The FAB

(Facilitated Activity Base)

 

The activity base is set up to meet the needs of many children across the school from those with specific technical weaknesses to children with SEN. The provision is a nurturing environment which is designed to allow children to develop as competent and independent learners. As an inclusive school, the children identified for interventions access the Facilitated Activity Base for sessions each day within a small group and then return to their mainstream lessons. This develops their confidence to join in and learn with their peers.

The sessions

 

Fine Motor Skills group

 

Fine Motor Skills are essential for performing everyday skills like self care tasks (fastening clothes, brushing teeth, using cutlery) and academic tasks (pencil skills of drawing, writing and colouring, as well as using scissors to cut). A child’s self-esteem can suffer and academic performance can be compromised without the ability to complete these every day tasks.

 

Within the FAB, children have the opportunity to develop their fine motor skills where activities are set up to enable children to practice some of these life skills and academic task. Some activities include: threading and lacing, using tongs and squeezers, manipulation games, construction games, pencil skills practice and crafting.

 

Facilitated Play

 

Children with language delays are at risk of difficulty with social skills because their play skills may be limited. Early intervention can help children learn play skills and prevent future social difficulties.

 

Support staff within the FAB promote, model and reinforce children which effectively encourages play skill development. Activities are selected to encourage verbal interactions and children work towards a common goal such as building a structure with blocks or creating a collage using art materials.

 

Speech and Language Group

 

Speech and language is important because it enables children to express their wants and needs, thoughts and ideas, develop their use of language in writing and engage in successful interactions with others.

 

Children, who access this intervention, have opportunity to develop their speech and language through labelling objects within their environment, describe actions and events within a story and answer questions.
