What does provision look like for those with additional needs in Mantarays 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.
Current Term 6 Knowledge Organiser
Kindness: How do I pass it forward?
Our term 6 Learning Journey Question is answering the question, 'Kindness: How do I pass it forward?'. Each term our learning will be themed around a key question.
How can our perceived weaknesses play to our advantage?
Our English text for term 6 is called, Goodnight Mister Tom by, Michelle Magorian. The book focuses on WW2 and encourages the children to deepen their understanding of what life was like for children during the war. The book describes the events and life of a young boy who is evacuated to the country side to live with a stranger. The children will be writing a play script about key aspects of the book. This will develop their understanding of play writing and encourage them to describe characters feelings in a different format. Not only this, but the children will finish term 6, writing a non-chronological report and creating a poem about the war. At this point, the children will need to ensure they are understanding the impact the war had on the lives of individuals (specifically children) and effects that had on them.
