IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES WHO ARE ISOLATING:
We will be creating some learning opportunities for your child using the online platform: Purple Mash and Education City. For those families without electronic gadgets (laptops, tablets etc) we will provide paper copies of any relevant worksheets for your child to complete whilst they are at home. Please contact us, via the class email address email@example.com, if you need any further information. Scroll down this page to find some useful links whilst staying at home.
We've had a very busy term getting to know new children and staff. The children have settled in really well and are enjoying the challenges of being a 'Firefly'. We have been working hard on transitions to different places independently both in school and off site. The children are learning about each other through our varied curriculum. We have enjoyed cooking sessions, learning about numbers and letters. Everyone has settled in really well and looking forward to getting started on Term 2 with a few more challenges!

Thank you to those parents who are using the login details already provided to keep the children entertained with some educational materials. It is not essential for the work to be completed but it will help in keeping the children in some kind of routine. Please do not hesitate to contact me via class email if you have any questions or require more work. I will be checking the children's progress online and be able to feedback on Purple mash and set new work accordingly.

In Firefly Class we work towards greater independence and developing social skills alongside fulfilling our educational targets. We love to spend lots of time out of the classroom learning about the world around us including visiting local parks and shops. As well as the usual literacy and numeracy, our days consist of sensory circuits to focus our mind and bodies, workboxes for independent learning and yoga . We also develop our attention skills using Attention Autism consisting of Kate's famous bucket of toys and activities in 20 minute sessions. Alongside these activities we also take part in weekly cooking, forest school and trips out.
