Thursday, 19 March 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

In these unsettling times, it’s even more important to support your child – but it might be hard to know where to start.

If your child is at home, it’s best to keep them occupied, making sure they know that learning is still important.

We have provided a pack for each child containing some age appropriate activities to get them started.

Here are some links which will also help you find appropriate learning for your child; a copy of this letter can be found on the school website so you can go straight to the links below.

  • Phonics play is also offering free access to their resources. All you need to do is go to their website and log in using the username: march20 and the password: home
  • Twinkl is offering free access for a monthto parents. Click on the link You will need to create an account and use the offer code  UKTWINKLHELPS; the resources are split into year groups and subjects so you’ll be able to choose what you would like your child to do.

On YouTube there are lots of ‘Jolly Phonics’ rhymes and you can also search Shonette Bason Wood and join in with her ‘Dough Disco’ and ‘Squiggle while you Wiggle’

We will also continue to communicate with you through Tapestry.

Finally, as always, encourage them to forget about what’s going on by reading lots of lovely books together – reading has been shown to promote positive mental health.

It is also important to try and keep your child/children active throughout the day to support their physical and mental health.

Please see the following link:

Joe Wicks Body Coach – this link will take you to some video clips showing 5 minute exercises that can be done at home and the children will be able to show you lots of yoga positions that they have learnt at Nursery.

We will continue to send additional information via the school texting service and school website as more resources become available.

We have included in your pack a palm cross so the children can be reminded about the importance of Holy Week and Easter. These have been blessed with holy water by Father Pat. God bless and thank you for your support at this very difficult time.

With every good wish,

Mrs Ryan

Deputy Head
