Sky Class News


Welcome to our wonderful Sky class families.


We are delighted to have had a wonderful start to the Autumn Term. Sky Class pupils spend some time in the LaunchPad and some time in their mainstream classes. 


In Sky class we are working hard on social communication, fine motor skills, collaboration and team work, speech and language development and Maths and English skills. We enjoy sensory games and relaxation alongside opportunities for physical education and activities to increase our confidence and resilience! 


We are hoping to get off site regularly including trips to the local library and green areas and we look forward to using the great outdoors to support our learning. 


We are also excited that this half term involves World Mental Health Day and World Poetry Day! What exciting adventures await us. 


Our big push is reading for pleasure! Please read with each other, send in your favourite books, tell us all about your favourite authors and help us ignite a joy for reading in all.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions and we will get back to you.
