What does provision look like for those with additional needs in Dolphins class?
Outlined in the document below are the waves of provision we use to support children with additional needs. Support is tailored to each individual and provided as needed, with or without a diagnosis. Please talk to your child's class teacher if you have any concerns about your child, their needs or the provision in class. You can find further information on the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities page on our website. This is where you will find our vision for SEND pupils, and our SEND information report which outlines what we as a school can offer.
In Term 1, we have PE on a Tuesday afternoon and a Thursday afternoon.

Below is a generic timetable that we will follow this term. It may vary slightly week to week due to additional activities/assemblies.
Term 1 Learning Journey: What is our Journey?
This term, we will be exploring the concept of 'Journeys' through our rich texts 'Leon and the Place Between' and 'The Journey'. Through the first text the children will step into the magical world of the 'Place Between', whereas the latter focuses on the emotional hardships experienced during a refugee's journey. In our PSHE lessons, the children will continue to develop their understanding of resilience and will know ways to overcome difficulties.
In Science, we will be learning about Animals, including Humans through a range of practical tasks and investigations. In Y3, the children will be learning about the human body (skeleton and muscles) and how to keep it healthy, including food groups, nutrients and exercise. In Y4, the children will learn about the functions of the organs involved in the digestive system and the different types of teeth. Our Geography unit focuses on settlements and land use, particularly in the UK.

Homework, including Sir Linkalot Login
Homework is set every Friday on Google Classroom and will be due in the following Thursday. The homework folder can be found under the 'Classwork' tab.
There are two sheets for homework:
Reading record - please record what you have read and how often you have read on the Google Doc. We encourage children to read at least five times a week either independently (aloud or in their head) or aloud with an adult.
Activities - Each week, there will be either a RIC (reading) or SPAG task set. In addition to this, a weekly times table will be assigned.
Spellings - Children will be asked to login into Sir Linkalot to practice their bundle of spelling words by re-watching animations, completing the quiz to find out their AlF and they can also complete a spelling crossword. Sir Linkalot can be accessed via the following website: app.sirlinkalot.org . You then need to use your login, which can be found on your homework google doc.
Mangahigh - Children to login and complete the Manga High task set by your teacher. They should aim to complete the task three times. The children's logins can be found on their Google Classroom under 'Classwork'.
Lexia - if your child has a Lexia account, please ensure they are accessing this regularly at home. Their login can be found on their Google Classroom under 'Classwork'.
Please do let the class teacher know if you require a paper copy.
We ask that you send in a photo of the work instead of a paper copy to reduce the number of items coming into school.
