Dovedale is one of our Primary classes and is part of the Stage 1 progression route across the school. This year we have a class of five students who are aged between six and ten years of age.
The students access most of their learning in their own classroom, which has an adjoining sensory room. Our continuous provision enables pupils to learn though play and develop their play skills. Adult-led activities are carried out either on a one-to-one basis or in small group in a separate work area. Regular opportunities for outdoor learning are also encouraged, which includes forest schools and learning in our own outdoor areas.
Each school day begins with an interactive 'Hello' session in which we share the timetable, welcome everyone to the class and identify our feelings. A creative and multi-sensory approach to learning is adopted across all subjects and is well-supported by the use of signs and symbols.
By providing a fun, safe and engaging environment the students in Dovedale, are enabled to succeed and achieve.
Outdoor learning - Please provide wellies and all in one rainsuits OR waterproof coats and trousers as we shall be accessing outdoor learning all year round in all weathers.
