This month our focus has been welcoming our students back to the classroom and learning about our Mental Health and Well-being. We have been taking part in lots of 'Over the Rainbow Month' activities, designed to promote a healthy body and mind. We have taken part in team sports outside and in class yoga, we’ve worked as a team to build dens, have been to visit out new forest school, completed art projects and enjoyed lots of cookery and sensory activities. We have been learning about healthy eating, personal hygiene, kindness to others and building friendships, We have also learnt about our different emotions and feelings, with a focus on how different strategies that can help manage our well-being and Mental Health. We had lots of fun designing and making our own worry monster sock puppets and balloon blob stress balls!
We ask families and carers to return the Home School diary each day, as this will enable the class staff 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 the class teacher.
These set out the priority educational targets that your child is working on for the term. IEPs are updated each term and sent home. If there is anything that you would particular like us to be working on please just let us know.
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 style and levels for each child. Unfortunately we are unable to send reading books home at the moment due to COVID 19 restrictions, but there are lots of free online books which we also use in school, links below.
We kindly request that you send in £2 a week. This contributes to any weekly resources that class might need such as cookery ingredients or class snack.
