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. 

Timetable

 

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.

To help your child continue with their learning as best as possible during this time we have set this page up with useful links, hints and tips that you can use at home with your children.  

The website Twinkl are offering all new users free ultimate access for a month. To use this all you need to do is to set up an account using the offer code UKTWINKLHELPS on the link  https://www.twinkl.co.uk/offer here you can download activities as well as guides and powerpoints which support pupils. 

We have been looking at these topics within our Maths/English/topic lessons.  

Project

English – Once upon a picture is an excellent resource for writing. It uses images to inspire and challenge pupil’s thinking. Each picture comes with questions that could guide children. You could even take this further and create their own stories using the image as a starting point for their adventure. These can be found at https://www.onceuponapicture.co.uk/ 

Pobble is another excellent resource adding a new image every day. This can also be used as a starting point for pupils allowing them to discuss or explain the image or can be used as a story start. Activities like this are also excellent at developing key skills in reading such as inference and deduction. This can be found at http://www.pobble365.com/ 

Reading  Children will all be provided with a reading book as well as their choice of library book. As well as reading this children should take the opportunity to discuss and review their book.

Mental health and Well being

Here is a resource that you can use with your children to start conversations about how they are feeling and how to manage those feelings.

RE

Palm Sunday marks the start of Holy Week, which is the most important time of year for Christians. The week is marked by key moments in the dramatic last few days of Jesus’ life on Earth, before his death and resurrection on Easter Sunday. Maundy Thursday commemorates the washing of the feet and the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles. This is followed by Good Friday when Jesus is crucified and dies on the cross. However, it is not his death that Christians celebrate, it is his triumph over death and his promise of new life, which is a cause for celebration. It is for this reason that eggs, bunny rabbits and daffodils are shared at this time of year, as they all symbolise new life. Please take a look at the age-appropriate video clips below for you children:
