Miss Moranska, Mr Martin, Mr McCormick and Mr Ahmed welcome you to Pelican class.
We are one of the KS2 groups in Treetops, and our approach to teaching and learning focuses on delivering a stimulating and exciting Creative Curriculum, to meet the needs of every member of the class. Our lessons are highly differentiated by making use of a wide range of individualised resources to make learning fun!
A collaborative approach to learning is achieved by working with a range of therapists, parents/carers, teachers, TA’s and other professionals, to set up individual targets and ensure that pupils are working on what is most important to them.
In order to support children’s learning, self-help skills and independence, Pelican class have a daily routine reinforced by a visual timetable and TEACCH. We also use a visual approach, individual workstations, a group area to learn, a quiet reading corner and the sensory room.
Each day the children complete maths and literacy tasks at their workstations in an organised and structured manner adapted according to their individual needs.
The children participate in many different activities including horse riding, swimming, social skills, speech therapy sessions and art therapy to help support and manage their learning and behaviour.
To improve the children’s social skills, promote friendships and develop a sense of whole school community, we spend time in a mainstream inclusion such as PE, school assemblies, and trips. Inclusion can differ according each child’s needs.
