We know that home learning will have it's challenges, and that there will be good days and bad days. Please remember that we are not asking you to be teachers, you are a parent and what your child needs at this time is safety, security, support and love. When it comes to the home learning, establishing expectations and a routine are essential. This video from the Education Endowment Fund might be helpful in supporting discussions with your child and there is a ticklist that goes with it. It's not about completing pages of work or reams of writing, but keeping your child going with their basic skills, engaging their curiosity, awakening some new interests ... and having some fun and rewards along the way!
