General Resources for Home Learning

Introduction 

If your child is in self-isolation for any reason. Here are some resources they can use. These are not the resources for lockdown learning- head to spring 1 Home Learning.  These are only to be used if your child if well enough and your whole family has the space and time to do this. Do not feel pressured and please focus on staying well!

If the whole year group is taking part in home Learning there will be a more formalised time table and we will release information on a specific part of the Reception page.

Home Learning Resources

The Oak Academy

Kids Cosmic Yoga

Netflix -Story Bots and Team UmiZoomie. Cbeebies(Iplayer) - Alphablocks, Number blocks - all things you can watch that can help with maths and English skills.

Organising your home learning

Try to organise set times of the day to do short lessons. Only do an activity for maximum 20 minutes and two learning activities is enough. Try to put it just after a larger day event- e.g. have a short lesson just after getting dressed, having breakfast or having lunch. 

Wellbeing

Make sure to look after yourselves and keep in touch if you need us. Looking after your family should be the priority and don't do any school activities if you are not well enough. The NHS has some good tips for wellbeing too if they are helpful. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/stress-anxiety-depression/improve-mental-wellbeing/
