Home Learning Activities
Hello pupils, parents and carers,
I hope you are all well at this time. I will be posting some activities over the next few week to help keep you occupied, alongside all the physiotherapy activities / exercises that you are doing and the equipment that you are already using. There are a few ideas below:
1. You can make playdoh with someone at home.
2. Tune in to 'Singing Hands' on youtube - I have put the details in a separate post.
3. Share stories together.
Our sensory story this term has been 'children around the world' and we have listened to music, played instruments, tasted or smelt different foods from Canada, Australia and India. You may be able to continue with some of these activities. Alternatively, these are links to some Australian and Indian short stories on Youtube:

More ideas will be posted soon to keep you busy and learning in our time apart. In the meantime, stay safe and look after yourselves. Please take photographs that we can share when we are back together again.
We now have a class email address if you would like to tell us what you have been up to or if your parents need to talk to us. Here it is - firstname.lastname@example.org
