I hope that you all had a restful and enjoyable Easter even if it may of felt a little bit strange. It really is a time where we might feel as if everything is a bit 'strange' or 'different'. If you are feeling like that, you are not alone. A lot of children, adults too, will be having the same thoughts as you.
I have shared and will continue to share ways you can manage these feelings over the next few weeks in my blog and on Purple Mash.
I have put some photos of what I have been up to on my blog today. As you know I have asthma ( I know some of you have asthma too as we've shared how we look after our condition) so I have to be really careful when I go outside. I need to wear a mask (my neighbour made me a leopard print one!) and sometimes I wear gloves (If I don't wear them I wash my hands lots and try not to touch anything but the handles of my bike) but I have been going outside for an hour a day on my bike to not only look after my physical health but its a really good way to look after my mental health too.
I have put some photos of what I have seen whilst on my travels around where I live.
Can you spot Canary Wharf?
There was an incredible display of rocks with heartwarming messages on a river bank close to my house that really made me smile. They were made by a group of families who are from my community. What a lovely thing to do!
Something I also want to share is that we have some new children joining our VPS family! A big warm welcome to you all.
VPS children - I have created a 'welcome' blog on Purple Mash (Emily's ELSA Blog) for you to share your thoughts and introduce yourselves and our school.
Remember... Teachers and support staff are still here to listen to you if you need us. Purple Mash has been such a great way of connecting with different pupils across the school! If you are still unsure of how to use Purple Mash at home let your teachers know by contacting us by email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can hopefully sort it out for you.
