WE ARE REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL WHEN WE RETURN TO SCHOOL NEXT WEEK!
OUR FIRST TOPIC IS 'COME ON AND CELEBRATE!'.
HAVE YOU CELEBRATED ANYTHING SPECIAL SINCE WE LAST SAW YOU?
Welcome to our page of activities which are aimed at supporting our children with Special Educational Needs to manage this time away from our normal routine. However, any child is welcome to access these resources if they will find them useful.
For some of our children, this period away from school is going to be an anxious time. However, the anxiety can be eased a little by setting up a clear timetable of activities to follow, giving each day structure and familiarity.
Please find below an example of a timetable template that could be used and some visual timetable cards that are very similar to the ones used at school.
Further fun activities that help develop areas such as reading, fine motor skills and self-regulation will be added regularly. Please do not hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or need further support. We understand that this will be a challenging time for mums and dads as well as our St Anne's children so please remember that you are not alone and that we are here to continue to support you.
If your child is finding their year group tasks a bit too challenging, do get in contact with their class teacher for support. Alternatively, why not try the activities from the year group below. Your child may feel more confident with these and find success in their learning.
In previous newsletters from Integra, there has been a link to SEN learning resources. Please do have a look at these resources and ideas if you haven't already to support you with learning at home. https://www.integra.co.uk/home-learning/sensational-resources/
'BBC Bitesize daily lessons' is an excellent resource which gives 3 structured lessons each day. Please do give this a try if you would like some further ideas to support your child at home.
South Gloucestershire is providing a SEND helpline for parents to ring if you are feeling anxious at this time of transition back to school or if you have any questions relating to Covid-19. It is staffed by the Inclusion support service, the behaviour support service and educational psychologists.
Parents can contact them on
SENDCOVIDenquiry@southglos.gov.uk or 01454
The telephone helpline is available between 9 and 1 on
weekdays (except Bank Holidays) but parents can
leave a message or email in at any time.
We aim to get back to parents within 48 hours. Any
questions posed to this helpline will be used to inform
an FAQ section on the South Gloucestershire website.
