Juniper Base

In September 2019, we opened our resource base, now called Juniper Base.


The nature of the children in the resource base will have a need which falls under the Social, Emotional and Mental Health category. Our teaching team will support children as individuals and in small groups using learning experiences designed to help them make sense of the world and learn all the things they need to have successful lives ahead of them.

Talk about your day.


Share reading books together. Don’t forget to use Bug Club or Get Epic for lots of online books!


You can also login to Prodigy to practise your maths skills. We have been learning some new phase 3 sounds – you might practise reading and writing with these at home, particularly these digraphs: oo ar or ur

The Resource base will learn the skills they require through child-led topics selected from the curriculum maps across the school.

Juniper Base background

We have been thinking about specific emotions in more detail. Last week we looked at ‘anger’. We listened to the story ‘Angry Arthur’ and thought about different strategies we know for helping to calm down.


This week we have been looking more closely at ‘happiness’. We have been learning the song ‘What a Wonderful World’ and have made our own book version. We will be thinking about ways to spread kindness and make others happy.


Christmas has hit Juniper Base this week! We have been busy decorating and have enjoyed becoming Santa’s Elves!
