Good afternoon everyone and hope you are managing to enjoy the sunny day in one way or another. It has been lovely to touch base with many families this morning and do keep in touch if you need anything.
A recurring theme during my phone calls with parents today has been worries that their children aren’t doing enough home learning. Please can we reassure everyone that the main focus at this worrying time is simply adjusting to a new normal. This, in itself, is exhausting enough at the moment. The wellbeing of your children – and you as a family – is our prime concern at this time. There are many things you can be doing which will help your children – identifying trees in the garden, building a den in the living room, baking, birdspotting – all of these are really valuable activities.
The theme of today’s webpost is suggestions to help with maths. Here are some ideas – they can of course be adapted to the age and ability of your child/ren. They are to be used if and when you wish. Enjoy!
