Stay Home and Stay Busy
Those of us who are able to are currently helping the NHS and our communities by staying home. This isn’t always easy and finding activities and ideas can be hard.
Please check this page on a regular basis for some craft ideas, fun activities and more!
Keeping our little ones safe online!
Our children are spending more time online at the moment. We want to keep them as safe as possible. Please click on the link below to access some information about the latest apps such as HouseParty, Zoom and Netflix Party.
As some of us return to school, we will have an opportunity to meet together virtually to worship God. We may be a scattered school, but we are still part of the Childwall Church of England Primary School worshipping community!
Each day, there will be a different collective worship posted here for you to use at home or in school. Miss Wikeley has included plenty of music for reflection in her section of this website.
The wonderful B-Tales are also continuing to produce collective worships for us. These will be sign-posted to use each Tuesday.

Prayer Spaces at Home
Here are some great ideas for creating prayer spaces at home!
Here are some lovely educational resources in the form of a home hunt to keep your little ones busy at home! There are resources for each year group. Happy hunting!
Home Hunt Instructions:
1. Cut out all the clues along the dotted lines.
2. The clues are numbered on the back with instructions of where to hide each one (in red).
3. You DO NOT need to use ALL the clues in the Hunt (for example, if you think there is some content your child hasn’t learnt yet or if you would like to shorten a Hunt). To leave clues out simply hide the next clue you would like to include where the original next clue would have gone (for example, if you would like to omit clues 4-7, hide clue 8 where clue 4 would have gone).
4. A Hunt also DOES NOT need to be completed in ONE go/day (You can finish on an earlier clue and save the rest for later). But remember to hide the “HUNT STAR” where the new last clue points to (for example, if you decide to finish with clue 8 rather than clue 13, hide the Hunt Star wherever the answer to clue 8 is)!
5. It’s a nice idea to leave treats with some clues and/or something special in the final hiding place with the Hunt Star.
6. Once the trail has been laid you can give the first clue to the Home Hunter to begin the Hunt!
7. With each Home Hunt there are instructions on the first clue for how to solve the clues.
JK Rowling Introduces ‘The Ickabog’
Calling all budding artists! J.K. Rowling is inviting you to help illustrate The Ickabog for her. Every day when chapters of the story are uploaded, she will be making suggestions for what you might like to draw or paint to illustrate the story as it goes along. You should let your imagination run wild!
The best bit is, if you are between seven and twelve years old, your parent or guardian on your behalf can enter your drawings or paintings into the official competition being run by J.K. Rowling’s publishers, for a once in a lifetime chance to be featured in The Ickabog book, which is published in November.

A huge thank you to one of our families for sharing this with us. This was created by two of our parents, who are Opticians, to promote eye health and provide some fun activities for their younger patients and other children. It’s definitely worth taking a look!

‘Things may feel unsettled right now, but one thing is clear: small acts of kindness can make a difference. There has certainly been an outpouring of kindness across the country and children can play their role too.’
