Meet the Sea Turtles Team
Ms Uphus (Monday to Wednessday) and Mrs Knight (Thursday and Friday)
What does provision look like for those with additional needs in Sea Turtles 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.
Pupil planners need to be brought into school and handed in every morning and checked by a class adult daily
We will visit the library weekly
PE days are Monday (inside) and Friday (outside)
Mrs Broderick will teach the class on Wednesday afternoons during the teachers' PPA
Term 2: To change is to improve?
Through our rich text ‘The Wild Way Home’ by Sophie Kirtley, we will be stepping back in time to the Stone Age! We will be exploring this wonderful text in RIC, developing a range of reading skills, such as predicting, inferring, retrieving and summarising.

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 in the new green Reading record book. We encourage children to read at least five times a week either independently (aloud or in their head) or aloud with an adult.
Activities - there will be spellings to learn and timetables to practise. In addition to this, there will be either a RIC (reading) or SPAG task.
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.
