Poems by Lizzie and Ben Holbourn:

 

 

If April is poetry month , some things to keep you going.

We can all be a bard

It really isn't hard !!!

Poetry Month

Mrs Wood

 

 

 

 

White rabbits!

White rabbits!

 

I hope no one has managed to play a trick on you yet today...

 

I'm sending you some poetry - there are enough poems for everyday of the month (with 3 left over!) - so let's make April our month of poetry...

 

I hope you'll be inspired to compose or perform some poems - you could record them, just like the poets on the clips to share with your teacher and family.

 

Have a lovely time

Enjoying all the  rhyme...

(I'm a poet and I don't know it!)

Mrs Wood

 


 

Some great responses to the Magritte challenge…

Well done! Look out there’s another one coming  soon.

Mrs W.

 

 

The False Mirror

 

Well done to Billy & Matilda!

Your work inspired by Magritte’s ‘The False Mirror'.

Look at the slideshow on the website about Magritte and then ‘have a go’ yourself.

Would love to see your pictures…

Some thoughts on how to support home learning

We’re into day 3 of this new reality and I wanted to share some thoughts…

 

Be realistic about what you can do 

1.      You're not expected to become teachers and your children aren't expected to learn as they do in school. Simply providing your children with some structure at home will help them to adapt. Use the tips below to help you make this work for your household

2.      Experiment in the first week, then take stock. What's working and what isn't? Ask your children, involve them too – we will be doing just that – so tell them to expect a phone call from their teacher!

3.      Share the load if there are 2 parents at home. Split the day into 2-3 hour slots and take turns so you can do your own work

4.      Take care of your own health and wellbeing. This will be new for your entire household, so give it time to settle. Mind.org and The Anna Freud Centre websites have some good advice on mental health and wellbeing during this unprecedented time.

 

Keep to a timetable wherever possible

1.      Create and stick to a routine if you can. This is what children are used to. For example, eat breakfast at the same time and make sure they're dressed before starting the ‘school’ day – avoid staying in pyjamas!

2.      Involve your children in setting the timetable where possible. It’s a great opportunity for them to manage their own time better and it’ll give them ownership

3.      Check in with your children and try to keep to the timetable, but be flexible. If a task/activity is going well or they want more time, let it extend where possible

4.      If you have more than 1 child at home, consider combining their timetables. For example, they might exercise and do maths together – see what works for your household

5.      If you have younger children who will also want to get ‘involved’ , you could try www.fiveminutemum.com  - ‘Five minute fun activities for busy people to do with little kids.’

6.      Designate a working space if possible, and at the end of the day have a clear cut-off to signal school time is over

7.      Stick the timetable up on the wall so everyone knows what they should be doing when, and tick activities off throughout the day

8.      Distinguish between weekdays and weekends, to separate school life and home life – which I appreciate is difficult during this period of lockdown.

 

Make time for exercise and breaks throughout the day

1.      Start each morning with some physical activity - at 9am with Joe Wicks? Other routines are available – perhaps you prefer to dance – then try GoNoodle – it’s great!

2.       If you have a garden, use it regularly. If you don’t, try to get out once a day as permitted by the government (households can be together outdoors but 2 metres apart from others)

3.       Get your children to write in a diary what they did each day – this can be a clear sign that the ‘school’ day has ended.And when things return to a different normality these could make interesting ‘archives’ to share…

 

Other activities to keep children engaged throughout the day

1.      Where you have more freedom in the timetable, make time for other activities. Add some creative time Music/Art or try some Cosmic Yoga – my personal favourite(!) To refocus…

2.      Ask grandparents to listen to your children read on FaceTime (or ask grandparents to read to younger children). My favourite online story at the moment is Gregory Porter’s Moon River as part of CBeeBie’s bedtime stories – try it tonight – Lovely!

3.      Give them chores to do so they feel more responsible about the daily routine at home

4.      Ask them to help you cook and bake 

5.      Accept that they'll probably watch more TV/spend time on their phone – that's ok but you might want to set/agree some screen time limits – staff are sending out safety reminders this week – please take some time to reflect on these with the children.

If you need to contact the school

yarm@yarmprimary.org.uk

or 01642782731 – the phone will be ‘manned’ at some times throughout the day, reflecting staff capacity. We will respond to any ansafone messages when we can – these will be accessed daily.

Keep safe.

We are thinking about you and miss you all.

Mrs Wood
