PHSE - Talking to Kids about the Coronavirus

The current coronavirus pandemic is causing anxiety and significant life changes throughout the world. Information about the virus can be confusing, overwhelming and scary. Talking about the virus, what’s being done to combat it and how all the changes around us are affecting our lives is crucial in helping kids to feel calm and empowered. Here are some tips:

  • Find out what your children already know.
  • Talk about your feelings as a family
  • Use developmentally appropriate, concrete language. For school aged children, consider saying something like:

“The coronavirus is a type of germ that is strong and making some people sick. It spreads from person to person when people sneeze or cough on or near each other.”

“It’s more serious for older people and people who have other health problems, but not as dangerous for kids like you.”

“Everyone is working together to stop the virus from spreading more. That is why (talk about things that may be cancelled or changed in their lives) is cancelled/postponed so that we can help protect everyone we love.”

“There are very smart scientists, doctors, nurses and politicians all around the world who are working very hard and fast to help do everything they can to keep people safe from the virus.”

  • Empower the whole family to feel in control (Circle of control activity may help)
  • Maintaining a routine
  • Keep things as fun as possible
  • Try to avoid watching the news 
  • Encourage older kids to minimize time on social media,

Further advice for parents discussing with children

Circle of control Activity

In the outer circle write down things out of control

For example: how long school closures will last, if people get sick.

Write things you can control in the middle

For example: how often I wash my hands, social distancing, having a positive attitude, trying my best, using kind words.

Encourage the children to let go/worry less about things they can’t control and focus on all the things they can control.

The Times Table and Division Challenge!

Spring-times-table-and-division-challenge.pptx

Please warm up your brains with hit-the-button Times Tables facts game before taking on the Times Table challenge. I set these challenges every half term. Children should be able to recall facts from the x2, x5, x10, x3, x4 and x8 by the end of Year 3. How many facts can your family members recall in half an hour?

Make sure you practise division facts with the hit the button game everyday next week before taking on the Division challenge.
