School Closures Week 1
Hello everyone! Half way through week one of home learning- I hope that you are all being well behaved for your parents and making sure you do at least a small amount of school work every day! The Easter holidays are still a holiday so enjoy yourselves and keep the reading and writing up! I will be ringing you all after the Easter holidays to find out how you are getting on - be good and keep working hard!
The Parents home learning page on the website has hundreds of resources on to help your child learn at home. We really don't want you to get stressed out about home learning these are difficult times and being stuck inside with your family for several weeks can be hard enough without arguing about school work. My suggestion- make a daily timetable- keep to short activities and keep it fun. I've put a suggested daily timetable below however do whatever works for you! I will re-post on here every week and if you are having any urgent problems then email school, or I will be ringing every home after the Easter holidays and we can chat then.

lides application to create slideshows(will need support with this) - or just pen and paper is fine!

Obviously you will want to change the things you do each day but having a structure to your day could help- people are advising to try and get dressed each day and keep active!

Keep safe and well, take care and I'll be in touch after the holidays. Miss King.
