Welcome to Pine Class!
We are a group of 10-13 year olds. We are a creative and inquisitive bunch. We love everything messy, loud and colourful! There are six pupils in our class and we always have five or six staff members working with us as we have a varying degree of medical needs within our class. We go out into the community once a week to learn about our local community, the people within it and everyday life skills.
Each of us enjoys eating and cooking food, we can become very creative when cooking and baking! We can operate kitchen equipment using adaptive switches. Our favourite lessons take place in the sensory room where we can activate the technology around us with our switches and participate in sensory stories. We have hydrotherapy sessions twice a week where we get to relax and play with our friends in the pool. We also use this session to stretch and work hard to control our own movements. On Mondays we each have a turn on the trampoline for rebound therapy. Not only does this give us a physical work out, we also get to use our own voices and communication skills to communicate our enjoyment and what we want.
We have our own tailored PMLD curriculum and assessment which we follow that helps us to meet all of our learning needs.
