Home Learning

Things are very different this term as we continue another Lockdown and spend time away from school. Please rest assured we will do everything we can to support you and your child during these times. You can always contact me via School Dojo or by my email address l.harding@royalcross.lancs.sch.uk

Those requesting more hard copies of work packs, please let me know and I will get these sent out to you. The website will continually be updated with ideas of activities you could do with your child at home. These will often be linked to what would have been our topic in school "Once Upon a Time."


I realise that this is a difficult time with many of you having multiple children at home to home-school. Please do not feel under any pressure to complete these tasks. As mentioned before, these are there to help and support you, if you so wish. What is more important than anything in these early years is to support your child's language development. Talk, play games and read to your child. Do this as much as possible - it is vital in your child's development and you will be supporting them in so many more ways than sitting and trying to get them to complete formal work. Some of our children are just not developmentally ready for this.


For each fornightly topic I will upload an overview of learning and activities you could do with your child. Please see the PowerPoint Link below for this. Again, please feel free to complete as much or as little as you can manage but please send me lots of photographs in via Dojo of anything you do, so I can  have a look at the exciting things you have been doing. There will also be extra links to activites linked to the story for those of you with a printed. Those without a printer can request the hard copies from school.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you can see my video, reading the stories to the children, linked to the theme for that fortnight. The Powerpoint also contains links to videos of the story and a BSL version.

As always, do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like further ideas, or some more focused, formal work for your child - especially during these difficult times.

Look after yourselves
