Skylarks

General Information

The Skylarks class provides creative and personalised learning opportunities within a Total Communication Environment. We work as a whole class, in small groups and on a 1:1 basis to build upon each child’s skills to develop confidence and independence. The teachers; Kimberley Miller (Mon-Thurs) and Suzanne Pass (Fri) along with Teaching Assistants; Nikki Cooke, Joanne Winterburn and Pam Seers work together as a team to support each child to learn and develop. We have a lunchtime assistant; Suzanne Barnsley who will help to support the children to develop their independence and personal care skills over the lunchtime period.


Sign of the Week

At Kingfisher we use Signalong as a part of a Total Communication Approach, we are constantly using core vocabulary with the children to support their language development and then through each of our topics we introduce new signs and language, which extends their vocabulary further. We also have two “Signs of the Week” which helps maintain and extend key knowledge and skills of everyday vocabulary.

Each half term we will be creating a short video showcasing and demonstrating our ‘Signs of the Week’ for the current term so that you can learn the signs and further this learning at home.

Lunchtime

If your child has a school dinner, the school menus can be accessed by clicking here. For children who bring a packed lunch, please remember to provide healthy and balanced options. We are a Healthy School and will be focussing on healthy eating and how children can make healthy lifestyle choices.
