''Now, as always, we are all in this together, and we can only get through it together'' -This Is Beyond.
But everyone, something we can think positively about is that we have information today that we didn’t have yesterday, and every day we are learning more about how to stay safe and get through this. We are going to be okay.!
There are experts who are really good at protecting us from things like this. They are working around the clock to make sure we are safe, and I trust them, so try trust them too.
We can do this Team VPS!
By now you probably have heard that we will not be returning back to school until the 18th January.
This is because we need to keep ourselves and other people safe as the virus COVID 19, is at the moment quite high in Tower Hamlets.
Closing the school is something that we all really don't want to do as we love teaching you all in the classroom, but the government think it is the best choice of action to make sure things get better and we can overcome COVID 19.
What’s happening is different from what we’re used too. There’s no ‘right’ way to feel and different people will feel different things. It’s okay to feel whatever you feel.
You proved you could do 'remote learning' once before and I am certain that you can do it again!
On the ELSA blog I will try to leave you some things to do in your day to look after your emotional wellbeing.
You have Google Classrooms to chat to us if you need us for anything.
The Purple Mash ELSA blog is also back in action so please reach out to me or your teachers if you have any questions.
Reach for the stars!
On a scrap piece of paper why don't you draw out some stars or make a spider diagram of all the things you would like to achieve during 2021.
It is sometimes good to set goals but be kind to yourself.
Make sure the goals you want to achieve have a possible outcome that you can work towards.
You might want to:
- Read a certain amount of books by a certain date.
- Learn a new skill (e.g. - Language, sport, crafting)
-Make new friendships.
- Become more confident in class.
- Become healthier and increase your fitness levels.
There are lots of things you might want to achieve so have a good think and set yourself some reachable goals! If you need help with this - reach out on Google Classrooms or Purple Mash - and I can help you think about what might be the best goal for you!
