A Little Bit About Our Class
Welcome to Dosbarth Juniper’s Class Page! In Dosbarth Juniper, Miss Wikluk is the class teacher who is supported by the four teaching assistants Mrs Turnbull, Mrs McCann, Mrs Parry and Miss Hughes. We also have Miss Humphreys working with us on a Tuesday and on a Friday, Mrs Dodds teaches Juniper Class for either one morning or afternoon.
In Dosbarth Juniper, the children are provided with a safe and fun learning environment where the Foundation Phase Curriculum is tailored to suit the children’s needs and abilities. A child-centred approach is adopted when planning for, and teaching individual children within Juniper Class. Focused activities are carefully balanced with the opportunity to explore different areas of the classroom where they can work on their social skills or consolidate their learning. This helps to ensure that each child is in an environment where they can reach their potential.
The children’s learning and communication skills are supported by a range of specialist strategies such as Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS), Makaton sign language, visual aids and communication boards. We apply a multi-sensory approach to our learning wherever possible to help engage the children further.
On our class page, you will find information about our current topics and see what we will be learning about this half-term. You will also be able to find your child’s homework tasks for this half term.
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.
