Enjoyment and Achievement

Enjoyment and Achievement


What will I learn?


We will be supporting pupils to have moments where they feel successful and can engage in moments of enjoyment and achievement. This will be within pupil’s abilities and easily accessible recognising that when pupils have experienced trauma, their abilities to learn new concepts and be challenged is less. Pupils often use schemas of learning which they are familiar to explore when processing events in their lives and planned provision will focus on what is familiar.


For example:

  • Child initiated play that enables schematic exploration
  • Familiar structures in the day like Attention bucket?
  • Relaxation time
  • Independent learning
  • hello 
  • phonics and numeracy


What that may look like?


We will use familiar curriculum type sessions that pupils will be used to that provide children with experiences that feel like “the norm”. Using what we know about schematic learning and how children process, this will look like familiar structured sessions in pupils day and opportunities to engage in play opportunities. We will be providing enjoyable activities which provide children with “fun” so that they want to engage.

Sessions will be as follows:

  • Attention Bucket
  • Hello 
  • Sensory circuits
  • Curriculum sessions that provide familiar structures (like phonics, maths, guided reading)
  • Child initiated
  • ICT songs and learning on whiteboard where these are familiar
  • Outdoor play
  • Storytime

Learning in these sessions will link to previous and current topic learning or children’s key interests and motivators. Children may have missed out on many opportunities being at home that they are naturally exposed to at school like peer play, active opportunities and experiences which develop their cognition and learning and these will be built into each day to support children to have a broad range of opportunity, experience and fun.
