Summer Term: 2018-19
Ash class are exploring ‘The Jungle’ this term. We are using African instruments, and the pupils are creating their own rhythms on African drums. We are looking at animal characteristics, animal sounds and animal movement.
In Art we are creating a collaborative jungle collage and are making different jungle animals from a variety of media. Our sensory area within the class is jungle-themed and provides a setting for sensory massage and our sensory story ‘Walking in the Jungle’.
In ‘My Independence’ we are developing practical skills required for cooking and for hygiene. We will be exploring different fruits, vegetables and spices, and will be looking at different electrical equipment used in cooking.
We are also focusing on improving our awareness of others and are promoting physical well-being through yoga, swimming and PE.
Key Stage 4 pupils will be working on the ASDAN Transition Challenge programme. Key Stage 5 pupils will be working on the ASDAN Towards Independence programme.
Physical Education (PE)
Ash will be continuing their EQUALS scheme of work called ‘My Play and Leisure’ and will be exploring different equipment and body movements by completing a sensory circuit. This will involve the learners completing three different areas of the circuit (e.g. alerting our bodies, developing organisation skills and calming). Learners will also be exploring and joining in different physical games and activities.
In swimming, Ash will be exploring different body movements to music in the water. Learners will listen to the vocals of the music and feel the vibrations from different instruments and equipment in the pool.
