Easter Activities

If you are looking for inspiration over the next two weeks, we have compiled below a range of projects / fun activities you could engage in this Easter. We will add ideas throughout the Easter Holidays! Remember, please do keep sending in anything you get up to: admin@ruyton.shropshire.sch.uk (photos work best). Happy Easter.

Happy Easter!

From all your Ruyton teachers 🙂

Dragonfly Class – last day of term 🐣

We made it! Well done and thank you to each and every one of you have logged in to the school website to complete home learning activities over the past two weeks. We will have a little ‘break’ from our daily learning for Easter holidays, as we always do, and get back to lots more in a fortnight.

I’ve been sent some brilliant emails about what you’ve been up to – thank you for making this effort and keeping me entertained!

Here are your suggested activities for the day (based on our normal Friday timetable):

  1. Maths: Log into My Maths and complete today’s set activity (remember to aim for 100% by practising tasks if needed.
  2. English: Log into Reading Eggs and continue reading the set book.
  3. History: Time Capsule! We are currently living in a very strange time but one that will be remembered in history! You could begin to make a ‘time capsule’ – find an object that you could fill with things but made of a material that will last. What will you put in it? How will you remember these first weeks? What’s important to you? You could add to your time capsule as the weeks go on.

Other ideas for Friday:

  • PE: Make extra-special use of your exercise time to learn a new skill or spend extra energy! It’s brilliant for your mental health.
  • TT Rockstars:  The Inter House Tournament continues! Play ‘Battle’ to earn your team points.

Over Easter, TT Rockstars, Number Gym and all the programmes we use will still be available for you to use. But of course, there’s lots of other things to ‘learn’ – I’ve heard about children learning to make beds properly, doing the washing and even mastering their own ‘family meal’. Sounds like an eggstremely good thing to do, eggstraordinary use of your holidays!

Have a great fortnight – stay safe, be kind and share your smiles. I’m missing you very much – last day of Spring term is one of my favourites in school.

Enjoy 🐣

Support For Families during the closures

Please see the e-mail from Telford and Wrekin Council offering support for people in need.

Shropshire Telford & Wrekin Beam – Phone-based support

Over the last 2 weeks we have been working on how we can continue to provide support for the young people who access our drop-in services.

From 2nd April 2020, Shropshire Telford & Wrekin Beam will be offering a call-back telephone service.

Please note that we are not offering a crisis or instant response service.

The support being offered is purely phone-based.  We cannot provide support via email, text/messaging apps or on video calling platforms.

Accessing call-back support:

Young people can email us at AskBeam@childrenssociety.org.uk asking for support.  Once they have emailed, an automatic response will ask for some more information.  When this has been completed, a team member will contact them to discuss what help they need, and when the best time would be for a practitioner to call them.

Calls will be booked in with our practitioners within our usual drop-in times.

Accessing support without a call back:

Where a young person does not want to talk but still needs some support, they can still contact us via AskBeam@childrenssociety.org.uk.  We can send details of online resources, information and apps which can offer support.

Information for Professionals:

You can signpost any young people who you feel would benefit from knowing more about this offer to our website https://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/beam/coronavirus.

You can also pass on the details as to how they get in touch with us.  Please ask the young person to contact us via AskBeam@childrenssociety.org.uk.

We won’t be able to contact young people unless the request for contact from our service has come from the young person or their parent/carer.

For all young people who are aged 13 and under, their parent/carer will need to make a request on the young person’s behalf.

As with our face to face drop-ins, the young person should want to engage with us, and be able to do so over the phone.

Information for Parents/carers:

If you feel your child(ren)/young person would benefit from our support, please take a look at our website https://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/beam/coronavirus.

For young people aged 13+ please ask them to contact us via AskBeam@childrenssociety.org.uk.

For young people who are aged 13 and under, you will need to contact us on their behalf via AskBeam@childrenssociety.org.uk.

As with our face to face drop-ins, the young person should want to engage with us, and be able to do so over the phone.

We will continue to innovate and adapt as we need to. This is an enormous effort from every corner of The Children’s Society to ensure we can continue to offer support to the children and young people we work with.  For more information about how our charity is working at the moment, or to donate to our emergency Coronavirus appeal, please go to our website at https://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/

Good morning everyone,

Well done to those of you logging in to TT Rockstars for your house… some of the matches are looking close! Looking at it, some of you have scored massive points for your time (yes, I’m talking about the Maths Wizard and Sam!) But every little helps – Anouk, Katie, Eva – keep adding up those points like you have done this week 👏🏻

As a reminder, make sure you’re following the internet safety advice we teach and practise in school (and also shared on website).

Here are your suggested activities for the day (based on our normal Thursday timetable):

  3. Number Gym: Can you achieve Lightning Bolt Speed and beat Bond Builder.
  4. RE: We’ve suggested making an ‘Easter project’ on your menu – you continue this or try out a new one. I’ve seen some yummy baking ideas including a non-bake cheesecake made in an Easter egg 😍

Other ideas for Thursday:

  • TT Rockstars:  The Inter House Tournament continues! Play ‘Battle’ to earn your team points.

Two days left of this very strange term. My daily runs / bike rides are really helping me, whilst I’m taking the chance to do things I don’t usually have time to such as playing the piano 🎹 (watch out Mrs Hindson!) I hope you’re spending time doing lots of things that make you happy too. Miss you all,

Miss Whit 🙂
