Save the Children Den Day:
As a school we are creating a Hope Garden of colourful stones. We are hoping that placing everyone’s stones together will be a visual reminder of how Little Bloxwich’s community is working together.
Can I ask that every child to decorate a large stone over the coming weeks, before school re opens?
We are asking for it in two ways:
1. To decorate it at home and drop it down to school on your daily walk (you will see where we are creating it – just by Mrs Taylors office).
2. To decorate them at home and bring it on our first day back at school.
Please decorate them in bright colours and not messages. If you can seal them to make them water tight please do so, this can be done by putting a layer of PVA glue over the stone or by spraying a specific lacquer.
Following the letter that went out to parents on Wednesday 18th March 2020 (but dated Thursday 19th March 2020) these are the addresses of the home learning websites that the children can log into whilst the school is closed due to the Coronavirus COVID-19
https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/ (username andpassword

In addition to these websites, White Rose Maths have released home learning maths lessons which are free and do not require usernames or password to access them. We strongly recommend the children using White Rose Maths to access maths activities because we follow the White Rose maths scheme in school.

During the coronavirus quarantine period in Spring/Summer 2020, I realised that lots of people were going to find themselves at home with their children for several weeks/months looking for things to do. So I decided to post some draw-along videos that parents could watch with their kids and, hopefurobbiddulph.com

We promised to update you when we had more information about the additional BBC Education content we are creating to support schools and parents over the coming months.
As you may have seen, we made an announcement this morning outlining our plans to ensure that every child in the UK has the opportunity to continue to follow the appropriate core parts of their nation’s school curriculum in these challenging times.
Our newly expanded education offer is called BBC Bitesize Daily and will see:
- Daily programmes to help guide parents and children through their learning day
- Famous faces Karim Zeroual, Oti Mabuse and Katie Thistleton lend their support alongside top quality teachers and organisations such as Royal Shakespeare Company, Premier League and Puffin Books.
- BBC Bitesize deliver daily online lessons for all age groups
- And content such as videos, quizzes, podcasts and articles to bring core subjects to life online at BBC Bitesize
Whether complementing what schools are providing remotely, or used as a standalone resource, our new content will launch on April 20th and will bring 14 weeks of educational programmes and lessons to every household in the country – whatever the age of the child.
Teachers will be the stars of this new content, as you are in the classroom every day, and always have been on BBC Bitesize. Teachers have helped design all lesson plans and will be at the core of every broadcast. We will share schedules with you ahead of time to help lesson planning and homework setting, and hope you’ll feel happy recommending us to parents to start the day the right way. We couldn’t do this without you.
BBC Bitesize Daily will deliver a tailored day of learning across BBC iPlayer, Red Button, BBC Bitesize website and app, BBC Four and BBC Sounds, with curriculum relevant offers across the UK. Together, this comprehensive package is aimed at minimising disruption to children’s education and providing rhythm and routine in these challenging times.
You can read the full press release here with more detail about all our new content.
And teachers, there is help at hand on the BBC Teach website too if you need some advice onhow to stay sane during a global pandemic.
