Extra Curricular While Social Distancing

While academic learning is important during this period of working from home, we must also appreciate that while social distancing, we should encourage students to also engage with activities away from their formal learning (Google Classroom, Tassomai, Hegathy Maths etc).

Below is a list of activities that students and their families can do while social distancing. These include events that are taking place at specific times like Joe Wicks' morning PE lessons or others that can be done at anytime (a virtual museum tour for example).

While we will work at updating the recommendations on this page each week, our twitter account (@WalthamstowAcad) will tweet activities that are happening on each day of the school closure. Please do follow us on twitter to ensure you do not miss some of the wonderful activities available. Please share any ideas or events with us @WalthastowAcad on twitter so that we can share them with the rest of our school community.

In addition to the list of activities below and those shared on our twitter page, below you will find a list of useful websites with even more social distancing ideas and our very our 'Go Create' pack of ideas which our Art and Design department has put together. A new 'Go create' pack will be uploaded each week for new things for you to try at home.

Extra Curricular

We offer an extended Academy day including a breakfast club, lunchtime activities and a wide-ranging after school extension and enrichment programme. Students throughout the Academy have opportunities to take part in a range of activities enabling them to learn from different people and try things they never thought possible. Through these, students develop high order teamwork and leadership skills. Students of all ages hold positions of responsibility and serve the community. We have an active Academy Council made up of students from each form. This involves all students in consultation and contributes to Academy improvement planning.
