Termly Focus - Spring Term 2022

Posted: Jan 4, 2022 by: charlottedowson on: Senior 4 Termly Focus

This term we will continue to work within a sensory curriculum framework which will allow us to plan creative and motivating sessions and individual learning programs for our students in order to advance their learning and meet their needs.

This academic term we will follow the school’s whole topic ‘From farm to fork’. This topic will work as an umbrella under which all other teaching is themed.

Pupil’s daily timetable will continue to comprise 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 on 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: Jack and the beanstalk, ‘Down at the farm’, ‘The enormous turnip’, ‘We are going on an egg hunt’, ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and ‘The night before Chinese new year’.

These sessions will provide opportunities for sensory stimulation, engagement and exploration using all our senses.

The students will engage in messy play, create items sensory display and collages around the farming topic. We will explore foods Chinese foods, spices and textures as part of our Humanities curriculum and create arts and crafts based on the ‘Chinese new year story’. We will go exploring and hunting for Easter eggs in the second part of the Spring term.

The students will engage in Music for interactions sessions’. They will make music by tapping on the sensory board and anticipate sounds and actions on it.

The students will also access different learning environment such as the sensory room, rebound and hydrotherapy pool. We will grow beans and flowers from seeds for our garden. We will also use farm produce to cook our snacks and explore various seeds and plants during our Food therapy/cooking sessions.

When the weather it is good most of our students will go for walks in parks, nature trails and opened spaced areas in our close community and visits around nearby farms and garden centre if possible.
