We have researched the resources that you can use to support your child’s education at home during this unprecedented time.
On the following pages are the best available resources which are free, inspiring and easy to follow, so that you can make the most of learning at home.
We also hope that many of the materials can be followed by your children with minimal adult support so that you have plenty of tasks to fill what could otherwise be rather long days.
Our final aim is that we can celebrate what you are doing with your children, and maintain some elements of school life by still recognising children’s achievements by publishing the Timestables Rockstars and Numbots certificates, as well as sharing a new weekly Home Learning Certificate.
For an assembly idea, why not use this resource from the Diocese of Oxford.
We would like to remind you, and bring to your attention, that this Friday 22nd May at 10.30am there will be a special School Assembly delivered by the Bishop of Oxford.
This is for all schools served by the Diocese of Oxford, not just the Church Schools.
The Bishop of Oxford, reflecting on the powerful bible text of David and Goliath, will be considering some of the challenges that we all face during Lockdown, as well as considering some of the strategies that Christians have found helpful, over 1000s of years, for dealing with times of stress and difficulty.
The short Assembly will also include a time of stilling at the start, and a song which has been produced by a school worship band from Waddesdon School at the end. It also features some LEGO…
The Assembly will be sent as a Vimeo link on Thursday evening, but will also be live streamed on Facebook and Youtube (tagged with children’s content to ensure appropriate advertisements) and the links for these are below:
Go to facebook.com search box and then just click on the post which is called Diocesan School Assembly.
https://www.youtube.com/ then just type ‘The Diocese of Oxford’ into the search box, and the School Assembly should be easily found.
We hope that this will offer support to communities and individuals in stretching times, as well as giving support, comfort and strength for the way forward.
