A message from the SENDCo (Miss Cooper)...
Dear Parents and Carers,
Our SEND pupils may find the lack of routine tricky, but remember to have lots of movement breaks and fresh air as well as taking the opportunities for other types of learning and interaction e.g. cooking and board games.
Below are some additional resources that may help with home learning.
Widgit- is a sign symbol program, it can be used to write stories, give extra vocabulary support and create visual timetables.They are offering a free 21 day trial. (Communicate in print 3).You can build sentences with the words, think about who is doing what ?? It might be characters from your story you are reading in class.
Top Marks and Crickweb – have lots of games/ interactive activities and games to support different areas of learning.
If your child accesses Nessy (y4 to Y6) then they can continue to access this at home to support reading and spelling.
Don’t forget to practice your handwriting! Not just on paper, in sand, soil, flour, chalk etc Take a photo of anything you are proud of and bring it to show me when school opens again !
