Gold class has shown great communication skills as part of our daily snack routine. Each afternoon we ask the class members to choose their own choice of snacks.
The Picture Exchange Communication system is used for this exercise. This is the first building blocks that help with all communication throughout our school. It then leads to verbal communication skills. One of the Gold Class children has already progressed to this next level of learning.
There is a focus on choosing as part of this exercise. We present the children with many different options. They are encouraged to make a positive choice.
We are coming towards the end of our transport topic in Gold Class. The children have learnt some of the makaton signs used to describe different types of transport.
We have also had plenty of fun with food. The children have explored the textures of various fruits.
