This is a pack of Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch resources I have used during a seaside topic with a mixed aged (KS1 / KS2) group of learners with autism.
It includes a planning sheet to think about the lighthouse keeper's cottage, differentiated TEACCH style structured sheets to support writing about the Grinling's cottage, and images of the cottage for pupils to stick in their books before writing about the cottage. There is also a word mat to support spellings and jog memories.
There is a mindmap type sheet to encourage pupils to reflect upon what the Grinlings thought about the naughty seagulls.
There is a symbol supported powerpoint about lighthouses and a lighthouse fact sheet for children to complete.
There are also differentiated grammar sheets for learners to decide whether to use 'and' or 'but' in a sentence.
Sorting activity, used as a workstation task but could also be used 1 to 1 or for small group work. Used to develop reasoning and reading comprehension.
Children sort fact cards into ‘truth’ and ‘lie’. Cards best laminated so they last - I blue tac the truth / lie cards onto 2 plastic containers to give more structure to the activity.
Two posters developed to remind pupils of presentation expectations for school work. Using a ruler for lines, writing and underlining date, marking own work in red pen, diagrams in pencil, etc.
General resource for secondary.
Storyboard - designed for children with autism to reinforce their understanding of the story. Children sorted the order of the text as a group before drawing their own accompanying pictures.
With my group of children (mixed aged KS1/KS2) I kept the text on the worksheet but I have included a publisher version so this activity could be adapted to a cut and stick activity, or children could write their own sentences.
Topic homework sheet
What do my family eat for tea?
Cut and stick activity - food groups, 'jobs' of foods.

As there is a starfish in the book, we also learnt about starfish, using a symbol supported fact sheet to answer reading comprehension questions (differentiated).

Cards giving a selection of situations, child uses a clothes peg to select the answer. Best laminated so resource is more durable. I use these with children who have autism but also suitable for KS1 or children with other SEN / SEMH needs. Can be used 1:1 or in a small group. Some of the answers I’ve had have surprised me, even when I know a child well - I’ve found this quite an interesting resource to get to know my pupils in most depth.
Poem with images as prompt.
For 'My Family' topic SEN Y8 - students who struggle to find information in text.

Very simple to encourage independent thinking. Cutting and sticking for motor skills.

Editable PowerPoint about Queen Victoria's life and homes. Designed for a Year 7 class of students with autism, therefore highly structured.
Activity to accompany the lesson is included, pupils are asked to use the internet to find out the date of given events in Victoria's life time, to write these on cards and then sort cards into chronological order.
Worksheet for pupils to match a picture of Victoria's various homes to the correct name.
'MindMap' style worksheet - pupils to use information gained from the lesson to complete facts about Queen Victoria.

Resources made to support SEN group with autism. We read 'Little Polar Bear' by Hans de Beer.
Colour cards are orange 'who' words to support Narrative Intervention.
Structured visual (TEACCH) included to support students to write about Lars and Henry's journey. This is coloured red as this covers 'where' words.
Will work equally well for children who are not using narrative intervention - in which case the word colours could just be random. Could also benefit children without ASD who struggle with working memory, attention or writing activities.

Resources created for an SEN group, aimed at learners with autism, mixed KS1/KS2, during an Indian topic.
Included are visual supports and structured activities.
As our topic was India with a Geography focus, the blockbuster game also includes land-form questions. Questions are very simple due to the needs of the group, questions also include questions about the identity of Jungle Book characters.
The Indian animals booklet is more of a 'tiger fact-sheet' to go with the 'Tigers' power point. I had planned to create a booklet about Indian animals but ran out of time on the topic.
These 2 Power Points were designed to accompany a 'Victorian' box, on load from a local museum.
The lessons were planned for a group of Y7 students, all with autism - therefore speaking, listening and attention skills were also targeted, together with more general social skills. Students also struggled with theory of mind / speech and language which the describing activity and game sought to target.
My young people really enjoyed these lessons and the activities were completed over several weeks.
If you are lucky enough to have a local museum which loans topics boxes then that wold be ideal, however the activities would also work if you have your own set of Victorian learning resources.
