Welcome back to Term 2!
We hope you enjoyed the half term holiday and had some fun together or managed to get some time to relax. If you have any photos you’d like to share on Earwig we’d love to see them. We are very excited about the new term which will be full of lots of different fun and interesting activities.
We will be continuing our theme of ‘Magic’ this term and will be using sensory stories, music sessions, sensory exploration and other experiences to immerse ourselves further into the theme. We will also experience and celebrate different cultures and festivals from around the world such as Diwali, bonfire night and towards the end of the term, Christmas. We are continuing to have weekly Bristol Bears PE, Music Therapy and Hydrotherapy sessions.
Our RSE focus this term will continue to be ‘Keeping safe and Looking after ourselves’. We will be using body awareness and sensology sessions to explore and learn about our bodies and the ways we can look after ourselves.
Swimming and Rebound
Weekly swimming sessions will continue to take place on Tuesday mornings. Your child’s swimming kit should include - swimming costume/swimming shorts, swim nappy, tegaderm (if required), 2 towels, shower gel/soap. We are waiting for rebound therapy timings to be confirmed but will send out more information soon.
Please use the home-school diary or email me with any questions and updates. If you need to speak to me for any reason please phone the school office on 0117 3533622 (Henleaze campus).
If your child is going to be absent for any reason we really appreciate an early morning phone call to the office by 8.30am and a message left on the answering machine, as this greatly helps us plan our staffing. Thank you.
Reminder of what’s needed in school
- Change of clothes kept in school, useful for any messy days.
- A supply of pads (nappies) , wet wipes and creams if needed. (We will write in your diary if these are running low.)
- Snacks and squash if your child needs these.
- Clothes that are appropriate for the weather, especially during outdoor learning sessions.
We will be adding photos and comments about what your child gets up to at school. If you have any access issues do let us know.
