Welcome to Jaguar Class
Jaguar Class is a class for children who have a diagnosis of Autism and are aged between 6 years and 9 years old.
The children will be encouraged to develop their communication skills through the use of sign, symbols, Picture Exchange Communication System and speech throughout the year.
The children will take part in various activities in the community such as visiting local shops and cafes, parks. We also swim each week at Millhouse swimming pool.
Children are encouraged in class to turn take and take part in class activities.
Our topic this term is Entertainment.
Children take part in class activities, one to one work with an adult in class and then complete their workbox activity following the TEACCH approach to consolidate their skills and learning.
Each child follows a personalised path building on their skills and learning new skills through small steps and repetition.
The class staff are
Janis Moore Class Teacher
Allison, Chloe and Jo M are the Teaching Assistants.
