Welcome to Katie’s Class!
We are a specialist sensory ASD unit with a big heart!
In order to reach our full potential we benefit from a play-based curriculum which integrates the use of total communication, intensive interaction, sensory stories, sensory diets, signing, and kinaesthetic approaches to learning.
We learn best through a mixture of adult-led and child-initiated activities that support our multisensory needs, motor skills, social skills, communication and independence.
We love to explore our environment in many different multisensory ways; we enjoy swimming, Rebound therapy, Sensory baking, Forest School, outdoor play, going for community walks and getting out and about on our sunshine mini bus.

Happy New Year!
Spring 2022 - our topic this term is
‘What is it made of and what does it do?’
Merry Christmas from Katie’s Class!
Come & see our fun, learning journey as we soar to success this upcoming year!
Autumn term 2021 - Our topic this term is Celebrations!
Autumn term 2: week 4 - This week we have been learning about the celebration of Thanksgiving. Through a sensory story and play based activities we explored things that we were thankful for and explored some ways that others celebrate this tradition. We made a turkey stew in sensory baking and practiced our kitchen safety with some chopping skills.
Welcome to Purple Frogs 1 2020-2021
Summer term 2021 - Our topic this term is 'Our Wonderful World'
Hello 2021 - Happy New Year!
This isn't quite the January we all had in mind but we can get through the uncertainty of Lockdown 3.0 the way we have done for the past year... TOGETHER!
When the children are in school we will be continuing to work on their sensory diets, communication development and personal learning outcomes (PLOs) and keeping our routine and learning as 'normal' as we can possibly make it.
For children who are at home I will set home learning activities which will be emailed weekly (and also found on the class page below) and I will send a pack home each week with additional activities and resources to support the children's home learning. I will also be posting weekly videos of myself and the P1 staff doing activities for the children to watch and join in with. These will be available via EFL.
We completely understand that these are difficult, trying and tiring times for everyone so please do not feel pressured to complete these activities, you know your children best and you need to do what is right for you as a family at home.
Don't forget to keep uploading photos and videos onto EFL to show us what you have been up to!!
Please contact me via our class email if you have any questions or need support firstname.lastname@example.org

Weekly Home Learning Activities
Autumn term - Our topic this term is 'All about me and you'
come and see what we've been getting up to...
COVID -19 social distancing
The Kingsbury team and I hope that you are all well and keeping safe during this time. We understand that these are uncertain times that we are experiencing and we are here to support you and your families in any way that we can.
I will continue to email you all weekly with activity ideas, useful links and home learning/play ideas to help keep you all busy and sane! I have added some links here on the class page too for some useful online learning activities (some may be more useful than others).
All the activities that I will be providing and suggest will be optional, and I want you to choose, based on your family circumstances, how many and how often you ask your child to undertake home learning activities.
However, if you would like to show us what you are getting up to then please send any pictures via email or EFL - I would love to see what you get up to whilst you are staying at home. I am definitely missing my little Purple Frogs.
