Great Crosby Catholic Primary School
We hope that you are all well and managing to stay safe. Thank you for the fabulous activities that you are doing with your children during lockdown, it has been lovely to see such creativity on our school Instagram account. As of the week beginning 22.6.20, in line with wider opening, we are making some changes to the activities on the website. Here are the changes:
There is a timetable below for parents and carers to view from Friday evening of the week before the timetable is due to start. The timetable sets out lessons for each day, with links made to any websites we may be using. Staff in school will also adhere to the timetable, where possible; if your child is a keyworker child, and does not attend school every day, there is an expectation that when the child is at home, they will cover that day’s lessons at home, where possible.
In our planning, we will add links that you can use each day to support some of the work/activities your child may like to do.

This work comes from the Come and See Religious Education programme which is taught in all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Liverpool. We have given a general guide to the learning opportunities that your child may have come across in school and have only suggested and selected a small amount of the programme. The activities aim to keep Religious Education practical and fun. They are in Year groups however, there is no harm in completing other year group work as this will help your child to remember and strengthen their learning.
The first part of learning is called – EXPLORE. This shares your child’s everyday experiences and helps them to see how the Catholic faith is lived in their everyday lives. The second part, called – REVEAL shares bible stories that links to their everyday life.
Please note that the activities have been adapted as far as possible to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Please read pages 1, 2 and 3 of the Come and See RE Home Learning booklet. Please click on the image for the download link.
On Friday July 10th we are holding our annual 'wear a kit for Jack' fundraising day. We would like our children to wear a sports kit of their choice and post a picture to our Instagram page, back view or face obscured, with the tag line, 'I'm wearing my kit for Jack'.
Children who are coming to school should also come in a sports kit.
