Top Tips for   Homeschooling from Clare Erasmus

1. Don’t try to replicate school.

2. There is learning to be found in the garden, kitchen, news and  documentaries.

3. Build relationships & play games together.

4. Be flexible.

5. Look after your wellbeing; take a siesta. 

For everyone

Whilst you still can, take advantage of getting outside and using an open space. Just a few minutes of fresh air and exercise each day can make a huge difference to your mental and physical health.

Though it is important to keep in touch with everyone, manage your screentime and try to avoid ‘fake news’ and rumour about the current situation.

Catch up on some reading instead.

Remember that phones can also be used for talking to people. Who would appreciate a call from you?
