School closed on Friday 20th March due to the Covid 19 pandemic, but that should not mean that learning stops!
For as long as Whinstone remains closed we will provide your child with weekly learning packs directing them towards useful resources to consolidate their learning and we will email you with regular additional resources and ideas. Please encourage your child to do some learning activities every day when school is closed as this will put them in the strongest position when they eventually return to school.
We encourage you to provide some structure for your child as many of us thrive with a clear structure, but if your child is feeling uncertain or anxious then please give them your time to talk through their feelings. Children will not learn if they are feeling worried, so if they cannot complete their learning activities on a particular day or time than that is fine. The mental health and well-being of your child should remain paramount at this time.
