                        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.

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. 

In English, we will use this text to inspire different styles of writing including a newspaper report, a balanced argument and a diary entry. 

In the build up to these extended pieces of writing, we will revisit different types of sentences, as well learning how different sentence openers and conjunctions can enhance their writing.

We will also be revising how to punctuate adverbials and clauses with commas and how to use inverted commas and other associated punctuation  for dialogue.
