Dear Parents & Carers,
We will be using the school website to ensure that children are given the opportunity to continue learning remotely. We will be uploading learning resources to the school website intermittently, covering all aspects of the national curriculum.
There are a lot of websites with useful learning materials, however please monitor children whilst they are using the internet.
Please look below to see activities suitable for the whole school!
We would love to see your Home Learning so please feel free to email any pictures to your class teachers!

We know that many of our children have been having morning Collective Worships with their families, this is a lovely idea to keep children in the routine of what we do at school. If you would like to do this at home, you could look at our different school values and discuss them with your child, we also have our school prayer and school vision that the children are very proud of - these could be said daily and discussed. You could look at Bible stories, or stories with a moral theme, followed by a song and closing prayer - many children enjoy doing this at school!
The Southwark Diocese Board of Education are sharing Collective Worship resources, you may wish to look at these and discuss them with your children:

Language of the Month
Our language of the month is Yoruba!
Have a go at learning some Yoruba words and phrases on this useful website:
Home Learning project:
Yoruba is a West African language. In which countries do people speak Yoruba? Can you find out more about one of these countries and create a fact file? Can you create a Yoruba themed artwork?
If you bring your project with you when we return to school, they will be put up in the corridor on our language of the month board!

Chess club for everyone!
This could be a great time to learn chess or improve your chess skills.
Previously, our chess club has used chesskid.com and it's free registration. There are loads of videos, tutorials, puzzles and games to help your child play better chess. It's suitable for complete beginners as well.
Chess is a great way to develop logic and thinking skills. It's also great fun. Get playing!
Great for KS2. Some of our year 5 and 6 children have already used Scratch to create simple games and animations. It's completely free and there are plenty of tutorials to get you started. Coding (programming) is great fun and is a very useful skill. If children make some projects they are proud of it will make for a really impressive show and tell once we are back at school!
