In Shark class our team aim to make all learners feel safe, special, and happy. We adapt the curriculum to meet all learners needs and to make learning fun! We aim to make learning fun by incorporating play-based and creative learning into our timetable. Shark class has a communication friendly environment so that all children’s needs are met. We like to go on lots of trips to add context to our learning. We provide children with lots of opportunities to be independent, this helps to increase their confidence and self-esteem. We are looking forward to sharing some of our exciting learning opportunities with you.
Exciting moments from Shark will appear in this space, including any pictures or videos we take. Please keep checking in, in order to see what the learners have been up to!
This half term Shark class have enjoyed exploring the topic ‘Our Town’. As part of this topic learners have learnt about and visited the sport centre, Co-op, post box, visitors centre and the library. Shark class also learnt about the people who help us in our community, including our family and friends, the police, doctors and nurses and firefighters. Shark class especially enjoyed using role play to explore the vital role that they play in our community. During the last week of term, they had a visit from Rugby Fire Brigade, and they showed them around their truck and allowed them try on some of their protective clothing which helped to add context to our learning. Shark class finished of the topic by writing a leaflet about everything they have learnt about Rugby.
This half term Shark class have been learning all about poems in English. Learner's explored the poem ‘Bonfire Night’ by Sarah Fox through drama activities, they especially enjoyed using sensory resources to pretend to be a bonfire and fireworks.
