Holly Class

Welcome to the Holly Class Page

 

Hi! Welcome to the Holly class page. We are a group of 11 energetic young gentlemen who are always looking for opportunities to promote our independence. Our teacher is called Tom and we have Michelle, Claire and Megan to support our learning. We also have Sharon and Jo who who help us out too!. We are a very busy class and we love a challenge. We like to be out and about in the local community experiencing new things and exploring our surroundings.

Brushing Our Teeth

 

After lunch each day, we brush our teeth. We put tooth paste on our brushes by ourselves and we take turns picking different songs to brush our teeth to. When the song finishes we know to put our brushes away.

Peer Massage

 

In Holly class we take part in peer massage after lunch time to help us relax before we transition to our lunch time clubs or the adventure playground. We repeat it twice turning our chairs around so everyone has a turn at having a massage. Have a go at home.
