Dame Ellen Pinsent School


Welcome to Deer’s Class Page 


We are a lower school class, following the Orchard curriculum pathway with six children in the class. We will be focusing on the areas of Maths, English, Understanding of the World, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, and Expressive Arts. We will be doing lots of practical and sensory learning as well as using a TEACCH approach.


Our class teacher is Mrs MacLean who teaches us on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoon. Aimee W teaches on a Friday morning. We also have two fantastic teaching assistants: Sofina and Aafia.


We have Jo Jingles on a Friday afternoon, where the children are learning to explore a number of percussion instruments and songs. The children really enjoy these sessions. On Monday mornings we have PE and soft play. Every day Deer’s class will do Attention Autism, Tac Pac, Theralympics and Communication sessions. We will also spend some time working on our EHCP targets.


This term we will continue to get to know the children and will begin our new topic ‘All about me’. We will be doing lots of practical activities in Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts to explore our bodies.


We will share our daily activities regularly on Class Dojo so please check this often! You can click the links on the left to see what we have been doing recently.


Deer’s have been working really hard and here are some photos of what we have been getting up to so far!
