This is a strange and challenging time and we are all experiencing a new way of living and learning together.
I hope that the nurture materials that I will put on the website over the coming days will help you with ideas of how to support your children as they work through the learning materials given from class teachers.
If you are all well, it is very important to have a structure in place. Get up as you would do for a school day, make sure everyone gets dressed and eats breakfast and have a plan of action for the day ahead. Routine will help you to hold on to some stability and remember to ration your energy.
If you/your family are well and in accordance with current Government guidance, make sure you include time to be outdoors – walking, games, birdwatching, the park, anything. By sticking to a routine during the school week, weekends will mean more. Stick with the outdoors stuff as much as possible while it’s still possible – it’s really important for physical and emotional wellbeing.
My working days are Wednesday and Thursday and I will be available by email on these days between 9am and 3pm, should you have any questions or need some help. I will do my very best to respond by the end of the next working day.
I hope you and yours stay safe and well.
Please stay in touch.
