Parents/Carers,

 

First of all, thank you for finding the time to read the information on this page. Below are some tips and pieces of advice to make Home Learning easier and less stressful. We are all navigating unchartered waters right now, so be patient with yourselves and with your children. Your children may be feeling unsettled due to change in their routine and the uncertainty that surrounds them. This ‘unsettled-ness’ may display itself as challenging behaviour or your child may become extremely talkative. Do your best to reassure them, speak to them about how you can all stay safe – washing hands and staying indoors, steer away from the scary news and aim to put a positive spin on it all – the Earth is healing from all of the pollution and you get to spend time together as a family.

 

Tips:

  1. From Monday-Friday, aim for your child to wake up at the same time every day. They should get washed and dressed for their day at home. This will help them to be in the right frame of mind for their Home Learning.
  2. Have a space for your child to complete their Home Learning, preferably the same space every day. Avoid children working on the sofa or on their bed or a place where they rest.
  3. Encourage short and regular breaks during learning. At school, the children are working for no longer than 20 minutes without a pause. This pause might be getting a drink, going to the toilet, staring out the window. It is all normal, I promise.
  4. Do not worry if you do not know the answers. For most of you, it is your first time teaching at home. It is normal to make mistakes. It happens to the best of us and you’ll learn from it for next time.
  5. No one expects you to fully replicate the school day. That would be impossible and an unrealistic expectation. Do what you can, when you can and the best you can. That is more than enough.

 

Be patient with yourselves and stay safe,

Miss Ellis
