Some children may find it easier to be in a school type routine and doing lots of activities however this is not for all children for every day as they may find they are struggling with Mum or Dad as a parent as well as being their teacher at home.  Please take each day as it comes and do your best.
 
* Designate a space in your house for home learning so children have somewhere comfortable and can get into a routine and safe space to work.
 
* If going online, to be aware of the sites they are accessing as well as being aware of any correspondence they do via email/messaging to their teacher.  (The children are not able to message each other, only their class teacher and me).  Any messages that are sent to teachers will be responded to within school hours 9.00 - 3.15 so please do be patient if you happen to email outside of these times, we will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.  This facility is for the children only and if as a parent you wish to contact a member of staff please can we ask that you do so via the office email in the usual way.
 
* If children are posting any of their work online to the platform please ensure they have gained your permission before uploading.
 
* As you can see from the timetable we would not expect children to be sitting at  home learning for 6 hours (the time they would normally be in school).  We suggest around 2 and a half hours of home learning split across the whole day.  Concentration spans and wriggly little people cannot sustain long periods of sitting still.
 
* Please take care of each other and do the best you can.  We are all learning at the same time here in this strange situation.
