If you’re finding it hard to learn at home during coronavirus, don’t worry – just do what you can.
It’s OK if you can’t do all the work you’d normally do in class or if you can’t finish everything your teachers send you.
Your school will understand that it can be difficult working at home for all sorts of reasons, like:
- finding it hard to learn without your teacher to help you;
- not having the right info or equipment at home;
- not having a quiet space at home to work;
- distractions like noisy siblings or people messaging you;
- having a support need that makes it hard to concentrate like dyslexia, ADHD or autism;
- having caring responsibilities at home that take up a lot of your time.
If you’re struggling to do the home learning set by teachers, it’s important to find a way to tell them. They will understand it can be difficult and they may be able to make suggestions that will help. If you don’t want to tell them, ask an adult you trust to get in touch with the school.
Also, remember that the adults who help care for you can get advice about extra support for learning from Enquire – our helpline for parents, carers and professionals.
