VIOLET CLASS

Violet Class teaching staff have been busy finding and creating activities for you!

 

Click on the links below to explore and try some…

 

  • Here is a sensory story about the seaside – if you aren’t able to go in person this year, perhaps this will get you in the mood! Play some lovely music and watch a video of the beach.

  • No class Zoom this week as school holidays begin on Wednesday.
    Stay safe and have a lovely summer – can’t wait to see you all in the Autumn Term.
  • How about having a look at some of the other areas on the website – Gold class activities will be suitable for Violet class pupils too- and the sensory, creative and music areas also have LOTS of great ideas – have a browse and see what you can find!

 

 

  • There are some fantastic free resources online for ICT use with mouse / touchscreen / switch or eye gaze:

I have tried a few new ones recently- why not try some at home?

  • Kay sings the Big red bus song- what actions can you do?

 

  •  This Wednesday we have our Zoom meeting at 2pm as usual. We are hoping to say goodbye to Ezra as he is leaving Violet class at the end of term to move to a new school close to where he lives. We will all miss him enormously but wish him all the very best.
  • If you are able and have time, perhaps you could make a farewell message / card for Ezra and hold it up at our zoom meeting? If you would like to send these into school afterwards, we will make sure they are sent on to Ezra.
  • Tessa and Kay will be phoning each of you this week to make some suggestions for summer activities to do at home which are related to your child’s Individual Education Plan (IEP).

 

 

 

 

 

  • Have a go at making a story, download the App for free.  We plan to use this in school. If you have the App we can share our stories!  Give it a go!

 

Kay & I did some great training on Thursday: Special Olympics GB Motor Activity Training Programme (MATP). Take a look!

Your task is to work on a physical challenge for your child! We can discuss this in this weeks ‘Class Zoom’ – and then to find / make something to cheer individuals achievements in our ‘Sports Day’ the following week!! Are you up for the challenge!! GO TEAM VIOLET we are ALL stars!!

Again we’re looking to incorporate this into our learning on return to school.

 

 

  • Kay’s Hello song for lockdown
