Mulberry

We are Mulberry class;  this MER  we are focusing on building positive relationships and learning more about how to access places in the community. We will be visiting places like Petersham Community Centre where we will be having breakfast with members of the community; local supermarkets to shop for our own breakfast and cooking ingredients, local cafes to have make choices and order for ourselves and we will also be spending time at local parks and farms to experience enriching activities and participate in sport and games. Our PE sessions are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays; please ensure you send a named PE kit in for those days (including suitable footwear). In school we are joining in lots of call and response and narrative sessions in order to develop our functional communication, narrative and recall skills.   

Summary for class over the next 10 weeks include theme of following one, trips planned reminders i.e sub cream or anything that needs to be sent in and then some of the kinds of activities you will be covering  

Communication:  

 

Please encourage your child to seek help when in a shop or café and choose and order their own food. We are encouraging recall through story telling (narrative) so please ask your child what they have been doing today at school.  

Friends relationships and community  

 

We want to learn more about ourselves; our likes and dislikes and what makes us happy/sad. We will be talking about our family and friends and would love to share pictures and stories with our classmates. Please send in any pictures you are happy for them to share. 

Independent living 

 

Road safety and identifying safe places to cross is something we are focusing on. When you are out walking, please ask your child to help identify  a safe place and ask them how they know it is safe to cross. Aswell as making our own breakfasts every day, We are also going to be preparing our own meals, starting with boiling pasta and moving to oven-baked pasta dishes. Please practise chopping, peeling, boiling and baking simple things as  much as possible at home. 

Good health  

 

We are talking about how to keep ourselves clean and how to identify when we need a shower and to wash our hair. 

Employment  

 

We want our pupils to have as many experiences as possible so that they can make choices about what they like and dislike. Encourage your child to try something new or visit a new place and talk about how it made them feel.
