 Welcome to Toucan Class.

Toucan class is made up of 8 gorgeous children and five members of staff. Our teacher is Sarah and our teaching assistants are: Faye, Nicky, Niamh and Alisha. Our apprentice is Caitlin and our HLTA is Annette.

The children follow an adapted multi-sensory curriculum appropriate to their individual needs. Within school, we will follow the "Sparkle " pathway.

We follow the TEACCH approach at regular intervals throughout the day.

Important dates:-


Beginning of the new Spring term - Tuesday the 4th of January.


Our weekly  PE session will be on alternate  Fridays. Please send in a PE kit for the session. This should consist of; shorts, a T-shirt and gym shoes. We will keep the PE  kit in school and send it home every half-term.

Today, two donkeys came to visit us in our playground .We had only just been singing "Little Donkey" when they arrived! We went out to look at them.

No Pens Day-


Today was No Pens Day. This is something that takes place every year here at Springwell. It is an exciting day when we work collaboratively with our Speech and Language Assistant Cheryl who thinks of lots of interesting activities to complete.

Today, we completed a sensory walk outside. 

We took off our shoes and socks and splodged about in chopped tomatoes, pink ice, mushy peas and lots of other items that were the colours of the rainbow.

We were a bit wary at first but then we loved it!

We had very messy feet!


Wednesday the 17th of November-


This week is Anti-Bullying Week and the theme is "One Kind Word." We wore our odd socks today for assembly . Assembly was very different today as it took place outside. We had a lot of fun playing with children from other classes and their teachers. We also played with new and exciting games. Here are some pictures of us enjoying ourselves this morning.

Thursday the 4th of November-


Today, we have been swimming. We had lots of fun in the water today and all got very wet! 

Thursday the 7th of October-


Today Maisie, and her owner Val, came to visit us in Toucan class. We loved having them back in our classroom ! We have missed them very much. Everyone was very brave and had a very close look at Maisie. Everyone also  helped brush Maisie to keep her coat clean and shiny. Maisie was her usual relaxed self and had a little lie down in the class. 

Week beginning the 27th of September-

We have had another busy week this week in Toucans. On Wednesday we had a walk to the swings at Bishop Cuthbert. It was a bit windy but we had a brilliant time exploring the park and playing on all of the equipment.


Week beginning the 20th of September-

We have been very busy recently. We have been reading the story of "Elmer" and we have completed lots of activities around this story. We have made some elephants masks, we have sequenced the story and we have made milk carton elephants.

Look at our lovely Elmer elephants. They are walking outside to play!
