Fun in the Sun


Our aim is to provide a supportive learning environment that encourages our students to become confident and independent explorers. We use targeted interventions, such as Tac Pac, Identiplay, and Attention Autism, to help our students develop their communication skills, both verbal and non-verbal. These interventions are tailored to meet the individual needs of each student to ensure they receive the best possible support.


We believe in the importance of experiential learning, where our students learn through doing. Our students participate in a range of activities that help them to develop their independence and communication skills. For example, our students take part in our café, this learning experience requires them to follow instructions and communicate effectively with their peers and teachers, using PODD and Makaton. We also use technology, such as iPads, to support our students' learning and communication.


Our approach has a significant impact on our students' development. Our students are more confident, independent, and able to communicate their needs and wants effectively. They are active citizens in their community and demonstrate a growing awareness of the world around them. Our students are also developing a better understanding of their local community and utilise visits out to be able to contribute positively to this goal.

We are proud of our students' achievements and are committed to providing them with the best possible education. If you would like to learn more about our class or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for visiting our page!

Our Reading Approach:

At Two Rivers Primary School, we are dedicated to providing our students with a strong foundation in reading. To achieve this goal, we use the Bug Club Phonics Programme. This programme is designed to help children learn the sounds and letter combinations that make up words, which is essential for their reading and writing development. The Bug Club Phonics Programme is a comprehensive approach that combines phonics, irregular words and contextual reading to help students develop their reading skills. Our teachers use a variety of fun and engaging activities to help children master phonics, such as games, songs, and interactive lessons. We believe that every child deserves to learn to read and enjoy the magic of stories, and our Bug Club Phonics Programme helps make this a reality. Please visit the dedicated Reading page within the Parents and Carers section of our website for further information about Phonics and some useful links to help you support your child with reading at home. 

For our phase 1 learners we focus greatly on engaging the learners in developing their pre reading skills, this sometimes includes adaptations to best support individuals, who require this.
