Croeso i Dosbarth Elm
About Our Class
Dosbarth Elm is a small group setting. Miss Noller is the teacher, supported by Mrs Massey (Level 4. TA), Mrs Carlile and Miss Hughes. In our class we have tailored the curriculum to ensure that it is accessible by all children in the class, using a combination of elements from the Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2 Frameworks. We support children's learning through a range of specialist strategies, such as Makaton, visual timetables, symbols and communication boards. We use a differentiated, child-centred approach in all of our planning and teaching and are dedicated to ensuring that each child is able to reach their individual potential, whilst providing a nurturing environment enabling children to have a positive experience of school in a safe and calm space.
Our week in class
When is our P.E. day?
Our P.E. days are Thursday and Friday. Children will need both an indoor and outdoor kit in school.
Show and Tell
Every Wednesday the children will be allowed to bring in something from home for show and tell. This is a great opportunity for them to develop their speaking and listening skills whilst talking about something special to them
All children will have a homework book and bag which they will bring home on a Friday with a reading book and spellings to learn. Children can use their homework books to display any work they complete at home off the homework grid or independently. Please can all bags be returned to school on a Monday.
What are we doing this term?
During the first half of the Autumn Term we will be following Mantle of the Expert and our topic is life in the 1960s. The children will have sensory experiences and hands-on opportunities alongside formal learning time as appropriate.
