All about Bluebirds
In Bluebird class we believe that forming meaningful, trusting and lasting relationships are the key to success.
We all participate in a sensory based curriculum following individual timetables in order to make progress in our own ways. Our classroom is known for being full of yoga balls, tunnels, tents, spinners and trampettes; this is because we are an 'alternative seating classroom'. We use this equipment to help us with our learning and it is good fun too!
Communication and independence are at the heart of all we do. We use a range of communication strategies including makaton, PECS, eye gaze and speech dependent on our individual needs. We try and take our learning off site as much as possible so that we can generalise our skills in lots of situations.
Belle the school dog is based in our classroom and we all love interacting with her!
This Term we have been learning about food :)
Some of us have been learning the story of 'The tiger who came to tea' and have taken part in a variety of sensory experiences related to the story. We even got to role-play going to the cafe and eating ice cream at the end!
We have been working on using all our senses to explore different foods and find the textures, smells, tastes and sights that are our favourites.
Some of us have been working really hard to increase our cooking skills and have really enjoyed making Fruit Salads this term.
