There is also a daily plan with activities on https://www.twinkl.co.uk/home-learning-hub which you could use as an alternative to this, you just need to register.
There are lots of other resources out there; these are suggested as a routine programme that you can develop as suits your schedule and capacity.
From the 20th April, the BBC will be producing a range of programmes to help families with their home learning; please keep an eye out for these as they are likely to be very useful.
Staff are doing what they can to maintain contact with children, with phone calls home and home visits for some families. If you have any urgent issues, you can email [email protected] and this will be forwarded onto a member of staff.
Please remember that just like you, school staff are directed to "stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives". We are therefore required to minimally staff at all times. Staff also have families and are carers, and are therefore under the same pressure and stress as all workers at this time, with the additional stress that we are coming into work. So please #BEKIND if you need to contact us. We are all doing our best.
