Foundation 2 - Ladybirds and Badgers
A very warm welcome to you all.
We recognise at this very difficult time that the children will have many concerns and worries about not attending school. They will be missing their friends and teachers. Adjusting to our current situation could be challenging for them to understand.
Learning can come from so many things; colouring, baking, talking, making things, playing Lego and reading are just some of these ways, but mainly we want everyone to be happy and safe. Please don't try to replicate a school day, instead, find activities that work for your child and your family.
You can keep in touch with us via Purple Mash. We love to see what you have been busy doing.
Mental Health and Wellbeing is very important. We hope the resources in the Wellbeing section on this page (and on the front page of the Home Learning section) will give you some ideas of how to look after your own and your child’s mental health and wellbeing during this difficult time.
Please take time out of home learning to have fun and look after yourselves.
