Useful Links and Documents to Prepare Children for Their Return To School After Home Learning

As we prepare to welcome all children back into school next week, it is natural that whilst some may feel excited and eager to return, others may be experiencing anxiety or have questions and concerns regarding their return to school.  It is really important that we all take the time to listen, talk and validate these feelings. Back in school, we will be completing lots of activities to support the children's emotional literacy , mental and physical wellbeing. In the meantime, there are some super web resources on this subject and we would like to signpost you to a few of these, should you feel that they would be beneficial to your family.

Home Activities: 

You may like to use these two activities by Partnership for Schools, as a focus for discussions about experiences during Lockdown and feelings about returning to school. Please do feel free to download and invite your children to bring into school if they would to share them with their teachers: Going back to school activity and Letting Go and Future plans activity

Websites & Resources:

Barnados have put together a return to school information hub at: https://www.barnardos.org.uk/support-hub/back-to-school
