Coronavirus - Advice for Parents
March 26th 2020
Dear Parents and Carers
Firstly, I hope you are all safe and healthy. Secondly, I trust you are finding the daily contact from your form tutors helpful. This is a really good way of keeping contact with you all and for any questions you may have, to be answered.
If any family is experiencing financial issues, or circumstances have changed, please let your tutor know, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. We may be able to help you with completing a free school meals application and/or supplying food vouchers.
So far your son/daughter has been provided with ‘hard copies’ of work to complete. This will soon run out. I cannot see school restarting in the next 3 weeks either, so I also believe that we should take this opportunity to explore different ways of learning that suit individual young people. So, divide your day into 2 halves.
Exercise – start the day with Joe Wicks 30-minute workout
Literacy Planet/Boggle (or English work on the KS3/4 blog site)
My Maths (or Maths work on the KS3/4 blogsite) or Science work
Creative time: this could include;
researching & cooking a new dish for the family
making cakes for the family/community
setting up a herb garden
sowing seeds for a vegetable patch
creating a blog/diary of your activities that you can look back on over the years and remind yourselves how we all got through Coronavirus
Below are further details of resources freely available to enrich your day.
