We would love to hear from families who are still at home, to know how you are doing. Please do continue to get in touch with teachers via the class email addresses or via office@chewmagnaschool.org.uk.

 

 

 

 

 

Our daily emails sent out to families outline suggested learning activities linked to the curriculum, but we also want to support the wellbeing of the whole family. We are keen to emphasise that our main wish during this time is for you and your children and families to be safe and well. 

 

We realise that there is an abundance of advice on social media and the internet, but we have drawn together some of the things that we feel are useful.

 

SCARF provide our school learning scheme for PSHE; there are some great resources to support home learning. The resources for the learning packs can be accessed below:

SCARF Learning Pack 1

SCARF Learning Pack 2

SCARF Learning Pack 3

 

Public Health England and Ed Start have provided suggestions which we have amalgamated into a document for you. Please click here to view them together with some ideas and added links which we feel are appropriate for both adults and children in the Chew Magna Primary School community.

 

You may find this document entitled Social Contact useful for explaining to children about social distancing. 


Thrive activities 1, 2 & 3 - provide some ideas to do at home with children to support social and emotional connection. These are released each week and if you would like more, please contact Jeanette Simson on jeanette.simson@chewmagnaschool.org.uk

Please let us know if you need any support during this time. If we can't answer your question, we will be able to signpost you to someone who can help.

 

 

 

Mon 6.4.20 - Fri 16.4.20

As it is the ‘Easter Holidays’, teachers are not sending daily emails with activities to support children’s home learning.

 

We have put together a Reading Challenge pack for children and families to dip into if they would like. Traditionally at Chew Magna Primary School, children and families have been encouraged to take part in the Reading Challenge – but as Libraries and bookshops are closed, we have put together our own Easter Reading Challenge. If you would like some ideas for books try https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/ - and The Oxford Reading Owls website have a collection of free e-books for you to access. 

 

We hope you and your family are enjoying the lovely weather in your gardens or as part of your daily exercise.

Teachers will be back in touch with each family for activities for the following day on Sunday 19th April.

 

 

Mon 20.4.20

As Term Five begins, teachers will now resume sending their daily emails to families to support home learning. There will be a Maths activity, Literacy activity and one relating to the wider curriculum.

 

We would love to hear from families to know how you are doing. Please get in touch with teachers via the class email addresses or via office@chewmagnaschool.org.uk.
