In Turtles we follow an early years curriculum and all our work is carried out in a totally communication rich environment.
We use touch cues and objects of reference to help us know where we are going and we love to take part in intensive interact with adults in class.
We love to listen to songs, stories and nursery rhymes and take part in sensory stories. We develop our fine and gross motor skills through sensory and messy play.
Phonics in class is listening to environmental and familier sounds and identifying them.
Reading in Turtles is litening to and sharing stories together as a class, individually with and adult and sharing books at home with our families too.
Maths teaching and learning.
In Turtles we use an early years curriculum and all maths work is done through rhyme and in continuous provision..
Maths activities are topic based and hands on. They include colour matching objects to cards and pictures, threading using colour of the day or mixing colour of the day with an alternative colour to create a basic pattern, shape sorting, posting and number rhymes as well as counting out load in various activities with an adult.
There is opportunity throughout the day for our children to access continuous provision, to further develop their numeracy, literacy, fine motor and ICT skills.
.We go swimming every other Tuesday or Thursday. A note will be put in your child's diary to inform you when they will be going. Please ensure children have their swimming kits on these days. Thank you.
