Potter Class (Resource Base)
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.
Mrs Gumbrill is the class teacher and we have three Teaching Assistants who work in our class across the week, Mrs Stevens, Miss Metcalfe and Mrs Cozens.
Please ensure that your child has a named PE kit in school during term and they have a pair of wellies they can change into at playtime as the weather changes.
Also please remember we shall be going swimming on Friday's so please 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; please look out for the 'Sign of the week' displayed in the classroom window.
Please ask a member of staff if you need any support with this, we will always be happy to show you!
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 Sharer's' 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 their 'Storysharing' bags. Please remember to send in/email any props e.g. photos which will help the story become even more powerful.
