Lockdown - Term 3, January 2021

 

So we begin another phase of lockdown.  For some, this may be a very unsettling time.  I will continue to post useful information for our SEN children and their families on this page.  If you need support or advice, please do not hesitate to contact me: b.metcalfe@villageacademy.co.uk

SEN Resources for home

Firstly, a big well done to all of you.  I have been so impressed with the work that parents have shared through emails with both myself, Mrs Deysel and the class teachers.  I want to just remind you, that what you are doing is enough.  You are raising your children at a time when they are trying to process what is happening to their world.  Whether it be taking time to talk to them, spend time outdoors, making and creating, baking or just relaxing together, these are all great ways to promote positive mental health, education doesn't just have to be completing a maths activity or researching a topic. 

 

Keep up the great work and keep sending in photos of the activities your children are enjoying.

 

Mrs Metcalfe (SENCo)
