|Communication, Language and Literacy:|
- TEACCH Activities
- Reading and Phonics – Listening to Stories on Whiteboard, Comprehension Activities, Guided Reading
- Writing and Fine Motor Skill Development
- Speaking and Listening/Individual Communication Programmes
Please encourage your children to attempt fastenings etc. as this will support their fine motor skill development. Also, lots of communication is great. We are happy to provide visual supports that encourage and support further communication at home and extend each individual’s learning. Guided reading books will be sent home for each individual. These do not need to be completed every day, however, it would be great if you and your child could engage with them regularly. Discussions about stories and pictures are a fantastic way to develop understanding of text and to support communication and imagination.
- Sensory Circuits and Sensory Circuit Stories devised alongside the Occupational Therapy team to support the children’s learning and their ability to focus on activities. We use frequent movement breaks to support individuals with their concentration.
- Attention Everyone sessions are run daily. We have had support from the Speech and Language team to set this up within the classroom.
We can provide you with information for Sensory Circuits that can be completed at home. Please ask a member of the Primary 2 team.
