Learning for Life Home Learning

23rd March 2020

Dear Parents and Carers

I would like to thank you for the many messages of support that we have received at this time and to assure you that staff are working incredibly hard to ensure that your child continues to receive resources to support their home learning.
 

Home Learning Model Timetable

Please find attached a home learning timetable that we have developed in consultation with our Educational Psychologist Emma Gore-Langton and Speech and Language therapist Maddy White. Maddy has also devised the attached visual timetable which you may wish to use.

We understand that many of our students thrive on routine and we have produced this timetable to support parents who may wish to introduce some structure to the week days while schools are closed.

The activities suggested are just ideas that parents may wish to use at home with their child and are not expectations from school or intended to add any additional pressure to parents; you should do whatever will work best for you and your family.

Zones of Regulation

Attached is some guidance for parents on using the Zones of Regulation system which is a very user-friendly system we use in schools to help students manage their emotions. Many of our students who are visual learners find this can really help support them to understand and identify with their emotions, especially now when emotions are heightened and many children are feeling anxious.

Support for Parents

You may also find the following links helpful which our Educational Psychologist has provided:

Maddy White our Speech and Language therapist is happy to offer advice around communicating with children who are not coping very well with the current situation and can be contacted onmadeline.white4@nhs.net .

 Home Learning Resources

Attached is a list of specific websites for students at the Learning for Life Campus and some guidance on home learning.

Work packs for Key Stage 4 students have gone home for those that were in school on Friday. Others will be posted or delivered asap.

A Learning for Life Campus Home Learning area will go up over the next week on our website with class folders, where work will be uploaded by class teachers.

 Please do let us know if there are specific resources or advice which you require and we will do our very best to find solutions to these requests.
