Work Out a Schedule
Most teachers and experts agree that a schedule is essential. Each morning, write down what needs to be done that day – whether it's your child’s school work, your own deadline or errands. Check what your child’s teacher has set that day and also work in some physical exercise, outdoor time, as well as much-needed down time: whatever form that may take. How much a child can achieve in one go depends on their age: smaller chunks of work for younger children but even older children need to take a break, get up, take a walk or get a drink.
Use your child’s regular schedule as a starting point. Wake-up time shouldn’t be much later than usual, despite what they might prefer. Make sure they are up, dressed and ready by the time that school normally begins.
Try to find different quiet places to work throughout the day; morning work could be at the kitchen table, reading could be in the living room and afternoon study could be in your child’s room.
Serve lunch around the same time as school and this can also be a good time for your child to take a break to catch up with a classmate or friend using FaceTime or the Microsoft Teams App. This provides social engagement with peers and create a sense of normality.
