Home Learning March 2020
Following the announcement from the Government that all schools will be closed from the end of Friday 20th March, please find the information below and on the school year group tabs from this page, to help support you and your children whilst school is closed.
Staff have put together home learning packs for your children to access in the next 2 weeks. In the packs you will find literacy and maths activities for your children to access, all of the things in the pack have been covered in school already. Packs will be made available after Easter; instructions for how these packs can be collected will be sent nearer the time.
We will continue to update this section of our website throughout the school closure. You will also find links to staff reading stories and yoga activities from Sophie, who works with many of our children in school.
Healthy Minds are focussing on reaching out to young people via their website and facebook page and are putting daily activities on there for young people and children to do as they understand that this period of isolation can affect young peoples’ mental health. They are also asking young people to send in blogs about their experience of being in isolation. Please see the website for more details: http://www.timeoutcalderdale.co.uk/coronavirus.html
