Email from the Diocese

9th April 2020
I had an email from the Diocese this morning. It had some lovely resources for Easter on it, including ideas for making an Easter garden and some activities linked to chocolate, which I have put on the curriculum section of this website.
 
The email also mentioned that on Good Friday at 9:30am Sue Bowen, whom many of our children know from her visits to St Martin's as our Diocese Schools Advisor, will broadcast a message from her home and garden. The presentation is predominantly aimed at Upper KS1/Lower KS2, though contains messages that will equally engage children of all ages, and adults. Sue’s message will be available at 9.30am on the Portsmouth Diocese Youtube channel at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPWKuh_cdZY. The video will also be posted on the Portsmouth diocesan website at https://www.portsmouth.anglican.org/video-reflections/. .
 
The Diocese are also recommending Guardians of Ancora, which is a free game-app (download from AppStore, Google Play or Amazon Appstore), giving children and families the opportunity to 'enter into' Bible stories and explore and adventure in a digital world.  You need to create a login to reach the downloadable resources. I have to say, it is not one I know, but if the Diocese is recommending it, it is probably worth a look.  https://guardiansofancora.com/
