Welcome

Hello and Welcome to The New Trinity Class Page,

In the section below you will find a number of ideas and activities that you can do with your child at home. You can combine the activities as you want, following your child interests, but we recommend sticking to a routine. Time to build in rewards or things that add incentive to completion should be done after each activity. Resources on this page will mirror work and themes being taught in school as we move forward.

The ideal structure of the day will be as follows: 

1) Set Morning ‘In tray’ tasks – colouring, fine motor skills activities eg threading, basic skills for literacy / numeracy activities

2) Attention Building / Bucket

3) Reading Book / Literacy / Numeracy

4) Break

5) Practical / Life Skills Activities

6) Lunch

7) Afternoon – creative activities eg Art / ICT

In Trinity, we find that it is better to complete the more formal learning tasks before lunchtime. Structure and knowing in advance what is happening during the course of the day are important.

The ideal duration for each activity is about 20 mins before a break / reward / distraction is needed. However, if your child is engaged and enjoying you could extend it as much as you want.

I will also be forwarding links, information and times for live and recorded sessions that can be accessed at home. However, please contact me or let me know when we chat about how we can support you in any way.
