Recommended Reading List

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.
