Home learning whilst self isolating


Home learning while a child is self-isolating at home is extremely important to help keep routines established and to try and minimise disruption to your child’s education. This will also allow for them to have as seamless a transition back into school when they return. The sections below have a range of activities to do every day while self-isolating. In addition to completing the daily tasks, please choose 1 maths task, 1 English task and 1 task from the afternoon activities section to complete. It is really important that children stay active when self-isolating, so please also try to carry out one physical activity every day as well.

If you have any questions please contact our class email: class9@highfield-primary.trafford.sch.uk Thank you in advance for your help and support with this.

PSHE activities 

At Highfield we use SCARF for our PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) education. With SCARF, children learn vital life skills they need to help them be happy, healthy and safe.

The theme this half term is Keeping Myself Safe. 

We’re thinking the different ways we can keep ourselves healthy and safe, including staying safe online. We’ll be learning skills to help us look after our body. Older children will be learning about  assertiveness, recognising the influence of friends and also how to think critically about the decisions we make and managing risks safely.

Follow this link to find specially designed SCARF at home activities. These are similar to the ones your child's class are doing in school at this time.
