In the event of a school closure we will do everything we can to ensure your child's education continues. Please take a look at your child's class page to see what work has been set by their teacher.
Here you will also find links and advice to try and stop you going stir crazy in the event of the need for self isolation!
This is a story generator to get you started if you are running out of ideas. You don't need to actually write the whole story, why not focus on describing the setting, the personality of the main characters, write the first part of the story then publish on seesaw for somebody in your class to finish.
Have a look at another county on Google earth. What do they make? What is their weather like? What food do they like to eat? What clothes would you need to take if you went on holiday? Are they famous for a sport? What wildlife lives there?
Perhaps you could write a travel blog or video yourself cooking a traditional dish. You could send postcards home or keep a diary telling everybody what you have seen or done whilst you were there.
Children can take their AR quizes during normal school hours, please don't use Google to find the AR school page because it will not work. You must use the link on the class page.
You can look up books you have at home or borrow from the library using the link below.
Some advice from families who home school their children.
1. Hold a family meeting
Talk to your children about this 'new normal,' and let them know that while they may be at home, there is still school work that must completed.
2. Create a daily timetable
It's important to have set hours for school, meals, chores and other daily activities.
3. Help children create a learning space
Help them create their own work space — at the kitchen table, on their bed, in a comfy chair in the living room.
4. Don't be afraid to bribe them
Some children are self-motivated but some may need time limits or incentives like, 'You need to finish ABC before you can XYZ.' It's much easier to accomplish what you need to first thing in the morning, before the whole day slips by.
