With all the concerns over the coronavirus outbreak and how this might impact schools and your child’s learning, we wanted to offer you some ideas to help you continue their education during school closure.
We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy and so we have prepared perfectly matched content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support.
For independent learning and games, we recommend using Classroom Secrets Kids (kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/).
Packed with fun and engaging content, this online learning platform will guarantee to keep your child learning independently.
For more practical resources and worksheets, we have included a learning pack perfectly matched to each Year Group content. With a range of resources, these packs will help continue the learning inside your home.
We also have our School Learning Zone with carefully selected resources mapped to different subjects across the National Curriculum.
Power of Kindness Calendar
As the UK faces a global coronavirus pandemic, things can feel a little uncertain and even overwhelming. But, during these difficult times, one thing is clear: small acts of kindness make a big difference. The power of kindness calendar helps children and young people learn about and carry out kind acts. This would be a lovely thing to do over the Easter break.
