Below are some activities for you to work through while you are isolating (as long as you are well enough to work). Please don’t do any of this work unless you are isolating and feeling well. If you’re ill and not well enough to be at school then you should be resting.

I will be providing you with lots of teaching ideas and information. Your children are very special indeed and I hold their well-being at the forefront of my mind. For this reason, take your time, try not to rush your child, take it at their pace and endeavor to make their learning as practical and fun as you can. In reception, we learn so much through our play! Have fun and your child will too.

Remember, each child is unique and at different stages in their learning journey. Take their lead and soar!

Let me know how you get on, either via the blog by sending a comment, or via email as photos are also welcome.
