We do not want you to worry unnecessarily about being able to teach subjects as they would be taught in your child’s setting. Take time to play and do activities that fit with your daily routines, and focus on your family time.
Try not to add additional stress to yourselves or your children by thinking that you must focus on the curriculum. When children return to school (whenever that may be), rest assured that all our early years settings, schools and colleges, once they are working with all of our children again, will take account of this enforced pause in education.
For now, it is important to remember that our collective priority is to stay safe, whilst making the time as enjoyable as we can.
