Senior 4 Termly Focus - Autumn Term 2019
Posted: Sep 24, 2019 by: charlottedowson on: Senior 4 Termly Focus
I would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome all the new students and staff in our class. We are very excited to have you all joining us, and looking forward to great things from all our students in the future.
This year we will continue to work within a sensory curriculum framework which allows us to plan creative and motivating sessions and individual learning programs for the students in order to advance their learning and meet their needs.
This academic year we will follow the school whole topic ‘’A night at the museum ‘’. The topic will work as the umbrella under which all other teaching is themed. Pupil’s daily timetable will comprise of individualised daily communication and cognition work based on their individual educational targets in all areas. This will also include Physical management and postural change wherever needed. We will also focus in improving personal and social development, self-help skills and confidence.
This term the students will engage in multi-sensory sessions built around the following stories such as ‘Lost in the museum’ and ‘Scary castle’ and ‘The toy museum’. These sessions will provide opportunities for sensory stimulation, engagement and exploration using all of the available senses — visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory (smell), gustatory (taste) vestibular (sense of balance, speed, and direction), proprioceptive (sense of body in space).
The students will engage messy play; create items for sensory displays such as dinosaurs, fossils, and planets. We will also make different snacks in the shape of dinosaurs, planets and stars during our cooking sessions.
Students will also access different learning environments such as sensory room in which we will project planets and dinosaur images and various themed items.
When the weather is good, most students will access the local community on walking trips to the local recreation areas, cafes and shops. We will also enjoy trips to the Street museum in Hull and Hornsea museum.
A busy and exciting year ahead for Senior 4 class
