Red Class

Topic: Under the Sea and On the beach


This term we will have a Makaton  specialistjoining us on a Monday morning to deliver a communication session based around being under the sea. In our class communication sessions, we will be engaging in sensory stories linked to ‘On the beach’ and developing our knowledge and understanding of different stimuli. We will also be working on using yes and no switches within sessions.


In Cognition we will be developing our understanding of early numbers through number songs. We will be singing, “5 little seashells.” We will also be building our attention and engagement skills within our ‘bucket time’ activities, which will be themed around our topic. Within sessions, we will also be working on developing our understanding of cause and effect.

My World

Within our ‘My World’ sessions we will be developing our understanding of areas within our classroom and beginning to link these to pictures. We will then be extending this to areas around school, including outdoors.


This term we have music sessions delivered by DARTS.
