After reading the government briefing this morning there has been a support package put in the place for families with SEND children. The
money will help low income families with
seriously ill or disabled children with the cost of
equipment, goods or services from washing machines to sensory and educational equipment. The grants are typically worth £400 to £500 per family.
Families can find out more and apply directly for
grants from Family Fund.
I have included the family fund eligibility criteria below. If you think you qualify and need any help apply please dojo me!

I have found a wonderful free sensory kit to download-its a great way to keep children stimulated, focused and calm in the current lockdown situation when you are not able to get out and access activities as usual. I will try to upload the link for the kit on the website but it will also be available via classdojo if I'm unsuccessful.
If you are on facebook try to follow Nessy Uk as they are uploading free maths activities and resources.

May the 4th be with you. Sorry we have Star Wars fans in my house ( Thank goodness for Disney +)
I really hope you are all well and managing to stay positive at home.
Today I have added a pdf file called Lucys in Lockdown. Its a wonderful storybook produced to support social, emotional and mental heatlh during lockdown. Its designed for parents to read to their children and hopefully have some discussion around it.
Last week on Dojo I posted that I had managed to get free subscriptions to Nessy Reading and spelling. I have included the link to their webpage . Please please please contact me if you'd like a login for your child, it is a brilliant resource for all pupils not just SEN.

I am so proud of all the childen and everything they have achieved in such a short time. Over the next two weeks ill keep posting to keep in touch and uploading any fun activities I see that you might like. I have attached a scavenger hunt for you all to have a go at.

I’m adding dojo’s for all the lovely learning, videos and photos that you’re sending. Keep sending them to your portfolio to earn lots of dojo’s.
Have a wonderful day
I have attached a document from our Educatioonal Pyshcologist , its a leaflet regarding Covid 19 designed for children. Hope it helps.
Wednesday 1st April
Ive found some brilliant videos on youtube for sensory chalk walks. These are a great idea to regulate sensory processing or simply to get active. Try doing one of these before children start their school learning or just after lunch, you may find that children concentrate better after this. We tend to do sensory work at the beginning of the day or just after lunch and we find it really helps children settle so they are in the right mindset for learning.

I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather and spending lots of time in the garden if you can. Today Ive attached a document with lots of hints, tips and activities to support pupils with SEND during this period, I really like the occupational therapy activities ( they are perfect for my particularly bouncy 6 year old!!!)
I have also included a weblink with a list of all the websites that are offering free subsctiptions/memberships at the moment. If children need a change from the acitivities set by classteachere its useful to have other options. Hope you all enjoy.

Today is all about self -care, after a difficult day yesterday for everyone I wanted to focus on our mental health. I have attached a link to youtube which takes you to a guided mindfulness meditation. I hope you enjoy!
I have uploaded a visual timetable including pecs symbols that may be useful for you to use. Structure and routine are going to be vital for your children to make sense of this difficult time. We joined in the PE with Joe on youtube this morning and it was the perfect way to start the day.
