Supporting your child if you need to stay at home:


If your child has to be away from school for an extended period of time, but is well enough, here are some ideas to support their education at home.


Every day we suggest you :

  • Share a story - read with your child or if more experienced readers want to read alone chat to them about what they have read - get them to tell you the story or fun facts
  • Get writing - this could be lists, letters, diary entries, creative stories - just keep practising the basics - capital letters, full stops, sentences that make sense and don't forget to practise handwriting and spelling.
  • Practise key number facts, times tables and maybe try a bit of problem solving
  • Develop a project - this can be about anything that interests your child, use online resources for research, include pictures, cartoons, craft work, thought bubbles - be as creative as you dare!


Each class page will have links to age related resources and a range of activities you could try at home.  We will include spelling and maths facts for you to use.  The Kids Zone of the website also has some fun ideas and activities.


On the Read all about it page staff will be uploading videos of them reading stories for you to share.


We recognise that giving children structure to their day and a sense of purpose supports their emotional health and well being as well as their wider education.  We hope you find the resources we have provided useful.

Short Wood Primary School - Aiming high, growing dreams. School is now closed - we will only be open for pupils of essential workers and vulnerable pupils. Please only bring your child to school if you have NO OTHER option for childcare provision, keep your children at home if possible as this is the best way to prevent the spread of the virus. Thank you.
