The learning plan will provide an outline for your child's learning. This will include regular breaks for activity, eating and drinking. In the activity breaks, it is important that students get up and move around.
From the first day you will need to establish routines and expectations. You should use the timetable or schedule provided by your school to set regular hours for school work.
Keep normal bedtime routines for younger children and expect the same from your older primary and high school-aged children too.
It is important that you set these expectations as soon as distance learning is implemented, not several days later after it becomes apparent a child is struggling with the absence of routine.
