1st February update
We hope you're all keeping well. It is so lovely to talk to you all on a weekly basis and keep in touch in these uncertain times. We are missing all the pupils so much. We know hard it is for everyone at the minute so as we've said before- activities are there to access if wanted- there is no pressure from us to complete everything
We will organise a zoom catch up for next week
Kate, Kirsten and Helen
15th January update
We are slowly uploading more to the website including individual targets and resources. We have also added us singing (badly on my part) a Hello songs which has been added to the Circle Time file and two Singing Hands videos again to the file. We have also recorded the signs for some useful things such as 'stand' 'toilet' 'eat' and 'drink' If there is anything you think of that would help you in anyway let us know...
We will be in touch on Monday again so if there is anything, you can have a chat to us then :)
Have a lovely weekend

Happy New Year
Welcome Back! We hope you have had as lovely a Christmas as possible given the current climate. We have missed you and are looking forward to seeing you as soon as we can!
This term we are going on a trip to Narnia! our topic is the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and we will be focusing on choice making within this. We will be exploring Winter through this topic, learning about habitats, seasonal changes and weather as well as becoming scientists for lots of science experiments.
Choice making will be reinforced throughout this topic and throughout the whole school day- choices of tools, colours, materials etc. The opportunity to choice make gives the learners ownership over their learning and as teenagers they definitely have opinions to give us!
For those Pupils not returning to us as soon as we would like, the website will continue to be uploaded to weekly. There will also be a link to the ASDAN accreditation with work you can do at home and an explanation as to what is is
Buddy the Elf has arrived!
On the 1st December, we came into school to find a large Cracker on the table...
We met our new Elf friend but still didn't know what his name was...
The next day we came into School to find the Elf hanging from toilet roll from the hoist! Think we have a naughty Elf on our hands... We found out his name was Buddy!
Autumn 2- Reason for the Season
Welcome back Dosbarth Ely! This half term we will be exploring my favourite Season...Autumn! We will also be looking at Bonfire Night, Diwali and of course, Christmas!
We have a busy half term with lots of hard work including a Christmas Concert to put together!
Unfortunatly, we will not be back together for a few days as the Boiler has broken and we don't want you getting too cold in school with no hot water- so below are a few activities you can do at home, our first weeks focus is 'Bonfire Night'
Happy 16th Birthday Noah
We are so excited to see you all back in class and welcome our new pupils. Things will look slightly different in class. You will all have your own work stations with your photo on as well as your own boxes full of your favourite things, art supplies, and equipment for your IEP targets.
We will look a bit different as well as we will be wearing face coverings, as well as other PPE while we work with you to keep us all safe
We will either be wearing these face coverings...
See you Monday!

WELCOME BACK DOSBARTH ELY
We hope you have had a lovely half term break enjoying the Sunshine with your families. It was lovely to see you on our Zoom call and we can't wait for the next one.
This half term, our topic is 'The Great Escape.' Although we can't go very far at the moment, we are going to be learning about different Countries around the World and learning about their Cultures.
Before we do that though, we will be packing suitcases, making passports and going on a Airplane journey!
Hope you are all safe and happy, we are missing you all so much!
Kate, Kirsten, Rosie, Linda and Julie
Welcome to Dosbarth Ely
We hope you are all staying safe and managing to enjoy family time. This half term our topic is ‘Animals (responsibilities)’ As we are in a very strange situation right now we thought we would make the most of being at home and explore our gardens through the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ as well as being a story the pupils love, we thought using a well known story may make things a bit easier!
We will be exploring different insects and plants we can find in our Garden as well as exploring the yummy foods mentioned in the story.
The links to the new topic work are below but the Video messages, Circle time, Useful websites and past weeks activities are still available further down the page
Missing you all and cant wait to see you all soon
