It was super to welcome back more pupils to Farway last week. The pupils and staff have adjusted to their new learning environment and new routines brilliantly - thank you for all your hard work with this. The school is now split into 2 bubbles - Dragonflies and Frogs!  Please enjoy having a look at photos from below!
Well done to you all,

Important Information Letters About the Phased Reopening of Schools
Thy Kingdom Come
 
Please have a look at the ideas below and in the separate resources so that we still engage with Thy Kingdom Come this year even if we can't do it together in school. Please send photos into the admin email address of any of the activities you do linked to this so that we can make a special book which I will share with The Diocese.
 
Thy Kingdom Come is a Christian prayer initiative that happens every year between Ascension and Pentecost. In this time Jesus’ followers had: encountered him as a resurrected person, witnessed him ascending into heaven, had hidden and prayed with him in the upper room, and then had a transformative supernatural with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost which is often called the birthday of the Church.

This year Thy Kingdom Come will run between 21-31st May 2020.

Please find attached some resources to help children learn about this important part of the Christian story and will encourage them to reflect on some big ideas.

Here is the web link for the resource

This is also a link  to the Thy Kingdom Come website that has some podcasts for families to listen and respond to together.

The Family Prayer Adventure podcasts are a fun and engaging way to help families pray together. There is one following each daily theme of Thy Kingdom Come, and they are about 10-12 minutes long. They feature a game, an interactive Bible story (written and performed by folks like Bob Hartman), a chance to pray and great music.

Prayer spaces in schools have also created some ideas for families to create Prayer Spaces at home. The ideas are really simple and I was thinking that we could invite families to send in photos of the prayer spaces that they have created.

Look at some of the work that the children who have been in school have been doing.
 
During the period of lockdown, the children have been encouraged to go on a virtual tour of world festivals. In the week of 5th May, this involved a ‘visit’ to Mexico for the Cinco de Mayo (Fifth of May) festival there. As part of the week’s work, the children investigated aspects of Mexican life and culture, including the work of artist Frida Kahlo. They tried some Mexican food and made colourful piñatas, using papier maché and crepe paper.

More ideas to support your Mental Health are included in this week's Mental Health Ideas' Sheet.

Look at some of the work the children have been doing who have attended Branscombe School during the closure.
Here are some more ideas to help you to look after your mental health during this unusual time. 
These ideas are based on the '10 a Day' which the children will be familiar with. Please don't feel you have to do them all but focus on the areas that your family are struggling with.

Please do the best you can with this. We don't necessarily expect you to do it all - but nor do we want you to run out of ideas for activities. Reading and practising number bonds and times tables are the most important things you can keep going with.

Time Capsule Activity
This is a lovely activity for children to create a Time Capsule of their memories from this strange period of their own history. Something they can keep and look back on in years to come.
Story Time with Mrs Snell
This letter requires parents of children with an EHCP or have social worker involvement, or if parents think they may be in key worker groups, to respond by March 20th at 12 noon to indicate need for school provision during the School Closure period.
