School Closure Information
Wednesday 19th May
Welcome to our School Closure Information Page. This is to keep all our families up to date with what we are doing to support you with your child's learning at home. We hope you will find all the information here useful-we will aim to update it daily so please check in regularly as we add more information so support all our children and their families.
NEW PAPER LEARNING PACKS
These packs contain English and Maths activities for each day-they are labelled so your child can see what they need to do. All children have been given work at their level but learning that has already been covered in class, so please make sure they complete it so they can keep their core skills of number and reading as sharp as possible.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need your child's login for Purple Mash, My Maths or TT Rockstars.
Top Tips for Parents
1) It may be tough staying in all day and you may be tempted to pop out for a while with the kids but PLEASE ACT RESPONSIBLY. If your trip is non-essential, then STAY IN.
2) Even though it's hard, try to limit screen time. Our online resources mean that children will be using devices to complete their learning, so where possible try to have breaks from tablets, phones and other devices.
3) Connect with friends and family in other ways, such as FaceTime. Some children may be worried about older relatives so, if they can see them and talk to them online, this will reassure them.
4) Some days may feel a little harder than others, especially if it's unusual for you all to be at home at the same time for longer periods. If people are getting a bit grumpy, maybe have a change of routine that day and do something that you will all enjoy, e.g. a favourite family movie, a board game
Most importantly, everyone at Castleton wishes you and your family good health over this difficult time-take care, stay inside and stay safe.
