Ms. O’Donovan 19/20


Hello everybody.

I would like to wish you all a very happy Easter. I hope you all get to enjoy some fine weather, and some quality relaxation time with your families.

We will be in touch with you again after the Easter break.

Kind regards

Dear parents and children.

I hope that you are all well and doing your best to keep the bright side out!

The SEN team will be posting suggested activities to keep you busy over the coming weeks. Please ensure that you visit ALL SEN teacher’s pages, not just the page of your own SEN teacher. We are working collaboratively.

I have compiled a list of suggested activities to develop fine motor skills. All the activities are based on items easily sourced around the house. Have fun!

If you have any questions about the activities I can be contacted on

Kind regards

Good morning everyone.

I hope you all continue to keep safe and well.

I am attaching a short document which outlines the correct procedure for following the Toe by Toe programme.

Toe by Toe


Below are a few ideas to keep up your speech and language skills development.

1. sh sound hunt – look for items around the house which begin with the sh sound. Practise saying the words using your best sh sound.

Try this tongue twister: She sold six shabby sheared sheep on a ship

2.Categories Game – name two related items, for example, “car and truck” or “table and wardrobe”, and ask your child to tell you in what way they are related. The aim is that they will practise naming the category to which these items belong, for example, vehicles, furniture, food, fruit etc. You can extend this game by naming three items, for example, ” carrot, broccoli and apple”, and ask for the odd-one-out. The aim is that the child will say why the item is the odd-one-out, and name the category to which it belongs.

3.Animal Claps – name an animal and clap out/ count the number of syllables in it. Examples are, “cat”, one syllable, “monkey”, two syllables, “elephant”, three syllables. You can extend this by asking the child to think of an animal which has, for example, two syllables in its name.



Hello parents and children.

I hope that you are all keeping safe and well, and that you got to enjoy some of the lovely weather we have had lately.

The SEN team are uploading some fun Easter-themed ideas for you this week. They cover a variety of skills, so there should be something within them to suit everyone.

Have fun with these Easter tongue twisters also!
