Welcome to Jigsaw!

Jigsaw is a safe place in school where children can learn, develop and grow. Children attend Jigsaw daily, Monday - Thursday and return to their own class every Friday.

In Jigsaw, children have the chance to develop lots of skills to help them in their learning and daily life. Our main focus is on managing feelings and emotions, using lots of different strategies, as well as social aspects such as making friends, taking turns and having conversations with others, especially during our daily breakfast session.

During the year, we will focus on the development of fine and gross motor skills, feelings and the emotional curriculum, social skills, circle time, relax kids, games and baking.

Our daily literacy sessions focus on spelling, phonics, word building, sentence to picture matching, comprehension, sentence writing, reading and sight vocabulary.

Our daily numeracy sessions focus on place value within 100, addition and subtraction within 20, multiplication and division, fractions, shape, position and direction, money, time, length and height, weight and volume.
