Hello from the Ash class team!

In Ash class we follow an informal curriculum. In MER 2 we will be following our weekly immersive themes and finding out our likes and dislikes and working on our individual PLIs.  We communicate using communication boards, simple sentences, and PECs. We use Makaton signing too! We do regular call and response, attention autism and sensory story sessions to support ash class pupils with their communication. Our choosing box session supports us with our commutation skills to. We choose what we would like to play with which is supported by communication boards. We will also be visiting local parks and soft play; we practice transitions by going to different places in school too. We will be accessing the sensory circuits here at school and having sessions such as Yoga and hand massage in class


If you require any communication board or visual aids to use at home with your child please email ash@ or simply send us a message on Boop.
