Helen's Class

 

We are a class full of playful characters.  We love learning through sensory experiences and play.  We all dance to the beat of our own drum, each well-loved and celebrated in our class and in our school.  Our pre-formal curriculum has three main areas of focus.  These are:  Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning and Physical and Sensory.    We are always working on everything!  We love to engage in our varied activities that include, rebound therapy, hydrotherapy, forest school, massage, MOVE and play in the sensory garden.  We work hard with lots of different specialists and equipment to learn about our bodies and all of the brilliant things we can do with them, developing our physical functional movement in challenging and fun ways.

Covid-19 

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We have put together a list of suggestions and links to online resources that might be useful for things to do at home, especially if the weather isn’t welcoming enough to go outside!  It is not at all expected that these resources be accessed or used as we know that you all have great ideas of what to do with your children at home. 

If you’d like to share photographs, messages or videos via our Evidence for Learning app, Facebook page or Blue Frogs class e-mail we’d love to see them.

We are all missing our Blue Frog family very much!

Stay safe, take care and we look forward to this being over so we can see you all again.

If you need any advice please do not hesitate to contact me via the Blue frogs E-mail address.
