Student Homeworking Ideas

In this section...

During the school closure your child's teacher will be contacting you weekly with ideas for activities you could be completing at home. They will also have sent you any programmes they are currently working on. 

Many of our pupils cannot do written work and it would not be useful for them to be sent this type of work. For those who can undertake simple worksheets we also know that there is a limit to the quantity it is useful for our pupils to do.

It is extremely useful for young people with learning difficulties to practice their skills through practical tasks.

At the bottom of this page there are some homeworking ideas.
