Willow Class has an age range from Year 1 to Year 3.
Lots of our activities include sensory and play-based learning, which our children love and are motivated by!
In Willow class, we use a range of speaking and listening activities to help with communication and to encourage our pupils to interact and respond with one another. This can include using symbols and signing.
Through using individual, small group and whole class teaching, our children’s abilities are catered for and we fit the curriculum and topics around them.
We continue to develop children’s reading and writing skills, with the class using phonics.
In Maths, we have a combination of Number and Shape/Measure activities each week to give the children a broad curriculum. We really enjoy getting hands-on and using practical activities to keep us moving throughout these lessons!
The children are encouraged to be as independent as possible and love being given jobs to do.
