Welcome to Kingfishers class page, we are a mixed Year 1 and 2 class primarily for ASD and there are 11 of us in total!
Our Class teacher is Emily.
The other adults helping us in our class are:
Hannah – Teaching assistant
Nikki – Teaching assistant
Pauline – Teaching assistant
We are a very enthusiastic and inquisitive class who love learning through hands-on messy play activities. We are working really hard to make sure we are doing good listening throughout the day.
For Term 1, our overarching theme is ‘The World Around Me’ in which we are going to explore and share information about ourselves and our families. We are also going to begin exploring different occupations as we get further into the term, through child-led activities.
Whilst this is taking place, we are teaching through a recovery curriculum to ensure the children settle back into the school environment having had some time out of school. This is aimed at both recapping and embedding important skills, such as listening and following structured routines. With this will come a very multi-sensory and nurturing approach for individuals, with plenty of dancing, singing and structured play opportunities!
Within Kingfishers, we want to focus on promoting positive social interaction and emotional regulation through group activities, one to one interactions, circle time and engagement with feelings boards.
