Foundation Phase Specialist Teaching Facility for ASD - Miss Davies

Welcome to Our Class! 

In our class, we like to learn in lots of different ways and have fun! 

Some of our favourite learning activities are going shopping, cooking, singing and we love messy play! Most of all, we enjoy learning together! 

Miss Davies is our teacher and we are so lucky to be supported in our learning by Mrs Lewis, Miss Thomas, Mrs Sharpe and Miss Griffiths.

A few helpful reminders!

  • Class fund is paid on a Monday every week and is £3. This covers our fruit, healthy snack, cooking and going out on the minibus shopping every week. We are currently not taking class fund, however when this changes we will inform you. 
  • Our PE day is on a Monday or Wednesday afternoon.
  • Currently we are unable to chat when you drop off or collect your child, however if you have any questions or queries feel free to ask on Class Dojo or via email. 
  • We do lots of messy play so could we please have spare clothes just in case we get a little bit dirty!
  • Our school day is currently slightly shorter (9am - 2.45pm). When there are any changes, we will inform you. 

 

Thank you for your continued support :)
