Home Learning Advice and Support
This section of our website provides resources to support your child's learning if you are self-isolating at home. The resources provide a mixture of activities to support:
It is important to maintain all 3 of these areas. To support emotional well-being, we strongly recommend that you establish a clear timetable that suits your circumstances but allows you to maintain a shared routine. Routines will ensure that everyone knows what is going to happen and will reduce arguments about what to do and when.
A possible timetable for a key stage 2 pupil might be:
Exercise or physical activity
Simple daily activities - times tables, simple sums, flash cards, reading book, information book research, handwriting, spellings, book, study/revision guides, write a story/report/poem
Help to clean and tidy your home e.g. wiping the table/ doors. Wash the dishes etc.
Online learning activities – see Year Groups and Activities website for ideas.
Help to clean and tidy your home e.g. tidy your bedroom
Creative or quiet time activities.
No electronics or TV
Read a bedtime story or share your ‘Story of Today’ to review the main things that have happened and your ‘Story of Tomorrow’ so that you know what is going to happen the next day.
For those children who follow the daily schedule and don’t argue!
This is simply an example of what you might follow to keep a structure under these extremely unusual circumstances. Whilst we would normally break up the day by going out and about to grandparents, shops or the park, this may not be possible during the coming weeks. What we do know is that structure and routine are really important in maintaining emotional and physical well-being of everyone involved.
