The Science of Learning from Home

Professor Paul Howard-Jones of Channel 4’s The Secret Life of Four & Five Year Olds has teamed up with STEM Learning to share his knowhow on the science of how children learn. 

A new short video forms part of The Science of Learning from Home, a guide created to offer advice to parents and carers in supporting their children's learning from home during lockdown.

It covers topics including what goes on inside children’s brains, how children learn and how parents can help their children build knowledge and remember what they’ve learnt.

Coronavirus - A Book For Children!

An information book explaining about the coronavirus to children, illustrated by Gruffalo illustrator Axel Scheffler. 

Axel Scheffler has illustrated a digital book for primary school age children, free for anyone to read on screen or print out, about the coronavirus and the measures taken to control it. Published by Nosy Crow, and written by staff within the company, the book has had expert input: Professor Graham Medley of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine acted as a consultant, and the company also had advice from two head teachers and a child psychologist.

The book answers key questions in simple language appropriate for 5 to 9 year olds:

• What is the coronavirus?
• How do you catch the coronavirus?
• What happens if you catch the coronavirus?
• Why are people worried about catching the coronavirus?
• Is there a cure for the coronavirus?
• Why are some places we normally go to closed?
• What can I do to help?
• What’s going to happen next?

From Friday 20th March schools, childcare and other educational settings are closed for everyone except

  • children of critical workers
  • vulnerable children

For further information published by the Government for parents and carers please follow the link:

The message from Government is clear, if children can stay safely at home, they should to limit the chance of the virus spreading.

If parents / carers are key workers essential to the COVID-19 response and limited provision may be required for your child in school please contact school by emailing head@wsses.northants-ecl.gov.uk to make arrangements before bringing your child to school.

Please do not bring your child to school until you have received confirmation that limited care provision can be provided. Thank you.
