There will be:
hints and tips activities to do books you can share
I hope you find them helpful, but please remember if you need help and advice or a listening ear there is always someone at school just give us a call.

Help with understanding Coronavirus
Click on the links below to see child friendly books and stories which explain the coronavirus and why we have to stay safe, keep social distance and follow the rules.
Please make sure you look at the books before you share them with your children to make sure you are happy with the messages in them.
These books should be shared with your child so that you can answer any questions they may have. After that they can look at them alone if they want to.
