Outlined below are some ideas for things that you might like to do with your child at home:
Most of the pupils who use an Ipad and Symbol Talker to aid their speech now have the app on their Ipad so please use every opportunity to use this to support their communication – ask what day it is, what is the weather like, how are they feeling, what are their favourite things? They can use the Ipad to tell you all these things.
These are some of the songs we are currently using in class which the children will recognise and join in with:

Please refer to Early years pdf for activities resources and links suitable for our Science Week Diversity topic that can be done at home.
Encourage exploring the outdoors in the community. This could be anything from local parks to the streets around your children’s houses. Get involved simply by going on a nature walk, exploring science related events and activities in their local area, or visiting places such as museums or science centres. Some of our activities are quick and easy to do as fun outdoor challenges too: http://library.crestawards.org/ go to the Primary resources
or use resources such as: http://bsa.sc/oxford-sparks
Try and experiment at home, spark mealtime discussions around Science and Technology. Try and make it as low-resource as possible. It can help if it’s something the children have tried or seen at school first, so they feel like ‘experts’ when they do it at home with family, allowing them to lead the learning.
As well as this pack, there are always lots of other useful downloads for take-home activities, such as:.http://education.gov.scot/parentzone/Documents/IamaScientistMar16.pdf copy paste this into your browser ,its really great or download it straight from the School website
