us to develop our social communication and emotional regulation.
This page will be regularly updated with all of the lovely activities we get up to in school.
Our first topic for the Autumn term is 'It's a Kind of Magic'.
We enjoyed different sensory stories including 'A Spooky Brew' and 'In the Witches Kitchen' where we explored using all of our senses, everything witchcraft and magical themed. This included edible frog eyes, magical potions, hats, broomsticks, wonderful smells and interesting tastes. We enjoyed creating magical themed art and cookery; painting with broomsticks, making pumpkin cookies, unicorn cakes and sensory cauldrons. We took part in lots of spooky sensory play using slime, sparkles, glitter and potions!
Our Topic for Spring Term is 'Around the World in 80 Days'. In Spring 1 we explored China and France.
