Pupil Passport - PMLD - senses

(0)
Here is a pupil passport template I use to support my PMLD students. Each year I receive multiple specialist reports for each of my students and share the information with staff working with my class. These passport cards are a very easy way to share the relevant info in simple terms for any staff member that comes into the classroom - So they will know easily how each student communicates, where best to place themselves should they be working with a young person with visual impairment for example etc. Easily add in the key information to support each young person and edit as new information becomes available. These have been helpful in supporting my students and staff and I hope you find them useful too.

Christmas No.1 - Music Activity
GO-TOGO-TO

Christmas No.1 - Music Activity

(0)
A fun musical freebie I made last year. Each class is to be given a classic Christmas song from one of the slides in the PowerPoint and then create their own music video or musical performance version of it. This was created with an end of term assembly in mind last year, so even when socially distanced in bubbles etc. all pupils could join in. Each slide has an image of a musician/band and is hyperlinked to their song on YouTube (right-click the image) this is for pupils to watch for inspiration. I recommend if pupils are making music videos you then link the pupils versions. Each class can then watch each other’s performances in their class or at an assembly and vote for their Christmas number one - not voting for their own performance of course! You can adapt this in many ways - as an intro to do live performances or perhaps use it for just a bit of fun for staff in the run-up to the holiday. Hope you enjoy!
