Hello and welcome to Seahorses Class!

We are a mixed Lower Key Stage 2 Class of 9 pupils.

We have 5 members of staff to support us each day.

We are a happy, bubbly class who uses multiple forms of communication support such as using Signalong and symbols, alongside speech.

We are eager learners in Seahorses Class, we have adapted our curriculum to work with our own interests. The pupils choose what they would like to learn about each half term… This half term we are learning all about superheroes! This thematic approach immerses our pupils in their learning at all times – this makes learning fun and engaging for us!

We always encourage each other to be kind and caring friends, and you’ll often see us helping each other whenever we can. We always try our best with everything we do, and we celebrate successes no matter how small!
