This page will be updated regularly over the following weeks to help keep things fun and interesting for you and your child whilst our school is closed. Your child should have received a learning pack from school that has an exercise book, a pencil and some ideas of work and activities to do with your child. If your child is in Year 5 or Year 6 they will have also received a Chromebook.
We are not expecting you to be a teacher at this difficult time. We are providing these resources just to give you some ideas to keep your child engaged and entertained. We know some children will find it extremely difficult to learn from home which is completely understandable. Please know that you are doing enough. You are loving your children and supporting them through this difficult time. Look after yourselves. Minimising stress is absolutely vital at a time like this for your own mental health. We are all in this together and we will get through it.
Here are some activities that combine life skills and traditional learning:
1. Reading – independently, reading to them or listening to an audio book.
2. Writing every now & then e.g. shopping list, letters to family members.
3. Practical, hands on maths: cooking, telling the time, counting coins.
4. Things to help develop fine motor skills: Lego, playdough, using scissors
5. Physical exercise everyday.
6. Some art or something creative – it doesn’t need to be guided, just let their imagination go!
7. Older children might like to start a project – research something and present it to the family e.g. design a new chocolate bar, design a new board game, find out about different animals around the world.
8. Younger children will love lots of imaginative free play!
