Integra Schools and South Gloucestershire Council are pleased to launch a new online resource to support parents, carers and teachers. This resource brings together a range of free and easy to access online activities and learning for children of all ages, and is clearly grouped into subjects and topics, such as English and Maths. We hope to develop this resource over time, creating a valuable tool for parents, as well as teachers to use when normal school attendance is disrupted.
It is important for your children to experience a range of different activities during the day to support different aspects of their learning and development. We suggest choosing activities from each of the different areas below. This will help to keep them interested. Try to develop a routine for learning with your child. You might start the day with choosing activities together and then complete a timetable to help to structure the day or week.
Online training/support now available to book
In response to requests, we have a range of online training/support for the summer term available to book now. Delivered by our experienced team of advisers and with most sessions priced at a very affordable £20, this is a great opportunity to continue to engage in high-quality training during this challenging time. With courses for everyone from Newly Qualified Teachers to subject and inclusion leaders, as well as interested parents, these sessions can be used to re-visit learning people may have missed or focus on something new.
