Welcome to Otters class page.
We have 8 pupils this year who are supported with their learning from Teacher Tapawi and teaching assistants; Sharon, Amanda, Katie and Samantha.
In our class we follow a thematic approach to the National Curriculum. We will be following an Extended IMPACTS curriculum that is tailored to suit the needs of each individual in the class. Each day we will also have a series of sensory circuit activities to help our pupils integrate and engage in their learning sometimes in group sessions and some 1:1 learning taking place each day. We have access to the key stage 2 playground and have a lovely outside space with lots of resources to help the children learn. All pupils use individual timetables so that they understand their routine and expectations for the day.
We provide pupils with a purposeful, fun and engaging learning environment where we encourage pupils to develop their independence and collaborative skills. Otters class uses total communication where we combine speech, symbols and signing.
