Our children not only can hear everything that is going on around them, but they may feel the tension and anxiety present in society. They have never experienced anything like this before. Although the idea of being off school for an extended period may sound great to some children, they are probably imagining a fun time like summer break, not the reality of being at home and not seeing their friends.
Over the coming weeks, you may see an increase in some issues with your children such as anxiety, anger, or frustration that they can’t do things normally. This is normal and expected under these circumstances.
What all children need right now is to feel comforted, loved and reassured. They need to play outside and go on walks, bake cakes and paint pictures, play board games and do a science experiment together. Here are just a few ideas.

Please read information from the school nurse advising what to do if your child becomes unwell.
We are providing resources to support learning at home. Each child was issued with two workbooks (maths and English). Staff are also updating Seesaw and Tapestry each week. Please ensure your child maintains regular, daily reading.
