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. Every Friday, your child will receive a new reading book. Please encourage your child to engage with the characters and stories.

 

Homework

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.

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.

 

Cookery

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.

Home Learning

Each child has had a home learning pack sent home, there are some learning tasks within these folders. The best learning you can do with your children is through interaction and involving learning in everyday household activities. Some additional ideas are:

  • Look at books with your child.
  • Make a shopping list and go shopping with your child. Look for items on your list, name the items your child does not know yet, ask your child about the items in the shop, involve your child to pick objects and place them in your shopping trolley.
  • Cook with your child. Talk about the recipe and ingredients. Describe and comment on what you are doing and what your child is doing. This is a perfect activity to introduce verbs like: mix, pour, grate, melt, spread, etc...
  • Sing songs.
  • Make a ‘secret box’. You can decorate it together. Use play-dough to make objects or animals and place them in the box. Give clues to each other to guess what the other person made.
  • Play ‘Memory Game’. Place 5-6 objects on a table, name them with your child. Then cover them with a cloth or scarf. Ask your child to close their eyes, so you can remove one object. Check if your child can remember which object is missing.
  • Play ‘What’s in my hand?’ Ask your child to put their hands behind their back and place something in your child’s hands. Ask your child to describe the object (size, shape, feel) before naming the object. Take turns.
