Valley College Pace 2 Home Learning Tasks

Please try to complete some tasks while you are at home to support your learners independence

Learning around Valley College is based around Preparation for Adulthood, Citizenship and Employment (P.A.C.E.) With this in mind we want you to practise independence skills with your learner within your home environment.

Advocate/ Learner Note: Sometimes it is useful to have visual prompts to help learners with tasks. I have included links to appropriate websites which may help with each task.

Here are some examples:

  • Make a hot chocolate
  • Make your lunch
  • Make your bed
  • Hang up your clothes
  • Sorting clothes into lights and darks
  • Ironing (with support)
  • Washing clothes
  • Washing up and drying up
  • Set up shop – practice purchasing items in your house using real life money!
  • Setting the table
  • Sweeping / hoovering
  • Learn to use the microwave / toaster
  • Learn how to get dressed independently
  • Practice telling the time as accurately as you can!
  • Make a shopping list.
  • Learn your address and important phone numbers

Feel free to write or draw a diary of your time at home during this period

I would be really grateful.

Best Regards
