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.

Term 3: Is sacrifice needed for the common good?

Each term our learning will be themed around a key question.

Our Term 3 topic is called, 'Is sacrifice needed for the common good?' and we will be focusing on the themes of: justice, faith, sacrifice and service.

Key learning

Our class text this term is called ‘Journey to Jo’burg’ by Beverley Naidoo. The story centres around two young children called Naledi and Tiro, living in South Africa during Apartheid. After their sister falls ill, they know they need to do everything it takes to find their mother in Johannesburg.

Throughout this term, Year 6 will be developing and recapping the skills needed to write a diary entry, from the perspective of Tiro or Naledi, a biography on the life of Nelson Mandela, and a speech from the point of view of Nelson Mandela after his release from prison. Year 6 will particularly focus on understanding the difference between the active and passive voice, using semicolons and using conjunctions to form complex sentences. All of this will support us to write using a formal tone.
