Moles Class is made up of 6 children and led by Mrs Jukes (Class Teacher) and Teaching Assistants. Children in Moles Class follow the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), learning and developing through motivating activities. We currently have a mix of Reception and year 1 age children. The class routines consist of adult led and child-initiated activities in both the classroom and outdoor environment. We use a Total communication approach by using visual cue cards and timetables. We also use Makaton and ALD boards with our children.

Our topics and themes are based around the seven EYFS areas of learning and development which include three prime areas; communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development and four specific areas; literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design. Alongside the classroom and outdoor activities we also support the children to individually develop their personal and independence skills with feeding, dressing, toileting and socialising with others, as well as preparing them for everyday school life.


Class updates

Physical Education

Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure your child has their PE kit to keep in school and it is clearly labelled.

Life Skills

During Life skills this term, we will be focusing on Keeping Healthy and Personal Development, including Water Safety, Road Safety and Stranger Danger.

Soft Play

Every other Wednesday, your child will be attending Crystal Leisure Centre to take part in Soft Play sessions as part of their Physical Development. This will take place in the morning session. Can the children come dressed in appropriate comfortable clothing.


The children access books every day. They are encouraged to explore books by looking at the illustrations and independently turning the pages. The staff sit 1:1 with each child to read their own reading book and this is changed once a week. Please share reading books at home with your child to encourage a love of reading.
