We are trying to make sure you have as many alternative options to use with your child at home as possible. Please remember it is important to tailor what you are doing at home to suit you and your child/children. As teachers, we are acutely aware that some children do not learn best when they are sitting, reading and writing. Lots of children learn better when they are ‘doing’, or learning through play or activities like baking. At the same time, your well-being is as equally important as theirs and what is important to us is that you are all safe, well and happy during this time.

The Hamilton Trust is a great online resource used by teachers and they have kindly made some of their units of work free to access during the school closures. We particularly like this e-Safety topic which you may find useful to work through with your child at home, especially as we are all doing so much online at the moment!
