What can I do with my child if their school is closed?

To keep your child busy and learning in the event  that  school closes, try to complete some of these activities. With a range of fun, engaging and challenging tasks, your children will practise fundamental skills and reinforce concepts that have already been taught to them during this year. This is the perfect way to help your child reinforce learning and enhance knowledge until they are able to return to school.

Why do schools decide when to close?

On rare occasions, schools will decide to close. This can be for a variety of reasons but they are usually to protect both students and staff.  Your child’s learning doesn’t stop just because they are not able to attend school and these activities will help them continue with their knowledge and understanding of the world.

Can someone with no teaching experience deliver this pack?

Any adult can support  their child without having any teaching expertise or subject knowledge. Many of the activities require no input at all from an adult – they simply cover content that your child will already have some understanding of from previous lessons at school.

 

Have a look below to find some fun activities to do together.

(New resources will be added to this page each Monday, they will be indicated by a * at the beginning)

Please check your Tapestry account for our regular challenges, which you can do at home.

Reading

As a school, we use the Bug Club scheme for our reading books. Every child should have access to BugClub as an online reading book service. On this website, teachers can allocate books which are at a similar level to individual children's phonic level and we can see when all books have been read to allocate more. You are able to continue as before to access this site from home, see 'Bug Club Information' document if you are unsure. Below, you will also find a selection of websites offering free e-books for home use to support our effort with keeping Cherry Tree Hill reading!

With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it's more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive. Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic. Starting Monday 23rd March, Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) is going to be hosting a free PE lesson/ workout aimed at kids every day, LIVE on his YouTube channel.


The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even adults can get involved. You don't need any equipment. Follow this link:
