The Programme is designed for children aged 4-11 years. There are 4 boxes included within the programme. The programme can be used to support word knowledge, to support a pupil's ability to follow concepts and directional language , for children with English as an Additional Language or for children who would benefit from small group work with peers to develop higher level language skills, such as inference.
In order to complete the programme, staff are required to access the training package , this includes a series of videos, and activities which are facilitated by a member of the Assure Health Team.
The training supports the rationale behind each of the activities, why we have used movement to support learning , as well as allowing staff a greater in-depth understanding as to why some children may have difficulty in accessing particular tasks within the classroom. The training programme introduces The Pyramid for Learning designed by Taylor and Trott in 1991, as well as work by Sensory Integration Theorist, Jean Ayres.
We have included a wealth of activities to support each layer of The Pyramid for Learning, including supplementary activities to be used alongside the programme.
The second part of the accompanying training programme introduces The Higher Level Language Pyramid, designed by Dr, Karen Cundy.
There is an emphasis on the foundation skills that are essential in the development of higher level language skills , including word knowledge, executive functioning skills and our ability to make local and global inference.
Box 1 and 2
These boxes focus on small group or individual activities. Pupil's are encouraged to understand a variety of concepts such as positional and time concepts.
The activities are graded in complexity allowing pupils to progress through the stages, working towards more complex instruction. Activities allow pupils to learn through the use of visual , auditory and tactile resources.
Boxes 3 and 4
Boxes 3 and 4 focus on group activities, whilst introducing the characters of Sunnytown. Pupils are encouraged to learn about each of the characters through board games , reading comprehension tasks and case file stories, whilst introducing key vocabulary from the National Curriculum .
By the time pupils access the final box, they have all the background information that they require for each character. In small groups they are encouraged to work out who maybe responsible for the crimes. Pupils are introduced to Ronnie, Sunnytowns Loveable rogue who is often up to mischief, but be careful, it's not always what it seems, and pupils are encourage to find the facts before making a best guess as to what may have happened. With the help of Digby, Sunnytown's detective, the use of witness statements, character profiles and clue booklets, pupils have everything they need to crack the case.
