Fun in Drum Class!
Drum Class is a fun and friendly class. We follow the Early Years Curriculum and have an exciting time doing so. Our seven main learning areas are:
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
Having time to play in Early Years is incredibly important to all of us and provides a wealth of learning opportunities too. This can include children learning to play with toys appropriately, playing alongside or together and learning to take turns and co-operate. Most of our learning happens through play! Activities are differentiated to meet the needs and learning styles of individual pupils, including meeting physical and sensory needs each day.
We also have a big focus on communication, using objects of reference, gesture, signs and symbols (including PECS) to provide a total communication approach as we work out which methods work best for each child.
We have a fantastic outdoor learning environment just for Drum Class which we use throughout the day, come rain or shine! We work hard on being as independent as possible in all areas and putting on appropriate clothing is part of this. We go out in the community, experiencing shops, cafes, local parks and other places of interest. In school we love to use the Sensory Room, Soft Play, Messy area and Cooking room.
Each child in Drum Class is a unique individual and we love sharing in their learning journey, alongside their parents.
