Home Learning Packs

If your child is at home, you will have received a Home Learning Pack. This contains a range of different activities that you can complete with your child. The packs have been designed to match the curriculum offer in school and there will be a range of sensory and physical objects, as well as ideas and instructions for you to follow. 

Your child's learning is best supported through frequent repetition and the packs are designed to help you do this. We suggest that you use the pack frequently throughout the week and repeat the activities on offer. You should look out for similar behaviours and actions performed by your child each time. 

If you have any questions about the Home Learning Pack then please contact Helen on the details above.
