Our Classes

Dear Parent/Carer,

The reality of educating your child at home for an unspecified period during the coronavirus pandemic can be daunting, to say the least! It’s important to remember that nobody is expecting perfection. This situation is new to many of us – and we may never have considered home educating before.

It’s okay to have doubts and make mistakes, but having some structure to your day could help you and your child through the weeks ahead.

The timetable below is a suggested schedule for your time at home. It is by no means prescriptive. Please feel free to mix it up to suit your normal routine and to suit your family’s needs but try to complete as many of the activities as you can.

Other useful website links are provided on the school website under the Our Classes tab. Below is another useful link containing information and resources for parents: https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/parents/wellbeing-parents/school-closures-category-free-resources-parents
