What does provision look like for those with additional needs in Sealions 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.

Class Information

Term 1 Learning Journey - What is our journey?

Key Texts

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', whereas the latter focuses on the emotional hardships experienced during a refugee's journey. 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. In Y3, the children will be learning about the human body (skeleton and muscles) and how to keep it healthy, including food groups, nutrients and exercise. In Y4, the children will learn about the functions of the organs involved in the digestive system and the different types of teeth. Our Geography unit focuses on settlements and land use, particularly in the UK.

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 on the Google Doc. 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.
