In Seahorse class, we encourage the learners to engage through real life learning opportunities to make it purposeful for them with a clear structure. This enables them to make links to their own experiences and promotes discussions where they can learn from one another. We provide a safe and stimulating learning environment for the individuals to thrive in and believe every minute of the day can be a learning opportunity and continuously set high expectations. We value the importance of regular wellbeing check-ins throughout the day and encourage the learners to use an appropriate strategy to self-regulate and talk to a familiar adult if they need to. We demonstrate pride in our work and can't wait to show you all the things we get up to over the year.
Exciting moments from Seahorse will appear in this space, including any pictures or videos we take. Please keep checking in, in order to see what the learners have been up to!
Seahorse class have been immersed and focused on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dhal in English this half term. They began by looking at some of the characters from the narrative, then created and described their own character using interesting adjectives. They used a shoe box and a range of different sweets to design and make their own chocolate room before, writing a setting description using their senses. The learners then worked to plan their chapter by putting together images and captions on a story mountain. They finished the term by using the skills they developed to write an exciting chapter about their own character finding a golden ticket and facing a problem in their setting.
