* Your outdoor activity should take place in your garden or during your ONE trip outside of your house for exercise. Your indoor and outdoor activity could be linked to history / geography / science / computing / music / PE / art / design tech or food tech. Maybe try a different subject each day.

During this time, when children may not be in school, we have devised some suggested home-learning activities that you could complete at home to support your children’s learning, leisure time and routines.

  • For Parents/Carers: - Create a weekly timetable with your child to decide on which subjects to practice with your child each day. - Create a daily timetable. Routines are important for children.
  • Some suggestions: wake up, wash your hands for 20 seconds, brush your teeth and eat breakfast.
    Practise your timetables and read a book. Have lunch, complete a task from below and a short
    fitness routine. Play a game, free time, eat dinner, read. - Keep fit indoors. Create a daily fitness routine to complete with your children.
  • Some suggestions: 10-star jumps, 10 sit ups, 10 push ups, 10 squats
