  • Mental Health and Well-being.   

It has been a long time since lock-down began and school closed.  Many of you have not been into school, seen friends or family as much as you would like to.  Some of you may have suffered  from worry, anxiety, financial strain and even bereavement due to covid-19 and you have our love and thoughts.  At St Luke's, we are conscious that this can put a strain on our mental health and we want you all to know that we are here for you.  Please email the teachers or phone school if there is any way in which we can help.  

Here are some suggestions for how parents can support their children if they are feeling anxious or worried during this challenging period:   https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6ksy9q

 

  •  Summer activities   

The British Red Cross has a wonderful summer challenge called the 'Summer of Kindness', which you can sign up to.  The activities will encourage simple acts of kindness, build resilience and include topics like mental well- being, loneliness and helping children and young people prepare for the return to school.

Homework:

Homework will be handed out every Friday to be completed and returned on Mondays.  Usually, the children will receive Maths and English homework as well as reading and spellings.  However, they are also expected to practise their times tables daily. Please support and encourage your children in their out-of-school learning.

 Home-school projects are also regularly set in order for pupils to give pupils the opportunity to transfer their skills, express their creativity and share their learning at home.

Reading

Children have their own reading books which should be brought into school every day and they are expected to read every night for 10-20 minutes.  This will help them to develop their fluency, expression, accuracy and comprehension skills. Parents are kindly asked to write a comment in their child's reading record after listening to them read. Your child will receive a new reading book by the end of each week if they have shown that they have read and understood it.
