Lockdown Learning

Dear Parents/Carers,
With all the concerns over the coronavirus outbreak and how this might impact schools and your child’s learning, we wanted to offer you some ideas to help you continue their education during school closure.  

We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy and so we have prepared perfectly matched content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support.

We also have our School Learning Zone with carefully selected resources mapped to different subjects across the National Curriculum.

As with any internet access adult supervision is necessary when using these resources.

Whilst every effort has been made evaluate these sites for content, St Thomas' Leesfield C of E Primary School is not responsible for the content of external Internet sites.

The Power of Kindness Calendar

As the UK faces a global coronavirus pandemic, things can feel a little uncertain and even overwhelming. But, during these difficult times, one thing is clear: small acts of kindness make a big difference.  The power of kindness calendar helps children and young people learn about and carry out kind acts.  This would be a lovely thing to do over the Easter break.

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

Youth Sport Trust

It is the mission of the School Games to provide ‘more young people with the opportunity to compete and achieve their Personal Best’. This includes competing against oneself and others to improve personal performances with a focus on the process rather than the outcome (on the learning and values development of the young person rather than just the result). For some inspiration, watch some personal challenges created by young people, have a go yourself, or create your own.

We have a range of activities for you to try, created in partnership with Complete PE, and you can download any of them from the list below. Find a daily activity by following us on Twitter @YouthSportTrust.
