Welcome to Rose Class


We are a key stage 1, Communications Pathway class at Hawthorns School. We love to learn in a highly structured and sensory considerate environment.
We use the SCERTS framework to support the development of our social communication and emotional regulation.

The Adults in Rose Class are:

 Name  Position
 Miss O. Simms  Class Teacher
 Miss C. Henderson  Teaching Assistant
 Mrs K. Hill  Teaching Assistant
 Miss L.J. Lee  Teaching Assistant


As well as developing our communication and regulation skills, we work on developing our behaviours for learning such as developing our shared attention and play skills.  We also explore early number, phonics and writing. We learn through play, 1-1 and group sessions.  Each session is differentiated to the individual child just ensure learning is meaning and purposeful to all.


Here are the topics we will cover this year:

Autumn Term 1 Autumn Term 2 Spring Term 1 Spring Term 2 Summer Term 1 Summer Term 2
Me and My senses All the colours of the rainbow Once Upon a Time… Transport – All aboard/Blast off!

Our first topic is ‘Me and My senses’ – we will be getting to know each other and developing some early behaviours for learning. We will also be exploring lots of different sensory experiences using all our senses in our play, attention and communication sessions!


Here is our weekly timetable
