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:

 Name  Position
 Miss A. White  Class Teacher
 Mrs D. McGeoch  Teaching Assistant
 Mrs A. Fahim  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.

Here are the topics we will cover this year:
