Learning at home
Supporting learning at home
Below you will find links to access some learning opportunities that will support you and your child if they are learning from home for the remainder of Term 1.
To support learning at home, you are not required to be an expert or trained educator and here are some key points that will assist you.
Develop a routine
Children and young people are used to the routine and structure of school. To support their ongoing learning, it is important they have as much routine and certainty as possible in their day. You can support your child or young person’s learning by:
- Involving your child in establishing a simple, consistent, and responsive daily routine
- Including times for eating, reading, talking, writing, playing and exercise
- Displaying your daily routine so everyone in the family can see it
- Creating a balance between more formal learning with time for reading books, exploring the outdoors and child initiated learning opportunities
- Being prepared for things not going to plan and being flexible.
Creating a supportive learning space
It is a good idea to set up an ‘at home’ learning space where children have access to the things they need. A dedicated learning space separates work and play which supports children’s focus and concentration. This will allow you to organise and manage learning materials and assist where necessary.
- Involve your child in creating their learning space
- Consider the age and independence of your child when deciding on the location of the learning space
- Remember to use safe outdoor spaces for learning throughout the day.
