PLAYING AT HOME

by Lucy Naylor

I am sure most parents would agree that play is vital for children's development. However, typically learning is seen as separate from play. The primary focus is on developing children's literacy and numeracy skills and knowledge building in science, the arts, technology etc. Learning within these areas is more formal (think: sitting down, writing, completing tasks, puzzles, problems, or activities set by the teacher). For many adults, this is what learning looks and sounds like.

What If Instead Of Behind, These Kids Are Ahead?

by Lucy Naylor

In our third week of Home Learning, our focus is on providing quality teaching and learning, a continuation of classwork and as much as possible, providing a semblance of routine and order. We are only too aware of the impact that lockdown may have on our children's progress and achievement, but research shows that we should remain optimistic.
