Nationwide restrictions due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) have seen schools close to a majority of students; however teachers, parents and children have still been as busy as ever.

It feels like a different world, not just a few weeks, since our last School Report when we were receiving photos of children in classrooms; however parents and children have been adapting very well to home schooling.

Teachers across Norfolk have pulled together resources and worksheets to support parents with home learning. Schools around Norfolk have been sharing on social media what their pupils have been up to at home. They have also been sharing photographs of activities that the children of key workers have been doing in school too.

Baking, painting, building towers and science experiments are among the fun tasks that children have been enjoying at home whilst also learning.

Colourful signs of well wishes and thanks to key workers have been created by children, hung up in windows and on school gates as a way to brighten people’s day as they go out for their daily exercise.

To be included in our School Report pages, please send your photos to schoolphotos@archant.co.uk
