Home Learning

Optional Half Term screen-free activities.

In case you would like some ideas for activities away from the screen over the half term week, we have collected a few here:

SJS Half Term Bingo - we have created a Bingo style activity grid, with effort stars for each activity.

Lego challenges - can you complete them all?

Growing things - how green are your fingers?

A selection of off-screen ideas

Conversation Cards - some general questions, some questions around screen etiquette for parents and children, and some questions about online safety - we think these are brilliant and well worth discussing at home.


School Closure suggested Home Learning

UPDATE: Lockdown 2021 - our online learning has shifted to Google Classroom. Use your Google Classroom login to find all the learning that your teachers have set for you each day. 

We have left the challenges and activities from Lockdown last March (2020) for you to dip into and try if you are looking for something extra or different to fill your days. These could be used if you are looking to fill your INSET or half term days with some learning! 

NSPCC Virtual Assembly - June 2020 (Anxiety and Worries)

The NSPCC has produced a virtual school assembly on 5 June 2020. The assembly, aimed at children aged 7-11 years old and run in partnership with the Department for Education (DfE), features an introduction from Ant and Dec and highlights from the NSPCC Speak out. Stay safe. programme. The assembly focusses on anxiety, including the worries that children are facing during the coronavirus crisis, why they may feel anxious or worried and ways they can be supported.

You can find the NPSCC Assembly here


Below is a grid of challenges and fun activities that have been created by the subject leads in school for you to explore if you would like to undertake a different challenge! None of these are compulsory - just here to support in a wider range of things to do. Click on the picture to find the activities.

Skipping Challenge

February is ‘Healthy Heart Month’ and what better way to work out and get your heart pumping than by skipping!

During the week of 8 - 12 February, we are challenging you to skip every day and try to beat your score! At the end of the week, you should send in your best score, for the 60 seconds attempt. We as a school will then select the top 5 girls and top 5 boys scores for each year group and send them in to the Southampton Games Organisers. Prizes will be awarded to the top school in each year group as part of the Virtual School Games Skipping event.

Email with your results.
