Sensory sports activities for PMLD

This session has been developed to support and refine functional hand use and appropriate receptive and expressive communication strategies of students with SLD and PMLD through the medium of sport. The story uses repetition and rhyme to encourage early anticipation skills through changes in tone of voice. As you will see on the slides the part where ‘Ready set’ is repeated should start as a whisper and get louder and louder to support this anticipation. The story gives a range of suggested activities which can be adapted according to what resources are available in your setting.

The Haka: ICT, Drama, PE & History Topic

The Haka: ICT, Drama, PE & History Topic

This resource is a medium term plan for teaching the Haka. Rather than be delivered solely as a PE session this Medium Term Plan will demonstrate links with other subjects such as ICT, history and Drama. Using two example session plans, there are demonstrative links as to how assistive technology could be used during the session. This unit of work would work well around a yearly Geography topic looking at different nations of the commonwealth and with a different focus in each 6 week block. The sessions in this unit of work focus on getting the students to recreate the Haka (both dance and audio) and use ICt to record it for editing and to create a short video. Throughout the sessions there is some filtering of knowledge/history to do with New Zealand and the Haka. Would work well with a Primary school class or an SEN class.
