Welcome to Sycamore’s class page
Sycamore Class Teacher
We all participate in daily communication activities. We start the day by identifying and talking about our feelings using our Lego Feelings Board. We also share news as a class. In all curriculum lessons the children are building their communication skills by working with teachers and each other. Some children work with our Speech and Language Therapist, Sophie Crilly. The work she does with them, and the targets set, are continued within class. Communication is such an important focus, alongside the learning, in Class Sycamore that the children earn bonus points for communicating well, whether it is their feelings or contributing to their learning.
All children in Class Sycamore have sensory experiences in a variety of ways. Some children have Sensory Diets which have been advised by an Occupational Therapist from Shine Therapy. These include Sensory Circuits, Rebound Therapy, Daily Mile and the use of specific sensory equipment. Within class all children use Sensory Trays and complete activities to develop their fine and gross motor skills. Each afternoon the children have a relaxation session to prepare and focus them for learning.
Physical Education & Development
For PE, Class Sycamore are taught by Harry our PE coach. They take part in a variety of games and learn the skills to play them. They also complete a Daily Mile. Children access the outdoor areas of school which includes the playground, trampolines and climbing frames. Our sensory activities also help to develop physical skills such as fine and gross motor skills.
