Welcome to Fern Class


We are a key stage 1, Connections Pathway class, we are based at Hawthorns Wildbank Provision.  We learn through interactive, exciting sessions such as attention autism sessions, communication sessions and early learning sessions! We work in a highly sensory considerate environment.  We use the SCERTS framework to support pupils to develop their social communication and emotional regulation.  Our key priorities are supporting pupils to use their communication for a range of social purposes, we also focus on increasing the pupil’s ability to emotionally regulate throughout the day. We have sensory equipment available throughout the day to support our pupils to remain regulated as well as the use of a sensory room at Wild Bank!  We support our children to use transactional supports by having them readily available in the environment to request toys, and during snack time and communication sessions to request preferred foods and resources.


The Adults in Fern Class are:


 Name  Position
 Miss N. Browne  Class Teacher
 Mrs V. Lever  Teaching Assistant
Miss C. Davies  Teaching Assistant


As well as developing our communication and regulation skills, we also cover a wide range of exciting topics to expand our interests in the world around us. Fern class like to learn about the seasons and various celebrations going on throughout the year, we also cover a variety of interest-based topics which are personalised to the learners currently in the class. All sessions are hands on and engaging to ensure pupils develop a love for learning.  Each session is differentiated to meet the needs of individual children to ensure learning is meaning and purposeful to everyone.

Here are the topics we will cover this year:
