It has been a very unusual end of the school year this year! The recent school closures, partial return and uncertainty around September have been difficult for everyone, but can be particularly unsettling for those with additional needs.
I have loved having the chance to see some of you over the last few weeks, either in person or virtually! I love hearing how you are getting on and look forward to September when we can all be together again! We are busy working on our exciting plans for learning in September and have lots of things in place to help support you when you come back. Some things may be a little different but lots will be familiar. Whether you have loved learning over lockdown or have found it tricky to get motivated, we are ready to support you in September wherever you are at. Try not to worry and enjoy your summer break.
I have collated various links and resources to offer support - some related to Covid-19 and the wider measures in place, some related to returning to school. I will keep updating this as more resources come through, and I hope you find it useful. If there is anything specific you would like me to provide, or you need any individual support to help you and your child at this time, please email me at email@example.com and I will be in touch.
Lots of places have collated lists of links to online provision.
The most comprehensive I have found for SEND needs is at Chatterpack.
SENDSupported are one of our SEND partners and are providing weekly newsletters with ideas and advice. Click here and sign up to receive the emails.
Twinkl are making their resources available for free during school closures. Use the twinkl code CVDTWINKLHELPS on twinkl.co.uk/offer for free access, and download their SEND School Closure Home Learning Pack for a wealth of resources.
Key Stage 2 are using Google Classroom to set and upload work. If you have any difficulty getting on to that platform, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and your query will be forwarded to your class teacher. Google has the ability to type with your voice, if that will help your child to complete their work. Click here for guidance on how to do that.
Key Stage 1 classes are uploading videos and tasks on to their pages on the website, which are accessible for all children so if you have a Key Stage 2 child who may like to watch a familiar teacher reading a story or get some activity ideas, then feel free to look at the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 Year Group Blogs.
All of the links on this page were checked at the time of publication but I can't guarantee they will remain active.
As with all resources, they will need viewing by adults first to check the appropriateness for the age and stage of your child.
If there are any problems with links or resources on this page, please let me know.
