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 1 Timetable
Term 1: Whose world is it anyway?
Each term our learning will be themed around a key question.
Our term 1 topic is called, 'Whose world is it anyway?' and we will be focusing on the themes of: Care/Stewardship/Sustainability/Faith.
Our rich text this term is called Front Desk by author Kelly Yang.
The book's blurb:
1. She lives in a motel, not a big house.
2. Her parents hide immigrants.
3. She wants to be a writer.
It will take all of Mia's courage, kindness, and hard work to get through this year. Will she be able to hold on to her job, help the immigrants and guests, and go for her dreams?
Year 6 homework will be set on a Friday via Google classrooms (paper copies can be given if preferred) and will be due on the Thursday the following week. The homework will include:
Your child will also be given a project to complete every fortnight.
