USEFUL WEBSITES

We have a school Pinterest page where you will find a wealth of activities for all areas of the curriculum and specific areas of development that you will be able to do at home with the things that you find around the house. These activities are great fun, but also highly practical and engaging. New content will be added regularly. Follow the link to Cedars Pinterest

 

Our Pinterest page also has some movement, fine motor and sensory suggestions. Tree Tops Children’s Occupational Therapy, who are employed by the school, will also be adding a list of sensory activities to their website. You will be able to find them here: Tree Tops
