A message from the Co-Heads of School…
We would like to thank Mrs Battersby, head teacher of the ERP, in leading the learning this week at Haxby Road Primary Academy. Once again, the children have had a fabulous time with their learning being focussed around the letter E. The children learning from home, continue to have tasks set for them via the Google Classroom, Seesaw and Evidence Me. We would like to thank our parents for encouraging and supporting their children through these interactive platforms. For those families who cannot access these platforms, please contact school for some additional resources to keep your child busy.
Please see below a list of useful websites that have been updated to support your child’s learning at home.

Real PE at Home – online resources. Our Haxby Road children and their families now have a login to real P.E.
Highlighted in RED, are the login details to access it.
Real PE at home includes an online programme, which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities, challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity.
For children in Key Stage 2 there are carefully selected personal best challenges, skills and games designed for the home and garden. Daily and weekly guidance is provided for both programmes in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.
There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months. Here are the details to access Real PE at home:

PE & Ebor Academy Trust
Play your part in keeping Ebor active!
Keep Ebor active is the message from PE leaders at schools across our trust as they announce the Team Ebor Virtual School Games for pupils, parents – and staff.
The challenges are set by North Yorkshire Sport every Monday at 10am on their website here. All schools in the trust – whether in North Yorkshire or not – are invited to take on the challenges as part of Ebor and to then send their contributions to Ebor’s PE and sports specialist Gareth Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org. All entries will be considered and the best will receive prizes.
Mr Jones has put together a document, which features hints and tips and showcases some videos from staff across the trust. See it here. “This is an amazing opportunity for everyone in our trust to create their own personal best and compete against others – and it will be great fun!” says Mr Jones.
A free online course – Supporting Your Child’s Emotional Resilience During Covid-19 – will be available for 1 month, between 29th April and the 29th May 2020 and is aimed at parents and carers of children aged 4-11 years old. The course will include advice and strategies on how we can best support our children to strengthen their emotional resilience in this unprecedented situation, enabling them to navigate successfully through these uncertain times.
