The government has announced that from when the gates close on Friday 20th March, all schools, colleges, universities and childcare settings will be closed for most children until further notice. Below is a list of our local schools with links to their websites so that you can keep up with news directly from them. Most of these websites are (or will be soon) full of great ideas and practical home learning resources, as well as news updates specific to each school.
Treverbyn Academy – no current information
Roche Community Primary School – Roche have already put together a Home School Letter pdf for parents with a great list of educational activities and suggestions for practical home based learning, including a suggested daily schedule.
Luxulyan School – They have a good newsfeed on their homepage with information about how children of keyworkers will be looked after during the school closures. There is also a good list of links to educational apps and other digital resources under Home Learning.
Poltair – All COVID-19 information is accessed through their homepage, including login details for home learning. They also have a section on well-being resources with this great Coping Calendar. Other resources coming soon.
Home Education resources
Please bear in mind that even your local home ed groups will be feeling uncertain right now, not being able to access the different social groups and activities they are used to. With that in mind, there is a large and active home education community in UK who have compiled this excellent list of online resources to get you started if you are looking for educational activities.
We have also received this list of resources from Restormel Families team at Cornwall Council to help you.
In addition, there are various Facebook groups which have recently started, with free resources and online classes advertised regularly.
