Thank you Jaguar Class.

Autumn 2018: Healthy and Active Lives: This our topic web and shows the key skills we will be working on this term.

Attention Autism

 

Jaguar Class are following the Attention Autism programme  developed by Gina  Davies which helps develop attention and focus and then can be used to consolidate learning skills.

We are working on Stage 1 at the moment to develop attention and enthusiasm on adult -led activities.

Stage 1 is the bucket phase where the bucket has lots of exciting toys inside such as moving birds and the children watch the toys and share the staff's excitement.

 

Jaguar Class are really enjoying this activity and we will let you more about the programme as we progress through it.

 

If you want to know more there is a Facebook page Gina Davies Autism Centre which also has lots of good tips and ideas. There are also some videos on Youtube showing some of the stages.

 

 

Yoga

 

Every afternoon Jaguar Class take part in Yoga sessions. Our first video is below.

The video is a short one to start and we will build up to longer sessions over the year.
