Year 2 School Closure
Here is a link to a page on Liverpool City Council’s website about the new childcare hubs which are opening on Monday:
Covid 19 parenting Blog – This blog is written by LCC, the Early Help Team and has contributions from citywide partner organisations. This has some great tips and tricks on support available to you, home learning ideas, playing together, and most importantly managing your own and your children’s well being through a difficult and uncertain time such as this.
Here is a timetable that we have found that you could use to help your children stick to some routine. There are some ideas of activities that you can do for each slot and having this should allow you some space to work yourself also.
In Year 2 to help your child continue with their learning as best as possible during this time. We have sent out sets of work books covering Year 2 objectives. We ask you to work at your child’s pace, there is no expectation to complete all the work given and they may need support to complete tasks. We wanted to be prepared and give your child as much as possible so not to disrupt their education. We have tried to match booklets to children best as possible.
In addition to this, we have set this page with useful links, hints and tips that you can use at home.
