If you have an old laptop that is struggling to cope with the demands of home learning, you could consider converting it to a Google Chromebook for free. This will wipe everything you currently have on the laptop but it could solve your problem. School has used the Neverware software to convert our old laptops and some pupils are currently using them at home. This is the link: https://www.neverware.com/freedownload#intro-text
When at home, it is incredibly important that a routine is established and maintained throughout the period of absence.
Try to stick to school timings as much as possible. It is going to be difficult, especially if you are trying to work from home at the same time. If you do have Internet access, and your children can access Google Classroom, then their class teacher will be on-line to help them with tasks.
8:00 Breakfast and fun activities
9:00 Time to work: maths, writing, reading, science, spelling, history,
10:30 Time to work: as above
12: 00 Lunch time
1:00 Physical exercise (outdoor if possible)
2:00 Time to work: Art, cooking, designing or any of the above
3:30 More exercise….
Screen time where pupils are playing on computer games should be limited and boundaries put in place from the very start. Keeping them safe on line is very important and there is more advice about this below.
