Blossom

Welcome to Class Blossom’s Class page

Within class Blossom, we have 9 pupils and 4 adults; Mrs Ball and Miss Delaney (class teachers), Mrs Wafer (TA) and Miss Marsden (TA). We have a primary focus of Communication and Language, Sensory Integration, forming positive relationships and developing play skills. We enjoy interventions such as Attention Autism, Sensory Circle Time, Attention Autism, Intensive Interaction and Rebound Therapy. Our sensory rooms around school provide excellent spaces to relax and explore and our weekly soft play sessions are great for physical development.

We hope you enjoy reading about our learning journey through our class page.

Communication

We all participate in daily communication activities; these may be through our Attention Autism sessions, Intensive Interaction, 1:1 structured sessions or just through using the visual supports around our class, such as choose boards and visual timetables. These help the children to understand what is happening throughout the day and to communicate the things they want or need. We work closely with Sophie, our Speech and Language Therapist, to develop targets and activities to help all our pupils to progress.

Sensory

Our sensory programs are based upon lengthy observations of the children and we have worked closely with Shine Therapy to put in place a range of strategies to support children’s sensory integration and, in turn, their ability to attend to activities calmly throughout the day. These strategies involve the use of sensory circuits, relaxation activities and messy play. The children also benefit from a weekly trip to soft play which is always lots of fun as well as great sensory time.

Physical Education & Development

Pupils have access to many outdoor areas which have trampolines, climbing apparatus and sensory equipment to choose from. In class pupils work specifically on fine and gross motor skills through a variety of activities including cosmic yoga & sensory circuits. The pupils also access soft play and sensory swimming activities off site to ensure a broad and balanced curriculum is available with a variety of learning environments.
