Hey guys! So a few worried mama’s messaged last week – they were worried they were not doing enough… take it easy! Relax, you aren’t the only one. Believe me this is a new for all of us teachers, parents and kids…
To make it a little less overwhelming I’ve made up a sample timetable – it includes the resources that are up on our website – phonics play app, Hamilton maths and literacy packs (with resources) and some other ideas that are easily doable at home (like help making lunch) and arts and crafts – i’ll pinch a few ideas from pinterest and put them up on our stories!
It’s also super helpful for the kids to be involved with planning their timetable it gives them a sense of ownership rather than a set of rules that will basically ruin their free time at home!
When making this timetable ensure the kids are working towards an end goal or reward (this can either be daily or at the end of the week). It doesn’t have to be pricey. So maybe they have to earn a star each day and then on Friday if they get all five stars they get a special treat… chicken n chips take away/ or a trip to the local sweet shop/park – or whatever they like (provided we aren’t in lockdown)
