Welcome to Cadbury Nurture

Our recent OFSTED visit was in June and they loved visiting our children in Cadbury class! They even mentioned it in the report! "Specialist provision for a group of pupils with significant additional needs meets their individual needs very effectively. The use of Makaton throughout the day and a rich range of carefully chosen resources ensure that pupils make good progress towards their individual targets." OFSTED June 2019

​Open Day

We had an amazing 'Mini Beast hunt and picnic' on Wednesday 26th June. Thank you to those who were able to attend including our school governor Mr Henderson. We were very lucky to be able to release some of our butterflies - a fantastic experience for all!

We look forward to welcoming you to our new-look Cadbury class in September.

A Huge Thank You

Thank you for your continued support especially with reading at home – we have noticed some great progress with ALL the children! They are becoming wonderful independent learners and we continue to be amazed by them.

Changes to Cadbury Class

A few new exciting changes for the next academic year will be a happening to Cadbury class. First, joining the Cadbury Team alongside Mrs Lee Bradford in September will be Miss Rachel Mousley who is incredibly excited to be teaching and supporting all children in Cadbury class. Secondly, we will be making changes to our curriculum and timetable to ensure all children can access learning at a more personalised level, this will include developing our sensory provisions and developing our speech and language interventions. We will also be changing our classrooms with one room specifically focussed on sensory needs and the other a more structured learning environment for writing and maths. We look forward to sharing our changes with you at our open day in September.

Transition

As we approach the end of another successful year, we are aware of many changes which can be difficult for some of our children. With this in mind, we will be focussing on transitional support through social stories, during our social groups and when considering our emotions and how to manage anxieties. Where necessary, children will also spend more time with their new class teacher to help build a positive relationship. We know this can be a worrying time for parents/carers too, so should you require any support, please do not hesitate to come in and speak to Miss Mousley, Mrs Bradford or your child’s class teacher.

This term

We will be learning about growing and living things, including English work using the book 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' which also links to our discussions around changes. We are currently watching our caterpillars grow before they become butterflies.

We will have an “all about me “ topic to introduce ourselves to our new teachers in July.

We are experimenting with new sensory experiences and physical activity including gardening and cooking with the vegetables, herbs and fruits from our garden.

Out and about experiences will include a visit from White Post Farm, a visit to the AMC Community Gardens and (weather permitting) walks to see and experience the changes in the seasons and the local wildlife.

Commando Joe will no longer be with us however we will continue our 'Commando Joe' sessions every Monday.

Children received certificates for their outstanding work with Commando Joe so we look forward to them improving and developing key skills such as communication, listening and cooperation.

New Sensory Room

For some children, the lights and sounds of school can be overwhelming and can cause anxiety or difficulty with learning. Our new sensory room will allow children time to process and understand their sensory needs. Our new projector, which creates moving images across the walls, will also be used within our curriculum to support children with their reading and writing.

Life Skills

Every Wednesday afternoon, the children take part in Life Skills - an important part of their holistic growth here at Victoria Primary School. We support the children with a range of life skills and the children absolutely love taking part - especially if it is cooking week! The rest of this academic year will be full of more exciting experiences and trips which we will keep you updated on. Should you wish to find out more about Life Skills, please come and speak to Mrs Bradford or Miss Mousley (SENCo)
