Chimes Class

Welcome to Chimes Class!


We aim to provide the students with a relevant curriculum that is interesting, meaningful to their lives and most importantly fun!

The students learn best from the multi-sensory approaches we use and we aim for every student to achieve their individual best.

Our activities focus on looking, listening, touching, smelling and tasting!

Communication is a vital life-long skill learned whilst in the Chimes Class.

We are proud of all our students who learn to communicate so successfully through body language, gestures, facial expressions, eye pointing, vocalisations and using switches.

Another focus is good quality physio and hydrotherapy and we aim to engage the students in some kind of physiotherapy every day.

Getting out and about into the community is also important to us. We enjoy our weekly bus trips to the allotment, the garden centre and the library.

We also venture further afield on day trips.


Autumn Term 2022

The Chimes class has started this new term with the topic “It’s a Pirates Life!”  They have been very busy going on sensory story treasure hunts through the deep seas, sandy beaches, long grass and sticky quicksand to find the pirates’ treasure!    They have painted their own treasure maps and used their feet to leave a footprint map trail.  Art lessons have included making fish collages and numeracy work has involved singing Five Little Fish.
