Home Learning

Whilst the school is closed due to the Coronavirus we will be setting Home Learning on this page.

This is where we will set activities for you to complete at home, together with providing the necessary support and guidance you may require.

These activities are designed for two weeks of home learning.

Facebook

Website

“This is our information hub for children, young people, and families in Wales.

We will post answers to your questions, be honest when we don’t have the answers, post ideas, things to do while at home and things make you relax and laugh.

All children have the right to reliable information under the UNCRC.”

Wellbeing

Many young people and their families may be feeling anxious and worried during school closures. It can feel scary and isolating but you are not alone. Remember that it is as important to take care of your mental health as well as your physical health. The COVID-19 pandemic is a new and uncertain time for all of us and may affect our mental health in different ways. While most of the attention has understandably been on physical health, it is more important than ever that we make sure to look after our mental health and the mental health of our loved ones.  Below we have included some resources that hopefully will be helpful for those children still in schools, as well as to equip parents and carers with children at home.

Everybody Worries e-book.

Even the bravest of the brave and the coolest of the cool worry. Worrying is normal when so much has changed.

Inspired by conversations with his parent friends who weren’t sure how to explain what is happening right now to their small children, artist and writer Jon Burgerman decided to do something to help.
