I understand that everyone’s situation and experience is different, and the most important thing is that you are staying safe and healthy. As well as the more formal learning tasks below, there are so many informal opportunities for learning to take place as well such as baking, art, building, gardening etc. (I know a lot of you have been doing activities such as these.)

Remember, only hand it in when you’ve finished everything (by Friday 8th May).

Easter holidays

Hi everyone,

Well done for your all hard work over the last few weeks. I’m so impressed with the way you have been getting on with activities and engaging with Google Classroom and it has been great to see the wonderful work you’ve produced.

Here are some activities and links for you to do over the Easter holiday. Please note – these are optional. There is no expectation that you complete home learning if you would prefer not to. However, we would like you to continue with your daily reading, which is very important. There is an exciting reading challenge on  Google Classroom.

This blog and the Google Classroom will not be updated over the holiday period (10th – 26th April). The Stream will be muted and you will not be able post comments there. You will still be able to access the Classwork section. If you have any urgent information, queries or safeguarding concerns, please could you email Mrs Evans on d.evans@stwilfridssheffield.co.uk.

Hi all,

Mr Brelsford has posted an Art activity on Google Classroom as well as some fitness challenges. It’s great to see some of you have already started your trees and quite a few of you have been doing the press ups and squat challenges – well done! Remember to post your pictures on Google Classroom so we can all see them.

 

Holy Week

Standard

Yesterday was Palm Sunday and marked the beginning of Holy Week.  With the reality of not being able to physically spend this time together as a parish and school community, we would like to still bring everyone together as best we can online.  We have a plan for every child who wishes to, to contribute to a liturgy by either pre-recording a reading, or making a picture.  We will then share this with the whole community on Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday.   If you would like your child to be a part of this, please let Mr Myers know on Google Classroom or via email and you will be given further instructions. Most children will be asked to create a picture to be used, this will be specified depending on the number of children who wish to be involved. 

Please note that the video or image that is submitted will be published online, including social media, as part of the Holy Week liturgy for St Wilfrid’s and St Thomas of Canterbury Schools.  By sharing any media, you are consenting for this to be used in this way.  

If you would like to take part, please email Mr Myers by Monday 14:00 so I can give further instructions.

 

I’ve also put a Holy Week presentation on Google Classroom which has some reflective activities to do throughout Holy Week,
