The health and safety of the Barrow Hedges community is paramount and therefore there may be instances where children, although well in themselves, have to remain at home due to their family being in isolation.
It is important that children's minds are kept active and that education is of high priority. Any time at home should be spent productively so that children remain in the routine of learning.
For isolated cases of children staying at home, parents should access the relevant year group tabs. Here you will find ten days of activities - writing, maths and other opportunities for learning.
Please always remember that reading is one of the most valuable activities. Your child can never do too much reading! At Barrow Hedges we use Bug Club so this is a great resource to refer to. Your child should also have access to a range of books at home so we would encourage you to foster a love of reading in your child.
It is important to note that if it is your child who is unwell then they should not be given work to do. Rest and recouperation is a priority, with some reading if they feel up to it! If they are fit and well, but are still needing to isolate at home, then they should access the work, starting at day 1 for each subject.
There are ten days of work provided but children will start at day 1 of pack 1 and only complete work on the days that they are at home.
Activities provided are not precisely linked to what is being covered in class as, of course, this work could be needed at any time. However, activities have been designed to support key skills for each year group.
