Katie Payne and Helen Drew

4, 5 and 6

Wake and Shake

Attention time

Phonics and handwriting









We also like to visit the library and soft play regularly.

We always have a lot of fun in Toucans class and strive to plan activities which are visually engaging and the children will remember. The class really enjoy the attention autism approach to teaching and can’t wait to see what Katie is going to do next to surprise them. The children love doing PE with Helen and also enjoy wake and shake and short warm up activities. Science and cookery is always a huge hit as the children get hands on and messy!

We really value the importance of developing communication and social skills and also support mental health and wellbeing. The adults enjoy yoga time with the children which is a time to stop, relax, breath and feel calm.

In Toucans class we like to award positive behaviours and great effort with work with stickers and certificates. At the end of each day the children who have made good choices all day receive a green sticker. We like to call negative choices or poor behaviour ‘red choices’ and positive choices and good behaviour ‘green choices.’
