The class teacher in Hedgehog Class Marwa Sewilam who is supported by a team of 5 wonderful teaching assistants, Jenna, Paul, Chloe, June and Tara.
In our classroom we support the children to work on their communication and social skills through independent learning, games sessions and regular opportunities for whole class and small group communication sessions. We also develop the children’s creativity and ability to focus by following an Attention Autism programme, which is an exciting daily group activity that helps the children to develop their communication as well as their curiosity to learn and take turns.
The children are encouraged to engage in independent learning and access directed learning tasks with 1:1 support. The children ate also supported to take part in group activities that help develop their ability to manage their emotions and learn to turn take as well as listen to each other. There is also a quiet/ sensory activity room which can be used by children who need physical activity to help them focus or a quiet space to help them self regulate. Our aim is to create an environment that empowers children, makes them feel safe and develops their fascination for learning!
