Some top tips for making learning at home successful:
~ Make a space for learning where the child can concentrate
~ Set aside some regular time for learning each day
~ Some children may find it helpful to have a 'timetable' - see link below for ideas
~ Ensure there are sufficient breaks and that learning is done in short, manageable chunks
~ Don't worry if your child is not able to complete a task
~ Try not to feel overwhelmed by the prospect of educating your child at home - we are here to support you and remember that every family in the country is in the same situation
~ Tackle this challenge together as a family - make it shared learning where possible
~ Be kind to each other and have some fun!
