I am well aware that some of you may be struggling in these unprecedented times, that some of your children may be struggling with a lack of familiar routine and seeing familiar faces. Please don’t beat yourselves up if you are finding it difficult to keep up with the work that your child’s teacher is setting, just do your best. It is more important that you and your child are safe and happy at the moment. However you may find it helpful to try and establish some sort of routine. Hopefully some of the resources and websites I've highlighted here may be of use.
