I understand that some of you will be unsure of how to structure your child's 'home learning' day during lockdown and I would like to reassure you that there is no right or wrong way.
At school we alternate between a Maths focus and a Literacy focus each day and the activities uploaded to Seesaw will reflect this. We have 15-20 minute focus session (either Maths or Literacy) each morning between 9-10am and a 20 minute Phonics session between 10-11am. We also have a 20 minute topic based session after lunch and then we have some fun, play-based learning for the rest of the afternoon.
Please remember that as long as your child is safe and happy and accessing our class Seesaw page daily that will be enough.
