I wonder how you and your children have dealt with the new timetable of learning from home? I am sure that some families will have thrived on the challenge of creating a detailed programme for each day, packed full of a mixture of physical exercise and mental gymnastics, times of peace and times of high activity, times of wonderful creativity and times of quiet reflection. Hopefully your child has not exhausted their Home Learning Pack and, where they have, hopefully they are now enjoying some of the ‘DeanClose@home’ activities. We are all learning during this time and I am convinced that, amongst the mayhem, a great many valuable lessons are being learnt; not

least to be able to adjust to a new routine and to
be more aware of

the needs of others around us.
