1W Home Learning
Dear Parents/Carers, In light the government's decision to close schools due to COVID 19 please use this page to support your child with their learning at home.
How can you support your child at home?
Keeping your child's brain active is really important when they are not in school and there are lots of fun ways to learn at the same time too! I am hoping to keep this page updated with lots of fun ways to learn at home with your child.
Enjoy the tasks as much as you can! Have discussions together about the tasks set and work together to create memories. Make the most of being at home together take part in some creative learning.
Please do not feel you have to complete everything in the pack. I have included some links to educational websites to support your child in their learning too.
The most important thing is to keep happy, keep smiling and keep yourself fit and healthy!
Take care of one another and see you soon.
Mrs Wardell, Mrs Donohue and Mrs Grattan
