Within the Giraffes class are many of our most academically able learners who are learning in a more formal environment.The focus is on social skills, turn taking and developing independence to support learners to access a wider range of experiences. The Giraffes spend their mornings focussing on key literacy, language, communication and numeracy skills. Within the afternoons the theme is used as a tool to deliver knowledge and understanding linked to PSHE and Creative development. Year 5 and 6 learners within this class visit Castleton swimming baths. Bi weekly bus trips also help the Giraffes to develop life skills they will need as they grow as well as enriching the curriculum with specifically planned trips to support their learning.
The teacher is James.
