Potter Class (Resource Base)
Please remember to send in stories which your child can share in our 'story sharing' sessions weekly.
Staff in all resource base classes have been trained as Story sharers through the 'Open storytelling project' and support all children with a range of communication needs to be able to share stories and have a 'voice'. Your input really is key to enabling your child's ability to share meaningful stories; whether they be big or small providing they are meaningful to your child our sessions provide an empowering ability for children to communicate through support of adult co-narration.
Story sheets are sent home and 'topped up' in book bags. Please remember to send in any props e.g. photos which will help the story become even more powerful.
Welcome to Potter class page.
We are a class of mixed age children ranging from Reception age to Year 2.
We have a fantastic and dedicated team of staff who work in the class. Miss Inkpen is the class teacher and we have three Teaching Assistants who work in our class across the week, Mrs Stevens, Miss Metcalfe, Mrs Cozens.
Our Topic this term is 'Who lives in my house?'
We shall be learning about different homes and about our families.
Please visit the 'Curriculum' section on our class page to find out more about what we will be learning this term.
Please ensure that your child has a named PE kit in school during term and they have a set of wellies they can change into at playtime as the weather changes.
Also please remember we shall be going swimming most Fridays so please ensure you send a swimming kit into school on the day to ensure your child can swim.
We use a range of communication programmes in our class to support how our children can interact and communicate to express themselves. Each week we shall be learning a new 'sign of the week' in line with the Makaton charity, our first week back in school we will be learning to say and sign 'good morning' to the adults and to our friends.
Please ask a member of staff if you need any support with this, we will always be happy to show you!
