 Spotlight on SEND 

Communication in Print

What is Communication in Print?

Communication in print (CiP) is a computer programme that allows us to produce visual graphics that support reading.

Who is it for?

CiP is for all children who are not yet fluent readers. It is particularly helpful for pupils that require additional pictorial support, such as visual timetables or word banks.

How does it help?

CiP gives a picture clue to the child alongside the written text.  This allows them to 'read' and access vocabulary that would otherwise be too challenging for them.  This increases their independence and confidence in the classroom.

Where can I find out more?

Ask your child how their teacher has used Communication in Print within their classroom

Speak to our Head of Inclusion, Helen Jewitt.  You can spot Miss Jewitt on the playground before and after school or email her directly at inclusion@rounddiamond.herts.sch.uk

Key Stage 2 have been trying out some inclusive sports in their PE learning this term.

Pupil Voice

Joshua - I learned that the Paralympic sports are challenging but fun.  I would like to carry on with this learning in PE.

 

Beau - It actually gave me a rush of feeling thinking about how hard it must be for people with disabilities to play sports.

 

Sophie - I really liked it because it gave you the opportunity to feel how other people feel.

 

Abi - I enjoyed the Paralympic Badminton the best because it gave me a challenge to face. 

 

Eleanor - I enjoyed Goalball but found it quite challenging as I could only hear the ball coming towards me.

 

Talula - I enjoyed the challenge of Goalball as it also showed me how Ansh uses his other senses because I wore a blindfold.

 

Harry - I really enjoyed the games of Goalball as it showed me how sports can be inclusive.
