Over the past 6 months RTMAT have been working to develop our students Literacy levels. This has been identified as a barrier to their progression both academically and in their broader life skills.
We have set up a Literacy Focus Group involving key staff and together are developing a whole school strategy.
We have a child, now in Year 1 child that is non-verbal, oxygen dependent with a tracheotomy and tube fed. He also has joint hypermobility.
2x key staff (who are with him all the time) were fully trained by Health to be able to act as 'first' in case of medical emergency (and see to all daily medical needs) and 3x staff trained to support in an emergency.
I am a SENCo in a primary school.This is a resource that is easily available to buy on the internet, with many links to research if a search is done on the internet. This resource was recommended at an AET training session and by the County's Communication and Interaction Team. The resource helps teach social interaction and supports the pupils' emotional responses to situations.
The question prompt worksheet supports pupils to understand various question stems. The pre-learning vocabulary resource allows pupils to learn the meanings of the words which come up in the activities, and uses visual images to support their recall of them.
This resource will enable pupils to find out about Emily Wilding Davison, a suffragette who campaigned for equal rights for women. The lesson includes activities for pupils to compare protests and demonstrations from the early twentieth century to now.
This lesson plan has been adapted to support pupils with SEND to get them thinking about why asking questions is important. The plan outlines the activities and learning outcomes supported by our other Asking Questions resources, also hosted on the SEND Gateway and at www.parliament.uk/teach.
