Motor Based Learning
Penn Hall School offers a Motor Based Learning programme for pupils in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. This follows the principles of Conductive Education:
help me do it by myselftreating the whole child not the disability
Motor Based Learning programmes are offered throughout the week. These programmes include Sit/Stand, Plinth, Mat, Mobility and Fine Motor tasks, which also form an integral part of the whole school day. Each programme contains a high percentage of material drawn from the Early Learning Goals for the Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum requirements for Key Stage One.
Curriculum material is delivered through a multisensory approach. Programmes promote an active way of life and develop self-realisation of what the child can do. The children are taught via a holistic approach and thereby learn the connection between language and movement.
