Additional Needs Home Learning

Welcome to the Home Learning Zone for those with additional needs. 

 

On this page, Mrs Holmes will be adding items for those who may want some additional support for their children with Additional Needs, for example Speech and Language, Autism or gross/fine motor skills activities. We want to ensure that the children are supported as best as possible during this tricky time.

There are many different areas identified with different activities to download.
