Welcome to Dolphins Class


Welcome to Dolphin's class page. Our teacher is Miss Burden and our lovely teaching assistants are Linda, Rachel, Rashia and Shilpi. Kirsty teaches us on Monday & Wednesdays and Thursday mornings.
On Wednesday morning we go swimming and need to remember to bring in our kits. On Thursday morning we have forest school and in the afternoon we have PE, please send your child in to school with appropriate clothing and a spare set of clothes to change into if the get wet or muddy.

In Dolphins, we do lots of sensory and practical learning. We work on our communication using PECS, symbol and intensive interaction. Every day, we have a session of TAC PAC which is a programme that links music and touch together in a structured session on sensory communication.  We also have a daily session of attention autism which aims to develop the children's attention skills. 
We love singing, and we are so lucky to have Jo Jingles every week. We do lots of work on our fine motor and self-help skills. But most importantly we have lots of fun!
