SEND Home Learning

Hello everyone and welcome to the SEND Learn at Home page - I will update some information as new resources or links become available, but some will stay in place for you to work through with your children.  You can look at any area to see if there are interesting resources available or games that your child would be interested in engaging in - remember that for some children, repetition is important to ensure that there is depth of understanding and that is when learning is at its most powerful.  So, please let your child explore interests and activities they enjoy.
Please enjoy the activities and the resources and do not hesitate to contact either myself, your child's class teacher or key person if you have any questions.

The Power of Play from Great Ormond Street Hospital offers lovely accessible play activities. Play is a child’s natural learning tool and “whether they’re battling boredom, pining for the playground or generally unsure about the current situation, play helps children be more resilient and feel better.”
