Kingfishers Home Learning
It is time to start our home-learning journey together.
As Kingfishers, we have always been a strong team and now is the time we really need to pull together.
Miss Hughes, Mrs Gregory and Mrs Postlethwaite are here for you and will be setting learning everyday for you to complete at home. This is a new setup for all of us, YOU included and we want it to be as easy as possible for you to access these tasks and enjoy doing them.
Here are a few tips for the next few weeks:
It is important to keep your skills up-to-date and FRESH, alongside also learning new things and we would suggest to...
- Organise your day or week in advance.
- Make sure you get up at a reasonable time (before 9am)!
- Get dressed. As much as staying in pjs all day sounds amazing, it makes you feel sleepy, lazy and unmotivated.
- Eat a healthy and fulfilling breakfast- something to get your brain cells working!
- Drink lots of water. Stay hydrated!
- Arrange your day carefully- making sure you're reading for 30 minutes AT LEAST! Remember what we always say- reading feeds your imagination.
- Complete your daily tasks from the school website- you'll find these in the list on the right hand side. There will be specific instructions- sometimes asking you to complete some work on j2e- we'd love to see what you've completed and provide you with some feedback on your work.
- Smile and be kind. This is important! :-D
- Try not to be anxious about everything that is going on in the world- maybe start a journal where you could write down/draw pictures of positive things from your days at home.
- Make sure you talk to your family (brothers and sisters included!), set a block of time in the day where everyone parts with their devices and have an old-fashioned chat.
- Take time to do things you don't often have time or energy for- cooking, playing board games or card games, practising a musical instrument, gardening, learning a new craft, writing letters or postcards to family and friends, drawing pictures for family, learn a language... the list is endless.
We will be thinking about you everyday and can't wait to get things back to normal.
See you all soon,
Miss Hughes, Mrs Gregory and Mrs Postlethwaite
