Important Information Letters About the Phased Reopening of Schools
Thy Kingdom Come
 
Please have a look at the ideas below and in the separate resources so that we still engage with Thy Kingdom Come this year even if we can't do it together in school. Please send photos into the admin email address of any of the activities you do linked to this so that we can make a special book which I will share with The Diocese.
 
Thy Kingdom Come is a Christian prayer initiative that happens every year between Ascension and Pentecost. In this time Jesus’ followers had: encountered him as a resurrected person, witnessed him ascending into heaven, had hidden and prayed with him in the upper room, and then had a transformative supernatural with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost which is often called the birthday of the Church.

This year Thy Kingdom Come will run between 21-31st May 2020.

Please find attached some resources to help children learn about this important part of the Christian story and will encourage them to reflect on some big ideas.

Here is the web link for the resource

This is also a link  to the Thy Kingdom Come website that has some podcasts for families to listen and respond to together.

The Family Prayer Adventure podcasts are a fun and engaging way to help families pray together. There is one following each daily theme of Thy Kingdom Come, and they are about 10-12 minutes long. They feature a game, an interactive Bible story (written and performed by folks like Bob Hartman), a chance to pray and great music.

Prayer spaces in schools have also created some ideas for families to create Prayer Spaces at home. The ideas are really simple and I was thinking that we could invite families to send in photos of the prayer spaces that they have created.

A special message from Staff!
Here are some more ideas to help you to look after your mental health during this unusual time.

MATHS LESSON SUPPORT
 
These links will provide introduction/lessons for the children before completing the practice book pages, as I know they can be tricky just going straight in without any teaching!
 
YEAR 4
 
The first video they will need for Friday 17th's maths lesson is Week 2 Lesson 5 'Dividing by 100' (they can use this one for Monday 20th too). The lessons will then go on to match the power maths pages I have asked you to do already!
I hope they help!
 
YEAR 5
 
 
The first video they will need for Friday 17th's maths lesson is Week 2 Lesson 1 'Rounding Decimals'. The lessons will then go on to match the power maths pages I have asked you to do already!

 
YEAR 6
 
At the bottom of the page from the link above you will see a link to an online version of your 6B POWER MATHS TEXTBOOK. The corresponding textbook page to practice book page should help you if you get stuck on what to do.
 
YEAR 3
From the Monday 11th May you will start money in maths in your 3B practice book and you will be able to access your 3B POWER MATHS TEXTBOOK online to help you. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/
 
For the moment, during maths and capacity learning, carry on doing your best in your practice books.
 
Well done and keep going!

Time Capsule Activity
This is a lovely activity for children to create a Time Capsule of their memories from this strange period of their own history. Something they can keep and look back on in years to come.
Story time with Mrs Snell
Mrs Snell from Farway has recorded a story for children to enjoy.
This letter requires parents of children with an EHCP or have social worker involvement, or if parents think they may be in key worker groups, to respond by March 20th at 12 noon to indicate need for school provision during the School Closure period.
