Welcome to Holly Class
The curriculum is split into three key areas:
- My Communication
- My Thinking and Problem Solving
- My Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Our key priorities are providing a nurturing and stimulating learning environment, that allows students to access the curriculum through a total communication approach alongside enabling resources that scaffold learning.
We use the SEE-KS framework to inform our teaching which focusing on three key areas:
- Fostering Investment
- Fostering Independence
- Fostering Initiation
The Adults in Holly Class are:
|Miss A. White||Class Teacher|
|Miss S. Doherty||Teaching Assistant|
|Mrs D. McGeoch||Teaching Assistant|
In addition to the three key areas, we also cover a wide range of exciting topics to expand our interests in the world around us. Topics have a History, Geography or Science focus, each are taught as experiential learning opportunities that are hands on and engaging. Each session is differentiated to ensure all students can access the topic and is therefore meaningful and purposeful for them.
