Class Information

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.

Our Key Text: Song of the Dolphin Boy

A moving adventure about the impact of plastic pollution on our seas, and the campaigning power of friendship from the award-winning Elizabeth Laird, illustrated by Peter Bailey

Finn has always been different, and in the tiny fishing village of Stromhead he sticks out like a sore thumb. Always told to keep away from the water, he's felt that something was missing until one day he dives in and finds that, swimming with the dolphins, he feels completely at home.

But his new friends are in danger of being injured by the rubbish that floats out into the water - and now a supermarket is going to release thousands of balloons that could drift out to sea and cause even more damage. Desperate to help the dolphins, Finn goes to the Lighthouse Crew, a group of kids who have always left Finn out. Will they be able to set aside their differences to save the dolphins? And what will Finn discover about his past along the way?

Homework

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.
