Hello grown-ups of OLASJ,

I hope this post finds you well.

Are the files proving useful for you and your children? Is there anything else that you need? If there is, please drop me an email at: f1@olsj.org.uk and I'll do my best to source it for you.

I have uploaded lots of resources from Anna, our Speech and Language Therapist that you may find useful. These can be found in the Communication and Language folder, in the subfolder titled 'SALT Activities'

CAMHS have uploaded lots of useful resources to support mental-health and well-being. This can be found by clicking the link: CAMHS Resources

There are also lots of free resources to support children with SEN, available by clicking this link: https://www.elsa-support.co.uk/category/free-resources/

The British Dyslexia Association are also providing free webinars for parents of children from EYFS to KS5. You just need to set up an account to access them. This can be found by clicking the link: Dyslexia Webinars

Hello grown-ups of OLASJ

I do hope that you've found some beneficial resources in the files to help your children's learning at home. Please email me if you require anything that isn't in the file. I can be contacted on f1@olsj.org.uk

I have a few websites that I'd like to share that I have recently found, which you may not be aware of:

The first one is: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zh9v382

This has lots of resources which will support your child, including tips to support well-being, isolation inspiration and top tips

The second one is: https://senresourcesblog.com/

This has advice, learning activities and recommended toys, books and resources for children with SEN which is written by parents of children with SEN

Lastly, there is an app called visual2go, which is downloadable from your relevant app store. This lets your child build sentences using speech and symbols. It is very beneficial for if your child is struggling to communicate.

Please do keep checking the files as I do upload new documents as and when I find them

Welcome to the SEN Learning Blog 20.4.20

Hello all grown-ups of OLASJ,

We want to ensure that ALL children are supported during these uncertain times, particularly those with Special Educational Needs and additional needs in learning. With this in mind, we have created this SEN home learning page. While teachers are busy updating their own class blogs with weekly learning, we are conscious that your child may require additional resources to support their learning at home.

The files below have been categorised in to the 4 broad areas of SEN, as defined by the SEN code of Practice, 2014. There is Cognition and Learning (which includes poor working memory, dyslexia and mild/moderate learning difficulties), Communication and Interaction (which includes ASD and speech and language difficulties), Social, Emotional and Mental Health and Sensory and Physical (which includes fine and gross motor difficulties and sensory play ideas)

In each of these folders, you will find a list of websites that support each need and resources to support learning. These will be updated regularly-so please keep checking back! Please feel free to look in each folder, even if your child may not have difficulty in that area, as you may find resources/websites that will benefit your child. The resources contained in the SEMH folder may also be useful for any child who is finding the lockdown difficult and is becoming anxious

While school is on lockdown, we have access to Dyslexia Gold. This helps all children who have difficulty with Literacy, not just those who have Dyslexia. Please contact us if you would like us to organise a log-in for your child.

Please do email us if you have any resources and websites that could benefit other children. Likewise, if you require something that is not in the files at present, please contact us and I'll will try my upmost to source this for you. You can contact school on: school@olsj.org.uk or myself on: f1@olsj.org.uk.  These emails will be answered Monday-Friday between 8am and 4pm.

For those children that work with Learning Support teacher, Alison Brakes, and our Speech and Language therapist, Anna Pendary, I am in regular contact with them and can ask for support/resources on your behalf.

Regardless of the world we now find ourselves in, you are doing a fantastic job with your children and we are here to provide whatever support you need :)

Mrs Pegg.
