Welcome to our Pebble Class learning hub!
Meet the team
Class Teacher - Miss Johnson
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Reynard and Ms Buglass
Thank you for visiting our class page. Here you will find key information about our learning, our newsletters and photos showing what we have been busy doing.
Start of the day: The gates will be open between 8.45am and 9am for your child to be dropped off at The Lighthouse door. Some children will enter school at the main entrance depending on circumstances.
End of the day: The gate will open at 3pm.
In the Lighthouse, we do P.E. on a Thursday. Please can you ensure your child has a named P.E. kit to leave in school so we can practise encourage developing their own self care skills such as dressing and un-dressing independently. These kits will be sent home every half term to be washed. We also have Fit Friday every week where your child should come into school wearing a P.E. kit.
Communication Books and Class Dojo
In the Lighthouse, our key daily communication is done through communication books. Please ensure these are filled in and sent into school every day. These are so important to make sure we know about any difficulties and/or successes for your child so we can support them and their needs successfully. We will also be using Class Dojo to post pictures of all the incredible learning we have been completing throughout the year - please note we will not be responding to any messages on Class Dojo. However, if there is anything you need to discuss in further detail or if you have any concerns, please email email@example.com or call the school office to arrange a meeting.
In Pebble Class, children learn through both play-based activities which have been planned to capture the interest of the children alongside developing their cognitive, social and motor skills. During an average day, the children take part in a combination of individual teaching sessions, small group adult led sessions and periods of child-initiated time where they are supported by staff.
The Lighthouse children each follow a bespoke curriculum in line with both the National Curriculum and Early Years Curriculum, depending on their age and developmental stage. Extra opportunities for developing their life skills are built into their learning journey and individual targets are worked towards from the children’s Education, Health and Care Plans. When appropriate, children in the Lighthouse have regular opportunities to interact and learn alongside their peers within a mainstream class.
Our Play Therapist Rachael works alongside the children and staff on a weekly basis and we receive regular support and advice from an Occupational Therapist and from a Speech and Language Therapist.
In Pebble Class, we aim to create an environment which is caring, nurturing and supportive. We strive to develop the children’s confidence and independence and we love celebrating every small step of success and progress.
