Helping your child at home
We are aware that this is a difficult and challenging time for everybody. We want to support you to support your child as much as possible.
Your child's teacher is sending you emails each school day with work and suggestions to help you and your child structure their day. If you need any help with this or want to ask your child's teacher any questions they will be answering emails in the mornings (if your child's teacher is sick we will try to arrange someone else to send and respond to emails, but this may not always be possible, we thank you for your understanding with this).
We included a list of suggested websites and activities in your child's pack when school first closed. It is attached below. Since the time of writing that document, many more websites have started to offer free content. We will try to keep the pages here updated with all the websites and apps that we hear about. Please let us know if you think we have missed something. We are currently not endorsing any paid-for content. There is lots of good free stuff about.
Connecting with Us
Please send us photos of your child and/or their work so that we can see how they are getting on - we miss seeing everyone. If you are happy for your child's work and/or photo to be uploaded to our class pages, please let their teacher know. We have seen lots of great work already. Please check the class pages to see your child's work, and to show your child what their friends have been doing.
What is the government saying?
The government have made it clear that:
"No one expects parents to act as teachers, or to provide the activities and feedback that a school or nursery would. Parents and carers should do their best to help children and support their learning while dealing with competing demands."
They also have advice for how education can continue at home to fit in around your other responsibilities, the advice is split into different sections for children of different ages. We hope that the work we are setting your children also respects this guidance.
