Butterfly class is one of our mainly Reception to Year 1 Classes with severe learning difficulties. All the children follow EQUALs Semi-Formal curriculum with EYFS ethos and the philosophy of a cross-curricular learning through play approach in a low arousal environment. Alongside this, the children learn key skills through 1:1 adult-led structured activity. Each day consists of fun, practical, sensory related activities that promote a love for learning while increasing the children’s independence, confidence, self-esteem, social interaction and communication skills. Learning takes place both in the classroom and outdoors. There is a mix of adult led and child-initiated activities. Staff support the children to acquire an understanding of the world around them so that they can begin to develop their imagination, investigation and problem-solving skills.
