Home Learning

It is important that children are kept in routine whilst at home. Here are a few suggestions how to facilitate this;

 

  • Set up a quiet space in your home to help your child focus. Somewhere where you and your child can work together so that you get the most out of their learning sessions. 
  • Put a structured timetable in place. Recommended time for this age group is approximately one and a half hours per day (see suggested timetable of activities below) Set up a 'Plan for the Day' with your child so that they know what they will be doing and when.
  • Limit screen time, try to build this in to fixed activities where possible e.g - apps for learning, part of a reward system. This will also help to keep children motivated and help them to appreciate their devices more. 
  • Ensure that children have opportunities for frequent active breaks throughout the day. 
  • Try to keep activities as practical as possible e.g - when learning about counting money set up a shop and use some pretend toy coins
