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

English / RIC/ Reading: The children are supported with STEM sentence, shared writes, key word maps, focus words each week, group work, CLIKR, 1:1 reading sessions, daily reading, reading materials to follow during shared class reading sessions, Lexia and focused 1:1 / group same and next day interventions.

Maths: The children are supported through the use of scaffolding, Mangahigh, group work and use of resources. The resources allow the children to understand the lessons through focused concrete learning where they are supported in 1:1 and group same and next day interventions to progress onto pictorial and abstract learning.

Curriculum: The children are supported during curriculum lessons through the use of STEM sentences, verbal discussions to support understanding and group work.

What is our journey?

Our term 1 topic is called, 'What is our journey?' Each term our learning will be themed around a key question.

Key learning

Our English and RIC text for term 1 is Kensuke's Kingdom. The text takes the reader on a wonderful journey as a young boy mysteriously disappears the night before his twelfth birthday. This text challenges the children's vocabulary and sparks enjoyment as the mystery unravels. The children will be exploring the text to support them in writing a balanced argument and a recount from a characters perspective.
