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 1 Learning Journey
What is our Journey?
This term, we will be exploring the concept of 'Journeys' through our rich texts 'Leon and the Place Between' and 'The Journey'. Through the first text the children will step into the magical world of the 'Place Between', close family relationships and the magical powers of imagination to travel to different places in the mind.
Through second text, we will focus on the emotional hardships experienced during a refugee's journey to a place of safety. In our PSHE lessons, the children will continue to develop their understanding of resilience and will know ways to overcome difficulties.
In Science, we will be learning about Animals, including Humans through a range of practical tasks and investigations. The children will be learning about the human body (skeleton and muscles) and how to keep it healthy, including food groups, nutrients and exercise.
