FE – EL1

16th July 2020

As with the previous post, focus on creating and establishing your own daily routine over the next few days, using the following guidance (A lot of these tasks are ones you know or have already done.) The only change to the routine should be the three jobs your child does over the next few days. Try to pick three different ‘Helping in the home’ tasks to do daily in order to practise and increase in independence with different tasks:

Exercise: Begin your day with some form of exercise e.g. a walk, or use the  communication in print instructions posted previously. Aim to do this in the morning as your first activity if you can.

Helping in the home: Commit to helping out at home by doing three jobs agreed with your parents/carers e.g. washing pots (this can be adapted to a sensory activity of emptying and filling containers in a bowl of warm washing up water outside to prevent mess!) watering the plants, recycling the rubbish, making the bed. Use the enclosed Jobs list symbols and jobs around the house sheet to help you choose jobs that you will enjoy and are useful to your household. Remember they don’t all have to be jobs that take a long time just helpful to your family!. Choose three different tasks to the ones you have done over the last few days unless you feel you need more practise with a job in order to improve your skills.

Preparing food: Assist with making meals at least once a day by weighing out ingredients e.g. 75g of rice or pasta per person, peeling and chopping potatoes into quarters for boiling. Measuring out liquids for sauces.

Being ready for a new day: Use the communication in print prompts to do the following two things in the evening ready for the next day:

Set your clothes out ready which you will be wearing the next day.

Look at the facial expression board and decide how you have felt today. Why did you feel this way? talk to a family member or carer about their feelings and how their day went. Think about the things you are going to do tomorrow. Is there something you are looking forward to?

Try to do these tasks at similar times each day so that you are establishing a routine for yourself. This will also be excellent preparation for you when we aim to return to school hopefully in the not so distant future as establishing a routine now with simple expectations and activities will ensure a smooth and happy transition for you when you return to school.

This term we have been practising following instructions to make a range of snacks. At the moment it is good to be able to make tasty meals from store cupboard ingredients in order to limit our time in the shops. Please have a go at making this easy Spanish Omelette for a tasty lunch or tea. You can add any leftover vegetables you have e.g. peppers, mushrooms to make it extra tasty and practise your chopping skills. Serve it with a salad you have prepared.

Exercise : After following the communication in print instructions daily as you have been doing over the last few days, add two new exercises to the ones you have been doing. Make it fun for all the family and show them how to do the exercises so you can create your own aerobic class.

Preparing food: Continue to assist with making meals at least once a day by weighing out ingredients e.g. 75g of rice or pasta per person, peeling and chopping potatoes into quarters for boiling. Measuring out liquids for sauces. 

By now you should be able to help with increasing independence and help with preparing food by offering rather than having to be asked. Make this your daily routine so you frequently practising these skills of weighing and preparing food.  

Being ready for a new day: Continue to use the communication in print prompts to do the following two things in the evening ready for the next day:

How did you do in comparison to the first time you made it? Was is easier to do? Did it taste better?

Ask your parents or carers which jobs need doing around the house and make a list of three you could do in order to help them around the house. Use the symbols list as a starting point if you need to. Any jobs you have done before try to do more independently.
