Enjoying the Sunshine ☀️
Please remember that you are able to email me directly during this time. I really enjoy the seeing the emails, photographs and videos and am saving them all for us to share back at school (which hopefully won't be too long!) You can also ask any questions too and will reply as quickly as I can!

Having read many articles here are some tips for teaching your child at home:
- Family Meeting: Talk to your child about the coming weeks, find out how they would like to learn, what they enjoy doing and what they find tricky in school. Make a plan together.
- Schedule: This is not going to be the same as at school but try to build in some structure which includes time for learning/you working, exercising, eating and socialising (even if in isolation you can FaceTime your friends)!
- School support: this pack contains some information however school will continue to support learning remotely to the best of our ability.
- Learning environment: maybe writing at the kitchen table, reading on the sofa, science in the kitchen, exercise in-front of the TV (Go Noodle/ 5-a-day TV on YouTube), geography/science in the garden, etc. Changing environment will keep things interesting. If you live locally (and are not in isolation) then visit the woods and have your own forest school session.
- Incentives: at school we our class star charts, so why not carry on this tradition by getting them to draw and colour their own and give your child stickers as they move up their star chart! Mrs Wood has uploaded details about this under the 'Parent' tab!
- Take breaks: throughout the school day we encourage lots of breaks, children normally have an attention span of their age +2 minutes (3-4 years olds = 5-6 minutes!) so little and often is the best approach.
- Make it fun: You can follow your child/ children’s interests, for example if they love cooking they could read the recipe, measure out the ingredients, create a menu for lunch and write down your family’s order. Lots of maths, English and social skills developed while having lots of fun!
- Review-Revise-Reward: review with your child how things are going, revise how you could make the learning experience even better and reward yourselves for all of your hard work!
