Welcome to Seahorses Class!

We are a lovely class of 11 busy and active children learning alongside 5 adults.
We like to use a variety of multi-sensory approaches and incorporate a variety of learning
approaches to help us learn and meet our individual needs.
In Seahorses we are working on our communication skills alongside developing our
number, reading and writing.
We love achieving our goals and sharing these throughout the day and in the
afternoon we celebrate our achievements with Golden Time.
