You will find my recommendations for activities that you can complete with your child during the school closure via the Google Drive link below.  I have included a range of activities including ideas for fine motor work, physical development games as well as letter and number formation guidance.

Google Drive: School Closure SEND Activities

I have also compiled some links to supplementary online activities that you may like to try in previous posts below.

I hope that these activities will be useful to you and your family.

Best wishes, Mrs Mullaney

You will find my recommendations for activities that you can complete with your child during the school closure via the Google Drive link on the main school’s website. However, below are some supplementary activities that you can use at home to promote the emotional wellbeing of your child.  These may be especially appropriate if your child has special educational needs.  Best wishes, Mrs Mullaney
