Weekly Activities


In this area, you will find weekly activities PowerPoints with lesson ideas for the week. Please do not worry if you are unable to do the activities at home- we can use these ideas when we return to school!

Each activity is planned to support the development of your child's targets. There are targets for all six areas of learning, with one particular area being focused on each week. These are only ideas and can be adapted at home, depending on the resources available. 

For more ideas, refer to the 'Targets' area under Dosbarth Oren.
