Welcome to the Triangle Class!
Triangle Class is within the lower school at Icknield. We are set up using the TEACCH strategy to meet the needs of pupils who require a structured style to learning. Our daily timetable includes keeping key routines in place for our pupils.
In the mornings we cover Physical activities including sensory programmes for the pupils who need this, to ensure that our pupils are ready to learn.
Our Literacy and Numeracy is taught through class rotations. The children have timed sessions which are supported through musical cues to support rotation. The rotation has three stations, a teacher led station, for new learning at the pupils level, a group station, to support working with others and sensory activities including sensory stories and writing skills and an individual station, where children complete three TEACHH tasks that are known to the pupil to promote independence and allow the pupils to self-occupy with their learning.
We plan in sessions throughout the year to go out and about in the local community to support developing our independence skills. We use this time to learn about the dangers in different environments and key skills to support the children in staying safe. These visits include going to the shop, café, library and woodlands. During these visits students are supported by adults and key visuals are used to support the success of the outing.
