Welcome to Cairngorm

General Information

We ask parents and carers to return the home/school diary each day, as this will enable the class teacher to provide comments and information about your child's day in school. If there are particular things you wish to be informed about, please speak with me.

 

Individual Education Plan (IEPs)

This plan sets out educational targets that your child is working on for the term. There is a section in the plan which provides parents and carers with activities or tasks you can do at home to support your child's learning. Plans are updated each term and sent home.

 

Reading Books

All children and young people are encouraged to engage in reading and develop a love of stories. We have a wide range of reading books, sensory books and big books to support the learning styles and levels for each child.

 

P.E.

P.E. lessons are on Wednesday afternoon.

Swimming sessions take place on alternate Fridays at The Meadows Pool in Maghull, or for some of our students, on Friday mornings at the Hydrotherapy pool in Rowan Park.

During our P.E. sessions we discuss the importance of keeping fit and the affect it has on our bodies. We look at ways we can keep healthy through a balanced diet and regular exercise.

 

Cookery

We do cookery every Monday afternoon. Please let us know if your child has any allergies.

Cookery lessons focus on independence skills and learning to cook for ourselves. We appreciate if parents can assist with the cost of buying cookery ingredients by sending in class funds each week.

On Wednesday afternoons we have had Taekwondo lessons with our coach, Warren. We are currently working towards earning a yellow stripe on our belt. We have been developing lots of skills including balance, accuracy and stamina. We have also been learning how to use different types of blocks.

                              Halloween

 

We had lots of fun at Halloween, dressing up, playing traditional games and carving pumpkins.

 

                                     Cairngorm Bakery

 

Every Thursday, we have been making and selling garlic bread in school. We have learnt to do different jobs and know the importance of washing our hands and keeping our workplace clean. We have had great reviews and feedback about our bread from staff around the school!
