In Cherry class we follow the SCERTS framework, focusing on Social Communication and Emotional Regulation. Our curriculum includes independent learning, speaking and listening, Attention Autism and play skills. We also have individual activities for number, phonics, reading and writing.

We start each day with sensory time. In our class we have lots of different sensory equipment available including a swing, hammock, exercise balls and a trampoline that the children can access throughout the day.

Our timetable:

This half term we will be continuing our topic all about animals. For the first few weeks we will be learning about different minibeasts.
