Welcome to Banjo Class!
In Banjo class, we follow a semi-formal curriculum. Our learning is planned using a thematic approach so we link our learning to a topic where appropriate. We plan activities which are relevant and engaging for our students; we like to be active, and use practical resources to aid our learning.
Communication and Independence are key skills which are at the forefront of what we do. We encourage our students to be as independent as they can be in the classroom and in school by giving them responsibilities and teaching them the skills they need to be successful in this skill. We help children to communicate by providing the means they need such as using communication books and devices, the use of symbols or Makaton.
We start our day which a physical activity to wake our bodies up and get ready for learning. We enjoy daily phonics sessions as well as our Literacy and Maths sessions. We also take part in weekly PE, Cooking, Art, Music and Topic sessions. We also love to get out in our community, be this by visiting the local supermarket or a café for a bite to eat!
