Home Learning

During this time, we all need to remember that everyone’s health and happiness is the most important thing to us all. Yes we are providing some activities for children to do at home but we must remember that this is not home schooling. We are experiencing a worldwide emergency and we need to keep perspective and look after one another as best we can. This is, at best, home learning and in reality it’s just us all trying to do our best and keep some momentum going. 
As always, you know what will engage your child and if you decide they will not engage with a certain activity and would rather they access some of the activities through the websites we have suggested or that they just want to play in the garden, bake, paint, play games or watch TV then that is your choice and we fully support that.  The last thing we want is for you to feel guilty or stressed about not completing all the daily activities. 
We know that it is not possible to facilitate home learning with children (especially primary aged) whilst trying to work from home yourself at the same time. Please go easy on yourself and remember that when we all get back to normal we will pick up everything in school that your child needs. 
Our ideal for children at home and key worker children at school is: 
Some reading every day (there are lots of live reading sessions taking place and look out for teachers reading stories on seesaw) 
Some English- free writing, letters to friends, comics etc 
Practical and hands on Maths – this can be helping with baking, garden work etc
Physical activity every day 

Some topic work and creative work
