This SESE/English resource is aimed at pupils in middle/senior classes or SEN pupils. It is based on the pupil’s knowledge of units of different types of houses. It’s aim is to support class work being done on an SESE geography theme of work on houses and homes. The pack contains 17 individual cards, four per A4 page. The pupil has to use a clothes peg to identify the type of house pictured on each card from the three suggestions given.
Cut out all of the 17 cards in the pack and laminate them individually. This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but who understand the differences in types of houses. Therefore it is a way for them to demonstrate this understanding. It helps to develop language and is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what topic we were currently working on.
Activities such as these were also used as Independent work completed by SEN pupils in their work station.
