During the spring term our topic will be ‘Can I switch it on? We will be looking at a vast array of technology using cause and effect, switches and exploring Virtual Reality. We will be exploring new sensory experiences and have fun with some new mechanical toys!
We will be focusing on ‘The little Engine that Could’ as part of our communication and focus sessions, helping widen the pupils vocabulary and focus on the chronological events of the story. We will continue to work on sounds that we can recognise or make ourselves and where appropriate pupils will continue to progress through ‘Letters and Sounds’ phonics phase 1.
During our numeracy based sessions we will be focusing on the value of numbers and amounts, embedding our learning and expanding this within the context of our students learning environment. We will also be working on expanding our mathematical vocabulary where appropriate and linking this to the world around us.
We will continue to work on our alternative augmented communication developing our use of symbols, signs and spoken word. We will endeavour to improve our independence and self-help skills learning about the world that is relevant to us.
