Autumn 2021

Dear Parent and carer,

Please find below some home learning suggestions for your child whilst they are recovering and isolating following their positive covid test.

Please only work if your child is well enough. We understand that your child may be experiencing symptoms and needs to rest and recover.

Should your child feel well enough or be symptom free then we hope the guidance and activities will support you during this time.

We recommend you choose activities that both you and your child will enjoy together and don’t feel under pressure to complete activities that one of both of you don’t enjoy or will find stressful. The important thing to remember is not to put additional stress on yourself – no one can be a full-time teacher, childcare provider, parent and worker all at once.

Please remember we are still here to help and please contact the school if you would like to chat with a member of the team.

Very kind regards

Mrs Haydon, Mrs Boyle, Mrs Smith, Mrs Gibbons and Mr Archer.
