Welcome to Bluebird Class
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!
We follow a mix of the pathway 1 and pathway 2 curriculum incorporating all elements in a multi-sensory way. Please see below for links to curriculum documents.
Pathway 2 - https://primarysite-prod-sorted.s3.amazonaws.com/whitfield-aspen-school/UploadedDocument/78322992455f4836baa228b5b945d4a9/pathway-2-curriculum-final-edit-pre-key-stage-standards-v1-copy.pdf
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.
The adults in Bluebird Class are:
Beth (Class Teacher)
Sophie, Paul, Gina, Elise, Imogen, Robyn, Sam, Danielle and Chloe
We are so looking forward to having all the children back in school!
As before we are splitting the group across two rooms and the children will have access to both the low arousal and larger activity room. We will be spending time in the sensory garden, forest school and the sensory playground and we hope we will be able to extend access to other areas of the school in time.
Our main focus in Term one will be well being and settling back into school. Some of the children will be coming into a new class and others may not have been back since March! We have lots in place to support the children in a successful transition back to school.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the class in September. I will be updating the page as we all settle into the new normal!
