Meet the Sea Turtles Team
Mrs Rossi-Bennett, Miss Tyson
Also working with us during the week are:
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.

Term 5: What do plants do for us?
What do record players, batteries, and movie cameras have in common? All these devices were created by the man known as the Wizard of Menlo Park: Thomas Edison. Edison is most famous for inventing the incandescent lightbulb and despite many failures, Edison persevered. And good for that, because it would be very difficult to go through a day without using one of his life-changing inventions. In this enlightening book, Gene Barretta enters the laboratories of one of America's most important inventors. This term we will be developing our persuasive writing skills in the form of an advert selling Edison's world famous invention.
We will also be planning, drafting and editing a fictional narrative based on 'The Barnabus Project'.
In a world built for Perfect Pets, Barnabus is a Failed Project, half mouse, half elephant, kept out of sight until his dreams of freedom lead him and his misfit friends on a perilous adventure. A stunning picture book from international bestsellers The Fan Brothers, joined by their brother Devin Fan. This book gives us the opportunity to explore our PSHE theme of community further and develop our interpersonal skills.
Please make sure your child has the following items for each PE session:
a yellow t-shirt
black shorts and black jogging bottoms or leggings
plimsolls or non marking trainers
Our Woodland days generally take place once a term. Families are notified near the time when a woodland day has been scheduled.
The children need to come dressed in appropriate clothing, including long sleeved tops and trousers to protect them from thorns.

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.
