HOME LEARNING PAGE 

On this new home learning page, you will find a comprehensive set of resources for each year group, so that your child can access learning from home during the school closure.  Activities cover the subject areas of Reading, Writing and Mathematics, along with specific projects.  There are five activities per subject per week, and there are enough resources to take you through a seven week period.
 
You will also find a list of spellings for your child's year group.  Aim to work through these a few at a time, ideally on a daily basis.  
Alongside these online resources, your child will bring home a paper booklet with a variety of curriculum-focused independent learning activities, along with some additional Mathematical resources to support further learning. These can be used as additional resources to the daily Reading, Spelling, Writing, Mathematics and Project Work. 
 

Free 'Leader in Me' Content 

 

 

As a part of their ongoing COVID-19 support efforts, Franklin Covey have compiled a new Teacher and Families Resources page using their award-winning library of educational and 7 Habits content. 


 

There are some amazing educational cartoons for children and some help for parents too.

We hope this will help families with home schooling ideas and provide interesting and engaging bite-sized learning for all.

 

We hope it will help keep spirits up and everyone's mental well-being strong.

Wishing you, your teams and staff, pupils and families all the best.

A message from Joe Wicks: The Body Coach

Starting Monday 23rd March I'm going to be hosting a free workout aimed at kids LIVE on my YouTube channel.

With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it's more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive.

Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic.

The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even the adults can get involved.

You don't need any equipment, so just tune in to my YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout.

One more thing! I really need your help to spread this message. So please please share this with everyone that might like to get involved, and together we can help keep the nation moving

Below is a lovely verse of hope each school in the Trust

has been sent via the Garforth Peace Flame group.

 

Lockdown

Yes there is fear.

Yes there is isolation.

Yes there is panic buying.

Yes there is sickness.

Yes there is even death.

 

But, they say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise

You can hear the birds again.

 

They say that after just a few weeks of quiet

The sky is no longer thick with fumes

But blue and grey and clear.

 

They say that in the streets of Assisi

People are singing to each other

across the empty squares,

keeping their windows open

so that those who are alone

may hear the sounds of family around them.

 

They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland

Is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound.

 

Today a young woman I know

is busy spreading fliers with her number

through the neighbourhood

So that the elders may have someone to call on.

 

Today Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples

are preparing to welcome

and shelter the homeless, the sick, the weary.

 

All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting

All over the world people are looking at their neighbours in a new way

All over the world people are waking up to a new reality

To how big we really are.

To how little control we really have.

To what really matters.

To Love.

So we pray and we remember that

Yes there is fear.

But there does not have to be hate.

Yes there is isolation.

But there does not have to be loneliness.

Yes there is panic buying.

But there does not have to be meanness.

Yes there is sickness.

But there does not have to be disease of the soul

Yes there is even death.

But there can always be a rebirth of love.

Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.

 

Today, breathe.

Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic

The birds are singing again

The sky is clearing,

Spring is coming,

And we are always encompassed by Love.

Open the windows of your soul

And though you may not be able

to touch across the empty square,

Sing.

 

Fr. Richard Hendrick, OFM
