Class Overview:

We would like to send a warm welcome to our pupils and their parents and carers of Rainbow Fish Class. The children will be working with Sue (Teacher) Sophie (TA) Tasha (TA) and Hannah (TA)

Rainbow Fish Class is a child centred class and we follow the children’s interest to encourage them to explore the different learning experiences we offer. We enjoy exploring inside and outdoors throughout the day. We explore the seven areas of learning, which are: -

Ø Communication and Language

Ø Physical Development

Ø Personal, Social & Emotional Development

Ø Literacy

Ø Maths

Ø Understanding of the World

Ø Expressive Arts & Design

In Rainbow Fish Class we use a total communication approach using symbols, signing and verbal interaction to support our pupils. We encourage the children to be inquisitive and explore using their senses and through practical and focussed activities.
