School Closure - Home Learning Zone
We know that missing school isn’t easy for your children —or for you. But we also know that there are simple ways to turn unexpected time at home into exciting opportunities for children to learn, think, and grow.
We have put together some ideas and some links that we think your children will enjoy and should be able to be completed with little or no adult support. However, it is always fun to learn together!!
The EYFS Team
We hope that these ideas will help you to support your child in continuing their learning experiences at home. We would like your child to be able to show their fantastic learning when they return to school. This can be through a scrap book, journal, diary, photographs and pieces of their writing. We also ask that if at all possible you please upload at least one photo/video per day to EExAT to enable us to continue to monitor your child’s progress from home.
We will be checking this regularly. We hope to see lots of the suggested activities, as well as your own ideas.
Sending lots of well wishes to all families, we are looking forward to seeing you all back at school soon.
