Back To School Story
Click here to see our story about going back to Brecknock. It’s perfect for children returning (or thinking about returning) back to school following the wider reopening of the school. It’s full of information about the virus and about all of the changes we have made in order to keep everyone safe.
Home Learning Organisation
Please click on the link below as it explains how we will be organising home learning during the school closure:
Where can I find work for my child?
Click on the year group to find daily work. Click on one of the subsections (Reading, Writing and Maths) to see a list of additional websites and tasks.
Is there any guidance from the government?
The government have brought together an initial list of free online educational resources to help children to learn at home. These websites have been identified by some of the country’s leading educational experts and offer a wide range of support and resources for pupils of all ages. The government states that they may be useful for parents in considering how they could support their children’s education, but they should not be used in place of existing resources. So, please do continue to use your child’s year group page as the main source of your child’s learning from home and supplement this with the list above.
When should my child be working?
It might help the children to have a timetable you follow each day (similar to what they would have in school). It will help you too! Here is a daily timetable that can be easily adapted for children of all ages. If you would like one already completed, click here (there’s also a weekly timetable on page 2 that can be adapted). It might be a good idea to start the day with a PE lesson. Joe Wicks is delivering a class at 9am every week day o his Youtube Channel. If this isn’t for you, perhaps try some yoga, mindfulness and relaxation designed specially for children.
