Dear Endeavour Class,
Above you will find daily ideas and tasks for your child depending on their year group. There may be links you will need to access for them. As this is such a new arrangement, please let me know if there are any access problems to the external websites by using the class email.
Some advice for teaching your children at home...
Gather as many different ideas as possible, but the key is don’t think you have to replicate school ... you don't need to.
Homeschooling will look different in all families, but the best thing is to be adaptable and flexible, and remember to look at the big picture, not the small circumstance of the moment!
It’s good to get into a routine, but don’t force it. All of our usual routines are up in the air presently, and it’ll take you and your child time to settle into a new routine. Give them more time initially to just have fun. We all need a bit of fun in these days! We’re likely in this for the long haul, and after a few days, the children will be looking for some more routine.
*Remember, it’s all about learning, not lessons*, and you can learn in many different ways. Let the children use this time to explore areas of their own interests. Learning about something you’re interested in is always fun.
Also remember, everyday will be different. Some days the schedule will work, others days it won’t. Some days we’re motivated, other days we’re not. Sometimes it’s better to change the schedule for the day and just go and do something fun.
Remember the class email sent out to you where I can receive a weekly email from you letting me know how you're doing. I do hope you have an enjoyable week!
