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.
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. Every Friday, your child will receive a new reading book. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories.
Some pupils will receive homework in English and Maths to support their learning. If your child is finding homework a challenge please come into school so we can discuss it together.
P.E. lessons are on Wednesday afternoon.
Swimming sessions take place on alternate Wednesdays 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.
We do cookery every Tuesday morning. Please let us know if your child has any allergies.
Cookery lessons focus on independence skills and learning to cook for ourselves.

Cookery: Autumn Term
This term we have been working on our independent skills in cookery. We chose from a wide variety of fillings to make our own sandwiches, somebody even chose cheese and jam together! We weren't sure about it but he said it was delicious!
Some students chose to make beans on toast and were very careful in opening the tin and heating the beans up on the cooker. Yet again the results were delicious leaving empty plates all round.
Pumpkin Picking and Carving
Clyde Class went out on the minibus to The Pumpkin Patch in Hightown and had a busy morning choosing their pumpkins. They were very big and very heavy! Then when we were back in class we set about the task of scooping out the seeds and carving our pumpkins.
