Duckling / Gosling

Welcome to EYFS!

In Ducking and Gosling class we love to learn, play and have fun. The key areas we focus on are Cognition and Learning, Communication and Language, Social, Emotional and Mental Health, Physical and Sensory and Independence and Self Help. 

We follow a play based curriculum and learn in many ways. We have lots of adult and child-led play based activities to provide meaningful opportunities to develop our skills. We have personalised sensory diets and regulation plans to enable us to stay focused and organised throughout the day. We also love Attention Autism (especially ‘bucket’) where we develop our attention, communication and interaction skills. We spend lots of time working on our communication such as listening to sensory stories, Intensive Interaction, PECS and Makaton.
