Coronavirus – A Book For Children by Alex Scheffler
This book, by Alex Scheffler, explains Coronavirus in a child friendly way. It explains what Coronavirus is, how it affects people, the impact it has had on society and the emotional impacts of being on lock-down.
Feel free to download a copy and read this with your children.
While school buildings are closed, we encourage your children to access this at home to continue regular reading. Follow the link for instructions of how to access this resource.
Parents’ Info Reading Pro
From Monday 20th April, teachers of Yellow, Green and Orange classes, plus upper school classes, will set home learning tasks via Microsoft Teams which can be accessed by the children through their Hwb accounts. Instructions for logging into Teams can be found in an earlier post on this blog and all children have been given their Hwb log in details.
Suggested activities will be set through daily or weekly ‘timetables’ but these can be used flexibly. Whilst we would encourage as many children as possible to complete the ‘Daily Basics’, all tasks are optional.
Individual teachers will communicate further details through Teams. Thank you for your continued support.
