Active learners and SEND

These are suggested activities for our active learners and SEND pupils, please do not feel you have to do all of them, you know your child's needs and the support they would be getting in school so please use as necessary:

Family activities - this changes daily and includes online classes for music, drama, science and phonics, webcams for zoos, space and museums to visit from home and resources including SEN games, stories and craft sheets.  Click todays activities and then filter by age and free only.
