Parent SEND Questionnaire
SEND Support - A Note from Nichola Jones (Assistant Director Inclusion, SEND and Wellbeing)
I hope you and your family are well. I’m getting in touch to invite you to take part in our short survey to share your experiences during lockdown and tell us your views on the support you have received from different education services.
Please complete one survey for each child or young person with SEND. The survey is anonymous, however you can choose to include your contact details at the end if you would like to be more involved in shaping future SEND services.
Please feel free to forward this email on to other families of children and young people with SEND.
Thank you for taking part. We really value your feedback in helping us to monitor and continually improve our services for SEND families.
Please note that the survey will close at 12 midnight on Monday 13 July 2020.
With very best wishes,
Assistant Director Inclusion, SEND and Wellbeing
Next year, our curriculum is having a few changes! We will still be doing our Project (IPC) lessons but with a greater focus on 6 skills and goals.
These are Independence, Resilience, Co-operation, Communication, Respect and Thoughtfulness.
Your challenge is to design a new logo that incorporates all of the lessons that we cover within our project lessons (Geography, History, Science, Music, Art, Design & Technology and ICT) and the 6 skills and goals mentioned above.
As the majority of your learning is online, and you may be spending your free time on iPads, phones and games consoles, we thought we would send a message just to remind you of the importance of staying safe online.
This week is half term so check our activity of the day folder for some fun activities for you to try at home. We are still in work this week so some of you will be getting phone calls from us, which we look forward to very much. Enjoy the sunshine but make sure you read the sun safety guide. Keep staying safe and have fun!
On Friday 1 May, we want everyone to enjoy a fun-filled day in pyjamas celebrating stories and reading - and it couldn't be easier to join in!
As part of Pyjamarama’s festival of book-filled fun on 1st May, they have got loads of brilliant Pyjamarama activities to help you celebrate wherever you are - from colouring and crafts to puzzles and drawing.
Pobble 365 is the home of 365 images (one for each day of the year) that will spark your creativity and imagination.

There are questions about the image, story starters, sentence challenges and drawing activities. Use them as they are or as a starting point for something even bigger.

Hi Year 4,
Hope you all had a lovely Easter.

You will also find links to websites where you can access online classrooms and daily lessons, so please go and check them out.
We will continue to call home this week to see how you are getting on and hearing about the lovely things you have been getting up to.
We miss you, so continue to stay safe so hopefully we can see you all again soon.

Why not try baking some of these delicious sweet treats. Have fun measuring out the ingredients then why not have a go at writing out the instructions for someone else to follow.
Use 2 hands, make it harder and only use 1 hand or show us your skills. Use a ball, rolled up socks or anything you can safely catch. There’s no time limit. Mr Henningham has given a great example on Timberley’s home page. We can’t wait to see yours...

Hope you all have a lovely Easter, enjoy the sunshine ☀️ stay safe and don’t eat too much chocolate
It was lovely speaking to some of you today and hearing about all the wonderful things you have been up to (baking muffins and biscuits, playing football, shaving your hair 🤭 splashing in the paddling pool, reading, times tables, learning Greek).
I know some of you may be struggling a little, missing school a little and missing your friends but you are all doing the best you can and you are safe and that is the main thing. So keep going and hopefully we’ll all be back together soon enough.
Love the Year 4 team xxx
