Welcome to the Chimes Class page.
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 regular day trips. Last year we enjoyed a day at the Winchester Science Park, a trip to a Christmas Grotto and a visit to a forest to name just a few!
