Welcome to Foxes home learning activities!
From Monday 23rd March we will be putting suggestions on this web page to support our children and to ensure they are able to continue with their learning. Weekly tasks will be set as well as ideas for accessing web sites, keeping fit and having fun! We understand that many parents will be working so we have not suggested a timetable but please use what we put on as a guide for possible activities. Play times and practical activities like cooking together, craft and den building are still important too! We would love to see what your child is doing so please share any photos, completed work, questions or concerns on our email. At this unsettling time it is even more important to remember to be patient and kind towards each other and recognise that children, as well as adults, may be feeling anxious and in need of an extra cuddle.
We are hoping to put on vidoes to interact with the children and keep a sense of community and belonging for all Foxes.
We hope to see you soon,
Very best wishes for a safe Spring/Summer.
Mrs Humpleby (School Team - Mon/Tues/Wed)
