We hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

Our term hasn't started the way we would have liked, but we will get through the next few uncertain weeks the way we have done for the last year... TOGETHER!

 

When the children are in school we will be continuing to work on their personal learning outcomes (PLOs) and keeping our routine and learning as 'normal' as we can possibly make it.

 

For when the children are at home we will be setting home learning activities and posting videos of activities via EFL.  If appropriate we will also post or deliver work or equipment to support the children.

 

We completely understand that these are difficult, trying and tiring times for everyone so please do not feel pressured to complete these activities, you know your children best and you need to do what is right for you as a family at home.

 

Don't forget to keep uploading photos and videos onto EFL to show us what you have been up to!!

 

Please contact us via our class email if you have any questions or need support purplefrogs@kingsbury.lancs.sch.uk

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We understand that these are uncertain times that we are experiencing and we are here to support you and your families in any way that we can.

 

We have emailed out a list of activities that can be completed at home along with useful websites and information.  This is in no means a 'to do' list as we know you will have lots of great ideas and you know what works best for your child. Please do not feel that you must do these activities, do whatever you feel is best for you and your family at this very challenging time. 

 

I will also be emailing and posting videos of Attention Autism, Sensory Stories and any other ideas that you can watch with your children or have a go at yourself.  Again we do not expect you to do this, we are just providing ideas which may help.  Please do not feel that you must do these we don't expect you to try and re-create school at home.  

However, We would love to see what you are all up while at home so please send photographs let us know how how you are getting on via our Evidence for Learning app! 

 

Please stay safe and take care, we know how difficult this time is for everyone. Please you need any advice please do not hesitate to contact me via the purple frogs email address. We miss you and look forward to seeing you all once this is over.
