Year 6 School Closure
Here is a link to a page on Liverpool City Council’s website about the new childcare hubs which are opening on Monday:
Covid 19 parenting Blog – This blog is written by LCC, the Early Help Team and has contributions from citywide partner organisations. This has some great tips and tricks on support available to you, home learning ideas, playing together, and most importantly managing your own and your childrens well being through a difficult and uncertaintime such as this.
Here is a timetable that we have found that you could use to help your children stick to some routine. There are some ideas of activities that you can do for each slot and having this should allow you some space to work yourself also.
To help your child continue with their learning as best as possible during this time, below are suggested activities for them to complete.
Maths CGP SATS Question Book– Work through the pages that we have not yet completed in class. We would suggest 2 pages per day.
Times Table Rockstars/ Numbots– Log on at https://ttrockstars.com/ or https://play.numbots.com/ and use the TTRS log-in details for both. Numbots will start off with basic numbers then become more challenging as they demonstrate their ability.
Spelling Book– We would suggest 2 pages per day.
English SATS Question Book – Work through at their own pace.
Home reader- continue to read regularly at home (this could be their school reading book or any book of their choice).
Research the 90’s – Entertainment, music, fashion, sporting events and major events.
Write or type up findings. This will help us to write a chronological report when we return to school.

Mental health and Well being
Here is a resource that you can use with your children to start conversations about how they are feeling and how to manage those feelings.
Palm Sunday marks the start of Holy Week, which is the most important time of year for Christians. The week is marked by key moments in the dramatic last few days of Jesus’ life on Earth, before his death and resurrection on Easter Sunday. Maundy Thursday commemorates the washing of the feet and the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles. This is followed by Good Friday when Jesus is crucified and dies on the cross. However, it is not his death that Christians celebrate, it is his triumph over death and his promise of new life, which is a cause for celebration. It is for this reason that eggs, bunny rabbits and daffodils are shared at this time of year, as they all symbolise new life. Please take a look at the age-appropriate video clips below for you children:
