Beech Class

Beech class pupil’s benefit from a mixed range of approaches, including child centred approaches and hands on learning approaches. They require strong visual structures and order to their learning but also need to experience learning in different environments and with different people to ensure that their learning is generalised. Attention autism is used to develop attention to another’s agenda and to increase the time children can spend within a group setting. At present however their best learning occurs in a distraction free environment where they can have the individual attention of an adult.

Autumn term 2 – ‘Let’s Celebrate’

Our topic this half term is ‘Let’s Celebrate’. We will be exploring and discovering different celebrations across the world, such as Diwali, the Winter Festival in China, and of course Christmas!

Pupils in Beech are working across levels engagers, explorers and beginning to become discoverers.

Our pupils in Beech class will be exploring traditional stories related to these celebrations. They will also have opportunities to play with materials in order to explore and create Rangoli patterns, Mehndi patterns, rice balls, birthday cakes, etc.

As part of our RHE topic, we will be working together to gather information about favourite party games, party food, making decorations for the classroom to celebrate Christmas at the end of the term. We also will be looking at our emotions through the zones of regulation.

 

 

We cannot thank you enough for all the time and effort you have put into our son. You are amazing and we appreciate everything you have done for us as a family.
