Chestnut class is a key stage 2 class, set in a highly structured environment with familiar daily routines, to support pupils to understand their expectations and become as independent as possible throughout their school day. This is supported through a range of visuals including now and next boards, working for boards and visual timetables. Learning is delivered through exciting and engaging topics, with pupils' taking-part in a range of both practical and tabletop activities, alongside specifically tailored workbox activities related to the pupils’ independent curriculum targets. Pupil learning is individualised to their learning and sensory needs, with pupils accessing independent timetables to optimise engagement in their learning. Development of communication skills underpins everything we do, alongside personal development, to ready our pupils towards their next step into key stage 3.
