Firstly, this format of learning is so new to us and we want to support you as best as we can, we have a class email address if you need any support, ideas or clarification. beeches@firstname.lastname@example.org
We sent home writing books so children can write their answers in the books rather than printing lots off. You can write a date and title such as counting 2's tasks. KEEP THE TASKS SHORT AND FUN!

Writing linking to their topic focus
Topic- find out what your child wants to learn and this will be the best type of learning or something that inspires you,
have projects weeks/days where you are finding out about different times in history, places, artsisit (have a go at their style of art), famous people in past and today.
Regular physical activities is very important, listen to music and talk about the style, learn new songs, learn sign language.
sketching the view from your garden, write letters to friends or family even the children at school,
recording work doesn't have to do on paper, you could type it up and email us, make a PowerPoint, take photographs or even record your learning.
This is the perfect time to spend time with your family, talk about what you use to enjoy as a child, look at old photo album, or when they were younger, read books together, watch your favourite film/cartoon when you were younger. Teach your children to cook and do jobs around the house.
