Why not get creative and make some NHS pebbles to support our fantastic health workers. Send us some photos and we’ll add them to our website.

Our children are living through history right now. Creating a time capsule for memories to look back on in years to come would be a fantastic idea.

We have added a download below of a pack that can be printed out and filled in. It also gives other ideas of things to include with it.

Covid-19 Time Capsule Booklet

Each day Teachers will be setting a new task for pupils to complete.

You can find these uploaded in the tabs below each day.

A Typical Day

Please ensure you prioritise your child’s well-being, first and foremost. This is an uneasy time for them so please make sure you spend time making sure they are reassured that everything is ok. Use some of this time with your families to do things you don’t usually get time to do, like crafts, baking and playing traditional games. It is important that your child is still given a sense of structure, so make sure they get up and dressed as normal and try and limit as much as possible technology for gaming. Here are some things we suggest you do;

· 20 minutes reading/discussion about book

· Times table activity

· Completion of maths or English task

· Complete daily task from the school website

· Spelling (phonics) practice

· Handwriting practice

· Work on project (this could build over several days/weeks)

· At least 30 minutes physical activity Be Active Be Healthy at home Inmans

· A cooking/craft activity (this could build over several days)

· Chores (one to keep parents/carers sane)
