This group enables children to access the curriculum in a variety of ways. It's focus is to work on the small steps targets that are on Education Health Care Plans or targets set by class teachers. 

A variety of areas are focused on daily- especially Speech and Language Therapy. 

It runs in the mornings and children go there for their targeted interventions and then return to class.

Class teachers are still responsible for the children who join this group and along with the SENCO, monitor progress carefully.

The photographs below show the variety of activities that the children have experienced  - all planned for meeting the needs of the individual child.

 Serious Toppings 

Pancake day was a big thing.

The children:

  • found a recipe,
  • made a shopping list
  • went to the local CO-OP to purchase ingredients
  • created a survey for favourite toppings
  • and finally made them!

Problem Solving - The task was to build a rocket as part of a Space themed topic.           


Outside space is important to us. When we can, we use the calm space of our Lottery Garden.
