Miss Dobson


Welcome to the nurture class page! My name is Miss Dobson and I am the school SENCO at Clapgate. During the morning sessions I work with groups of children in my classroom, have a look at the pictures below to see what we have been up to so far! This half term (June - July) our learning adventure is The Seaside - we cant wait to visit Bridlington and play on a real beach! 

Look at the photos below to see everything we have been up to this year. We hope you enjoy them!



When the beach came to our classroom!

On our first day back at school we designed our own butterflies! First we read the story of The Hungry Caterpillar and then we looked at lots of different images of butterflies. We used these to help us create our own, which we put together to make a beautiful butterfly garden! Then we used paper plates to make the butterfly life cycle. We split the plate into quarters and made models for each stage of life using lots of different materials. Check out the pictures below!

We were lucky enough to have a special Easter visitor in our class before the holidays! Reception class nurtured their own chicks and they very kindly let us borrow one! We had lots of fun with Pecky, we didn't want him to leave!

During our celebration learning adventure we learnt about Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas. We also learnt about Birthdays and we planned our own birthday party! We wrote invitations and party food lists and then we had a party to celebrate Miss Shaw's birthday!

Happy Birthday Miss Shaw!

During our Celebrations learning adventure we had a visit from a Wicked Witch, who left us a potion to tell us how to turn our teacher into a.....TOAD!! Did it work???
