The staff in Primary 2 offer a caring and stimulating environment where pupils can continue to learn and develop skills throughout all the areas of the curriculum.
The department has an atmosphere of fun, energy and vibrancy in which to nurture these skills.
All pupils are encouraged to be as independent as possible, physically and in their life skills. The aim for all pupils in the department is that by the time they leave Primary 2 , they will have matured into confident individuals who have a desire to continue to learn new skills.
Rose class is a busy and physical class. We are all working hard to develop independent physical skills to access our environment and learning. We are very motivated to be independent in our walking, standing, and transitional skills. The school physiotherapists and our teachers enable us to incorporate these skills in all of our sessions. We still remain a very sensory oriented class and follow the new school curriculum alongside focusing on pupils' individual targets. We continue to work hard on developing our communication skills so that we can make choices and express our needs and feelings, through the use of Yes/No, PODD books, switches, sign language, and objects of reference. We, along with our teachers, explore and investigate together and have fun while taking part in sessions and activities.
Sunflower class has some very lively pupils! We all love to explore the environment through a variety of sensory experiences such as stories with props, mark making with different materials, artwork, etc. We are working hard on developing our communication skills so that we can make choices and express our needs and feelings, through the use of PODD books, switches, sign language, and objects. We are also developing our physical skills through swimming, hydro, P.E sessions, and physio sessions, according to our needs. We all love to be as active as we possibly can!
Buttercup class is a very active class! We love developing our physical skills and enjoy swimming, P.E, the soft play area, activities in the playground, riding bikes, and accessing our community.
We are also very focussed and motivated to learn. We love reading and literacy which promotes our ability to read and write, we enjoy developing our mathematical skills and increasing our understanding of the world by engaging in science and geography lessons. We are excellent at signing and using our PODD books and eye gaze devices to communicate with adults and our friends in the class. We are working hard on becoming as independent as possible during the school day and our teachers are trying really hard to encourage us to transfer these skills to our home environment.
