Welcome to Webster Class


About Us

We're a lively and highly structured class that offers a range of techniques and practices to support each child's uniqueness.

Our learning is structured around the Beech Pathway. This delivers a unique and personalised curriculum to develop social communication and emotional regulation skills. Activities are tailored to encourage and develop the pre-requisites for learning including joint attention, engagement and participation, communication, mutual regulation and self-regulation. This curriculum is delivered in a highly structured environment with room for personalised flexibility within routines to meet a range of needs. Due to the nature of this curriculum, content is taught cross-curricular through highly motivating activities; including curriculum and multisensory.

Term 5 Focus

English - Sensology Sentence Building
Pupils will be developing their sentence building during exciting and interactive sensology sessions. These sessions will give the pupils an opportunity to explore a range of different materials, sounds, visuals, foods and smells which they will begin describing through forming a sentence. Pupils will be supported by visuals and aided language boards to encourage their communication and interaction with peers at the group table.

Maths - Geometry (Shape)
At the group table, pupils will be supporting their knowledge of shape whilst still having the opportunity to improve their communication with peers. This term, pupils will be focussing on the properties of shape, symmetry, and patterns and sequences. Pupils will be communicating with peers to complete shape puzzles and request specific objects to complete a sequence.

These sessions will provide a choice of engaging activities for pupils to opt-in to. These low-demand sessions are designed to support interaction between peers and encourage their exploration. Examples of these activities include: fine motor skills, exploring music, role-play and sensory play.

Hello/Good Afternoon
Pupils will say hello/good afternoon, share how they are feeling, identify their feelings on our 'Zone of Regulation' boards, identify the day, the weather, go through the timetable for the day, listen to the phonics sounds of the week, practice their turn taking and encourage friendships.

Bucket is a learning approach that aims to develop attention and natural, spontaneous communication skills in children through the use of visually based and highly motivating activities.

During these sessions, pupils will be supported with tasks such as, login on and off, using a keyboard and browsing the internet, whilst communicating what they want with the support of bespoke aided language boards.

Webster Class will participate in sessions with the school's specialist drama teacher, Anita.

P.E. Enrichment
Pupils will be able to choose their P.E. activity for the term. During these sessions, pupils will integrate with other pupils in the school with support from class staff. This will not only support their physical fitness but also their transitioning, meeting new friends and interaction with other pupils they might not be familiar with.

Pupils will be developing their coordination, balance, muscle and bone structure during these 1:1 dance-inspired trampolining sessions.

Pupils will be learning about bodies: the different parts, including private areas and what growing up looks like for the body.


How We Learn

In Webster Class, we follow the TEACCH cycle (in Maths & English).

This structured approach aims to:

  • Build independence.
  • Allow pupils to interact and communicate with peers.
  • Retain attention throughout the lesson.
  • Teach key functional skills.
  • Increase predictability.


The class are split into 3 groups who will cycle round the classroom, spending equal amounts of time at each area.

Group Table
This is where main learning takes place, the teacher and TAs will support pupils with achieving the objective of the lesson.

Pupils will have short independent tasks pitched at their ability. 

A brain break for pupils, with an opportunity for them to relax, explore or initiate play amongst a variety of resources.
