In Conishead, most of our learning is done through play. Structured and focussed teaching and learning is delivered in each lesson followed by learning through play.
Our focus in English continues to be on empowering our pupils to communicate using total communication – spoken language, signs and gestures, visuals, low and high tech aids such as Grid, Eye gaze and buttons.
We deliver Read Write Inc daily, with a new phonics sound every week. We aim to foster an enjoyment of listening to stories and we are also committed to developing fine motor skills and early writing skills.
Every maths lesson starts with counting. We have a heavy focus on recognising and understanding number, but much of this is done through play. We also learn about shape, time and measure.
