We know from last year’s lockdown that home learning can bring a lot of challenges for children, young people, parents/ carers and teachers. So how can you help make home learning a more positive experience for you and your child?
First just remember everyone is doing their best in these challenging circumstances. No-one expects you to create a whole school experience in your living room or follow a strict timetable down to the last second. Learning at home can be much more effective when there is a balance between school learning, play and leisure activities.
Fife Council and Fife Health and Social Care Partnership therapy services (occupational therapy, speech & language therapy and physiotherapy) have worked collaboratively to produce the ‘Learning at home resource’ keeping your child happy and healthy while learning at home.' The resource supports readiness for remote learning, aiming to maximise learning potential, increase fun and reduce the stress of learning at home.
