Hi everyone I hope you are all well. I thought you might be interested in this…
The Witherslack group have organised Sensory Circuits starting on Monday 11th May at 11am on Facebook with a 30 minute exercise based on sensory motor circuits to alert, organise and regulate sensory systems. These specially selected activities aim to organise, calm and engage your child for the day ahead.
This is perfect for burning off some energy, and a great activity for both young people and adults to kick start your week. So get limbering up, and tune in at 11am every Monday. Enjoy!
Here is another great resource for parents and carers to access a virtual support group for pupils with ASC.
I have been brave and set up a YouTube channel where myself and Mr Bolton will post videos with exercises, workouts, outdoor activities and things to do at home. Please like and subscribe. I have uploaded a video which is a simple workout suitable for all!! Please take a look and share around, we hope to reach as many as possible.
Hope you are all staying well and have had a good weekend (I know the weekdays and weekends all roll into one!)
All children under the age of 18 have the right to…
express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously.
This is really important at this stressful time. We, as adults, are finding the whole unknown situation tough and stressful. For our children, who may not fully understand what is going on, who miss their routine, their friends and ‘normal lives’ this time is exceptionally hard. It is important for them to know that it is ok to struggle, it is ok to ask for help, it is ok to express how they feel and have someone listen to them.
Take 10 minutes today to have a conversation with your child, ask them “are you ok?” and “how are you feeling?” Let them be heard.
Here are some good activities to do related to this right. Fun and educational! There is even a guided meditation on there.
If the PowerPoint says too large, you can still click the link on the blog post and it will open.
Keep smiling, stay safe and remember staff are here for you all!
We want to see you transform your loo roll tubes into engineering masterpieces!
Show off your engineering prowess by building a structure using cardboard tubes – you could build a bridge, a model building, a marble run, a miniature playground or any structure you can think of! You can also incorporate paper, cardboard and other embellishments too if you like.
