Welcome back to Term 2!
Welcome to Term 2. We hope you enjoyed half term and had some fun together. We are very excited to start the new term which will be full of lots of different activities.
We will be continuing our theme of ‘Magic’ this term. We will be using sensory stories, bucket time, cooking sessions, sensory exploration and experiences which will give us an opportunity to use our senses and immerse ourselves into the theme. We will also experience and celebrate different cultures and festivals from around the world such as Diwali, Bonfire night and Christmas towards the end of the term. We are continuing to have weekly Bristol Bears PE, Music Therapy and Hydrotherapy.
Our RSE focus this term will 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.
Hydrotherapy and rebound
Hydrotherapy will be happening weekly on a Friday morning. Please can you send children in with their swim kits, 2 towels, tegaderm and any other extras if needed. 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 with any questions and updates. If you need to speak to us for any reason please phone the school office on 01173533622 (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 continuing to add photos and comments about what your child gets up to at school If you have any access issues do let us know. We would love to see what your child has been getting up to over the summer if you could send us some photos!
