Welcome to Otters class page!

Welcome to Spring Term 2023! Please read below to find out more about our class and click the links down the side to find out what we have been doing!

We are a lower school class in the Orchards Pathway with 10 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 in Otters class, and we are very lucky to have our own outdoor area so we will also do some outdoor learning.

Our class teacher in Otters is Miss Cheatle and our wonderful teaching assistants are Rash, Marie, Poppy and Davinder. Aimee teaches Otters on a Tuesday all day while Miss Cheatle is working out of class. The lovely Shahida will be with us at lunchtimes.

Otters will have a Jo Jingles music session every Monday afternoon and will go swimming every Wednesday morning for the whole year. During this term we will have PE on a Thursday morning. This half term we will have Forest School on a Thursday afternoon. Every day Otters will do Attention Autism, Tac Pac, Theralympics and Communication sessions. We will also spend some time working on our EHCP targets.

This term our new topic will be Nursery Rhymes. We will spend a few weeks focusing on a nursery rhyme with our learning and activities being themed around this nursery rhyme. 

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.

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