Welcome

Hello Tintagel Families

We hope you are well and having lots of fun experiences at home. You should find resources here on our class page linking to a book called "Peace at last."  Please have a go at some of the English, Maths, Science and Art activities and upload some photos of what you've been up to on Evidence for Learning. Our humanities theme for the half term is recycling and some of our other zoom sessions throughout the week, such as music and make and do will link to this topic too. We have a wide selection of Zoom activities each week to keep you entertained. You may have even found your own educational resources such as those provided on the BBC each morning on the BBC bitesize website. Some young people will want to do everything planned, whereas others will want to pick and choose those activities that fit in with their current routine.  Whatever you decide to do, it is all fine!

Please also find below, links to games and websites that we use in school. Some may require login detail which will be sent to you separately. 

We miss you all and look forward to when we can be back at school together.  Until then, we will see you on Zoom. Have fun and stay safe.

Rachel, Stef, Jacqui, Hannah and Anthony

Top Tips for Home Learning

Create a routine and a timetable for the day. This can be presented visually daily of weekly.

Make learning as fun as possible, with games and everyday play.

  • Build in:
    • Tasks around the home that will support your family routine and improve self-help, independence, and life skills. These can include successfully completing daily self-care routines e.g. brushing their teeth having a shower or bath, tidying their bedroom, helping to sort the washing, simple cooking and helping with shopping lists and putting it away, recycling
    • Opportunities for daily exercise
    • Opportunities to be creative in play and use board games  to help develop their maths thinking and understanding and social skills
    • Opportunities to read a range of materials, these can include books, magazines, instructions
    • Opportunities  to write for a purpose  e.g. shopping list , letter or postcards to friends and family

To support you and your child

-Recognise what your child does well and praise them.

-Be Consistent

-Breakdown instructions into small manageable tasks.

-Model by sitting together and each of you completing the task

-Provide visual and/or written prompts to support independent task completion

-Repeat tasks as often as they are needed – this helps to generalise skills , and move them from short to long term memory

BUT the most important thing is: Be kind to yourself and your child  – As much as you are trying to implement a schedule it does not need to be set in stone. If something does not go according to plan do not panic or worry about it. These are challenging times, and some days will not go as well as others. You are all wonderful parents/carers doing an amazing job!! If you need help or guidance please ask.
