Bluebirds Curriculum

 

Children in Bluebirds class follow a mixture of the pathway 1 curriculum and the pathway 2 curriculum.

All the children in Bluebirds follow individual timetables that are regularly reviewed and updated so that we can be sure we are meeting the children's needs as they develop. We utilise a range of different strategies in Bluebird class so that everybody learns in the way that suits their learning needs. 

 

Communication is at the heart of everything we do in Bluebirds and each child has a specific communication plan that enables them to progress in the way most suitable for them. We have a total communication environment and we use PECS, AAC, SCERTS and other communication strategies within our curriculum. 

 

We work on specific skills within the classroom following a curriculum that is multisensory and has a large emphasis on meeting children's sensory needs, prompting independence and fostering life skills. We then take these skills to different areas within our school environment and then off site. Off site learning is an important aspect of the Bluebird curriculum and we try to access the community wherever possible.

 

 

Below is some further information about strategies and frameworks we use in Bluebirds including an example individual timetable which may help you understand a rough structure to a Bluebird day.
