Resources and Activities

May 6, 2020

Please check out our new section on our website which contains lots of online resources and activities that we hope will help families during this difficult time.

You will find this page by going to the “Parents in SEB” section and then the “School Closure and Covid-19” section. 

Not only have we included resources to help pupils continue their learning, we have also included resources to perhaps help answer any questions your child might have about the coronavirus, to help anyone who might be feeling worried or scared at this time and to hopefully keep us all feeling positive!

This area will be updated regularly with more and more resources as we receive them, we hope they are of help to our pupils and their families.

Tips & Tricks for Home Learning

“Every day is a school day”

When we think about learning, we often think about our school books and writing in our copies.

But we now have the chance to get back to basics and there are endless opportunities for learning in the home, for example,

  • reading/storytelling
  • writing letters, lists and notes
  • cooking
  • setting the table for dinner
  • gardening

Here is a link to lots and lots of different ideas for learning at home – Never underestimate the life skills children can learn from you!
