In Badgers, we are a mixed aged class of 10 pupils consisting of Reception and Year 1 aged pupils. We need support to meet our learning needs that are linked to communication, learning, social and emotional and global development delay, and difficulties. Some of us also have a diagnosis of Autism and other medical conditions. We are a very active class and enjoy being busy and able to access a range of activities.
We are supported by Miss Drake (our Class Teacher), Miss Davies and a team of 3 Teaching Assistants: Mrs Oakley, Miss Charlton and Miss Connigale. The role of the adults in our class is to support and develop our learning whilst also meeting our individual needs in the educational setting. Our classroom and learning environment is spacious and includes both indoor and outdoor provision. These areas enable us to work in whole group, small group and 1:1 situations. We have access to a wide range of learning resources and really enjoy the practical approach to learning and developing our skills which are observed regularly.
As we are in the early stages of our school and educational experiences, the adults that we work with use strategies and approaches outlined in our curriculum to develop our love for learning and build our knowledge and experiences of routines and ways to communicate. Our teachers have high expectations of us all and aim to ensure that we become the best that we can be ensuring we have the skills and knowledge we need to be able to achieve this. It is wonderful to see us grow, develop and achieve our targets and goals from both our learning curriculum, assessments and those outlined in our individual Education and Health Care Plans.
