Again, some of you may prefer to use Oak National Academy: 

There is plenty of lessons to choose from, Maths, English and foundation subjects (PSHE, PE, Spanish and Science.) There is an online tutor who will deliver the session and then you can complete activities and a quiz during the lesson. A pen and paper is all they really need and if there is anything else required, it will tell you before the lesson.


Have a look and just complete the one you prefer. If you enjoy the revision style lessons stick with BBC Bitesize but if you prefer the tutor to talk you through the lesson then have a try at Oak National Academy.

Health and Well Being 

The next few weeks, a big topic will be Health and Wellbeing. With changes happening daily, we thought it would be nice for the children to try and open up and talk about Coronavirus with their family, thinking about their personal worries or concerns and writing them down so they are able to reflect back on these feelings in a few months time. Opening up is hard and being able to do this from an early age with really benefit the children. (and adults alike!) Have a try at the activities attached to help you.

The daily acts of kindness activity is ongoing and to show there is still some good in our world big or small gestures could change somebodies outlook for the better! How many can you say you do? Have a try over the next few weeks!

Transition is the start of a new school year and the day a child moves up to a new year group at school. ... Changing classes can be daunting for a child, so these transition activities can make them feel more at ease as they settle into a new class and a new year. Have a try at writing down any worries or fears and share them with an adult. Just like last week, it is good to share any worries and fears you may have especially those linked to moving upto Year 6! Alot of our worries can be solved quite easily - I PROMISE!!

The Positivity Jar activity is a an activity to change negetative ideas to positive thoughts. The jar can be filled with positive words, comments or affirmations. The purpose of the jar is to use it whenever you are feeling sad and need to remember all the positive things about yourself. Choose your own jar and decorate it yourself!

Remember, we all have bad days and this is a normal part of growing up its how we change our fate that makes us special!

Worry and anxiety is normal in all aspects of life, but particulary when things happen that change our everyday normality. Speaking out and sharing our concerns can really help. Attached is lot's of activities that can help us with this and even gives us ways to talk to people when we are faced with new challenges. Don't be afraid - just like in the video below some worries are not even our's to have! 

There is also, some nice Mindfulness activities, crosswords, colouring and even activities to remind yourselves how loved and special you all are to us.

RE Home Learning (Attached in the files)

*Note to parents:
This work comes from the Come and See Religious Education programme which is taught in all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Liverpool. They have given a general guide to the learning opportunities that your child may have come across in school and have only suggested and selected a small amount of the programme. The activities aim to keep Religious Education practical and fun. They are in Year groups however, there is no harm in completing other year group work as this will help your child to remember and strengthen their learning. Please only choose the activities you and your child wish to complete. There are lots of suggestions to help you choose.
The first part of learning is called – EXPLORE. This shares your child’s everyday experiences and helps them to see how the Catholic faith is lived in their everyday lives. The second part, called – REVEAL shares bible stories that links to their everyday life.
