General guidance for parents for working with children at home
- The new spelling day is now on Thursdays. You can complete your spelling quiz on this day and you will find the new spellings for the week in the 'Brain Warm Up' section. You might find that some spelling rules or words might be repeated as we found that the consolidation of the rules were necessary.
- Children thrive on predictability and routine. Create your own daily schedule around your own family – this has to work for you! Try not to make it too rigid and focus on ticking things off.
- Your daily routine could include school work, a bit of tv watching, reading for pleasure, practising a skill, drawing and colouring, getting outside where possible, chores around the house, cooking/baking, sewing, playing card games, playing board games, playing shops etc., a daily workout (healthy body, healthy mind).
- You may need to accept that your children are going to watch television or play on electronic devices more than you would usually allow, but please follow the World Health Organisation recommendation of no more than 3-4 hours per day.

Our Daily Prayers
These prayers are part of the children's school life and routine.
It might help for the children to continue to say these prayers at home as part of their day, to help with keeping routine.
The children may like to think about creating their own prayers too.
