School At Home Resources

In response to the Coronavirus crisis, we have created this library of resources for teachers and others. More material will be added all the time, so please keep checking back.  If there is something specific that you would like us to create for your school, please get in touch with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

For those of you teaching preschool children, you might like to have a look at the videos that we have been producing for our toddler group.  Each week we will add a Bible story, plus an associated craft that can be easily done at home.  These can be found on this YouTube channel and selecting the "Tots Storytimes" and "Tots Crafts" playlists.  We are also putting together a playlist of "Tots Songs".  Each song is one that is suitable for preschool aged children and builds on the Christian ethos that our toddler group has.  You can also join us each Wednesday morning at 11am for a live singing time altogether on our Tots facebook page.

For those of you teaching primary aged children, you might like to have a look at the resources that are also on the same  YouTube channel.  This includes a "Primary School Collective Worship" playlist (or find the most recent one below).  Each week we will be producing a short talk, based on a theme or story from the Bible.  A separate video has an associated craft activity that helps children to engage with the talk and apply it in their own lives.  There is also a suggested song to go with that week's worship - you might like to encourage your pupils to listen to this in the background whilst they are making their craft.

Watch "Pilgrim's Progress" for free at home

During this time, you can watch this animated film for free.  This would be a great suggestion for KS2 children to enjoy at home with their families.  Click on this link to watch the "Pilgrim's Progress".

 

"growing up.... growing wise @ home" - a resource for Year 6s

This is a resource to help parents to teach their children about God's design for puberty, relationships, marriage, sexual intimacy and having children.  Produced by Lovewise whose material is widely used in Primary Schools, this has been adapted for parents to use at home and could be a wonderful way to support your Y6s who have missed out on some of the most vital preparation before heading to High School.   There is a small cost for this, however, if you would like to recommend this resource to parents at your school and the cost is a barrier, please get in touch with Teresa to talk about how our church can support you with this.

 

Other Resources

Have a look at the selection of pdf colouring pages below - some are pictures to colour in, some are decorative Bible verses.  Please feel free to use these for RE, art or PHSE lessons.  In order not to make this page too long and full of information that is hard to sift through, I have collated lots of different resources from different sources on Pinterest.  I will be adding new things to this all the time.  Please note that this link takes you to my own personal Pinterest account (not the churches), so feel free to ignore my collection of recipes etc!  Many of the boards are specific to particular Bible stories or themes, but where I have found more general resources, I have collected them together on the board called "School at home resources".  I hope that you find this helpful.
