I hope you are all keeping well and safe. I have listed some resources and an outline of the topics we would be studying at school at the moment. Understandably, you will probably have various activities for your child to do at home with the family and as we know family time is invaluable, however I have tried to provide direction and information about the topics we would be studying at school. As we do not know how long we will be closed or isolating, I have given an idea of how long children spend in each lesson in a typical school week:
Maths – 5 hours
English – 5 hours
Art – 1 hour
Music – 1 hour
Computing – 1 hour
Topic (history/ Geography) – 2 hours
Science – 2 hours
R.E – 1 hour
P.E – 2 hours
PSHE – 1 hour
I have weighed up the amount of time we have spent on certain subjects this year and have prioritised the subjects I think children should spend more time on at home. However, if the time that children are away from school is longer than expected, I will email some work for the other subjects.
Equally as important, I know that mental wellbeing will probably be at the forefront of everyone’s mind. For this reason, I encourage children to do exercise when possible (no reason why they can’t do laps of their garden as the daily mile every day), play games (board games, quiz games etc.), spend time outside and make the most of this unusual and unfortunate time by enjoying quality family time.
For most of the subjects, there are lots of free resources being offered by www.twinkl.co.uk. I can’t recommend this website enough. If you can, please do sign up for the free parent account and download and save some resources to use over this period. As well as lots of individual resources for various topics, there are also ‘School Closure Packs’ for each year group which contain work from every subject at the appropriate level.

If you have any questions about the curriculum content or need help sourcing resources, please do not hesitate to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and look out for weekly posts on the blog.
