Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic Haytor View Community Primary School & Nursery has been advised to stay closed until further notice
Welcome to our Learning at Home Page
You will be aware that the Government has announced the closure of all schools in the UK from the end of Friday 19th March, in response to Covid 19. This means that from Monday 23rd March the school will be closed and children should remain at home until further notice.
Our best wishes go to those who are unwell or self-isolating, as well as those managing the changes and challenges that we are all facing as families.
On this page you will find links to suggested activities from class teachers, updated daily during the school week, that may appeal to you and your children while at home together. It is important to understand that these are not activities that we ‘expect’ to be completed, but activities which you can choose from should you wish.
In the face of so much change and uncertainty everyone in their homes, including our children, will be experiencing a range of feelings. These feelings are genuine and important to recognise and respect. They may see children keen to take part in particular activities one day or week, and less keen on another. As parents, you are best placed to sense what is best for your child, their well- being and the well-being of the rest of your family. Be assured that we believe that any decisions that you make to engage or not engage your children in any activities suggested, are the right ones for you and for them – as long as you are doing what feels right to you.
We would always encourage parents to avoid ‘battling’ to get children to engage with tasks or activities that don’t appeal at any given time, children will appreciate this and it may lead them to feel more comfortable coming to them at some point in the future. The media is currently awash with parents celebrating ‘all-singing, all-dancing’ learning sessions that they are having with their children, it takes strength and courage to ignore these and not let them shape what you feel is right for your child in your home. Be assured that you know what is best for your child. It is this resolve which will see your children’s subsequent successful return to school – happy and ready to learn.
So, as you click on the suggested activities on this page – be comfortable that:-
•> some might fit, and others might not;
• > they might just give you ideas of other things that you might do with your children;
•> you can listen to your child if they tell you that they’re not ready to do something;
•> you know your child best and you know what will support their well-being as a person and as a learner;
•> sharing time with your child doing anything, or nothing, is valuable and developmental;
•> you will make the right decision for your child, your family and yourself.
We’d love to hear from you about anything that you get up to with your children and equally about any difficulties that you may be having – getting in touch always makes us feel better. You can do this by uploading photos, messages or anything that you want to share from this page or by getting in touch with us by the usual means:- telephone, email or through the School Gateway.
Take care and look after each other.
