We offer our pupils a high quality of education, accessible to learners of varied abilities and different learning styles, whilst taking into consideration their social, emotional, behavioural and mental health needs.
The school is designated for 232 pupils with learning difficulties, and SEMH needs. Many pupils also have Autism Spectrum Conditions and communication difficulties or ADHD.
Remember it's World Book day on Thursday 4 March. Take a look and see how we are celebrating for pupils in school or learning remotely.
Sensory activity - Get creative, make a calming bottle Take 30 minutes out of your day and try making something out of things you can find in your home. You will need: • A bottle of glitter glue • Empty water bottle • Warm water • Food colouring • Extra loose glitter Method: • First you'll need to fill a jug with some warm water from the tap. Add a few drops of food colouring until you get a colour you like. You can then pour the water into the drink bottle until it's almost full. • Next you can add your glitter glue! More glitter glue makes the glitter settle slowly and less glitter glue makes the glitter settle quickly. You might like to experiment with this until you get a consistency you like! • Finally you can add some extra loose glitter! Why not experiment and try putting toys or paper clips in your bottle and see what happens!
We are looking forward to welcoming our pupils back to Bower Grove School and re-opening classes from the week beginning 8th March. Some parents will have been contacted regarding individual arrangements. A letter has been sent to parents and carers.
World book day will be celebrated at school on Thursday 4th March. Pupils and staff in school will be invited to dress up as a book character with prizes for the best. Vouchers for the £1 books will be sent home for pupils. https://www.worldbookday.com/books/
Sensory Learning Activities - Get up and go!! If your struggling to get up in the morning and haven't got any energy. Try starting your day with a whole body warm up. You will need: x2 cones or two objects and a spoon and egg or small object you can put on a spoon. Place two cones (any objects) at either end of your garden or circuit space. • Run from one cone to the next. • Jump from one cone to the next. • Skip from one cone to the next. • March on the spot whilst counting or reciting your times tables. • Egg and spoon race from one cone to the next – repeat 3 times • Commando crawl to the cone and come back crawling on your hands and feet. • Curl fingers on each hand to form a semi- circle. Interlock the fingers and pull elbows in opposite directions for a few seconds. Relax and repeat 3 to 5 times. Remember to swap over hands each time. • Stand by a wall and push into a wall for 10 seconds – repeat 3 times. If you find it easier to watch someone else, Joe Wicks does a great whole body warm up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hozv0a23eKk
