As we return to 'normal' school at the start of the new academic year, we wanted to leave some reminders of the work that we did during the spring and summer terms earlier this year. We thought it was a timely reminder of the joys of homeschooling that we all faced last year!
A reminder of the CVJS home schooling experience!
Here's a reminder of some of the videos, letters and activities that we provided for you last year during lockdown.
Keeping in touch videos and newsletters

Online learning platforms
The links below will take you to the web pages for these online resources. You should have your user names and passwords already. If you can't remember them, contact your teacher via Google Classroom and they will be able to help you out.
The BBC have launched a fab range of daily lessons that can be used by children at home. Although this is an online activity, everything is there and ready for you to use. It is completely free too!
You can use Google Classroom to upload work and to keep in touch with your teachers. If you've forgotten your username, it is the first 4 letters of your first name, the first letter of your surname and the year that you will leave CVJS - followed by @cvjs.org.uk
(The year for Y6 is 20, for Y5 it is 21, for Y4 it is 22 and for Y3 it is 23).

All pupils at CVJS have free access to this maths website. You can download it as an APP too. You do have your own usernames and passwords - but you can register with new details (for free) if you have forgotten these.
There are 2 parts to this fabulous resource. The part that we've used most at CVJS is the coding section. However, if you go to the Espresso pages, there are hundreds of resources for you to look at! Just go to the 'log in' button and enter username student14049 and password cvjs1234
These are some great resources that can be used at home to work through with your children. They talk about feelings and emotions and are differentiated for children of different ages. We use lots of Facts4Life resources at school and we like them a lot. Definitely worth a look.
