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 Mrs Wallace.

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.
  • Our PE day is on a Monday or Wednesday afternoon.
  • We do lots of messy play so could we please have spare clothes just in case we get a little bit dirty!
  • We cook on a Tuesday and we cook or taste different things every week!
  • For this half term we will be having our Forest Schools session on a Wednesday morning.
  • We go shopping either on a Thursday or a Friday every week, if you're unsure which day your child goes on or if anything changes we will let you know!

 

Thank you for your continued support :)
