Hi Year 5 and 6!!!
I hope that you are all well and making the most of your home-learning opportunities! Salma and Theo have been creating such fabulous resources and activities for you to complete. You guys are so fantastic at learning!!
I have been busy on my ELSA blog (which you can find on the school website) Salma will attach a photo to show you how to find it. It really is so important that we look after our mental well-being during this time. I try to post different activities associated with looking after our mental health.
My aim is to create a virtual ‘The Space’ on Purple Mash where we can communicate whenever you may need to talk about a worry or if you want just have a chat /take part in an activity to brighten your day :)
I am logging into Purple Mash each day to check on what you are all doing (the learning is AMAZING) and I am replying to any messages that I receive - PLEASE do message me! I love to hear from you! It really makes my day to know what you’re up too and how you are enjoying the learning.
Remember though, little and often home learning is better than cramming it all into one day! You should also take the time in your day to look after your physical and mental health.
DO things that you makes you feel HAPPY! Please don't spend too much time on technology! ( I can sense the eye roll at this statement haha)
Whether you...read your favourite book, bake a yummy cake, listen to some music, dance around your living room, see how many kick ups you can do in 30 seconds, doodle on paper, build a fort from pillows and blankets or relax to your favourite movie...
Do something that makes you feel happy!!
I know at the moment it can feel a little bit daunting for some of you. Not knowing when we may return to school or when you will get to see relatives and friends is scary for a young person to understand but just imagine the immense feeling you will feel when you are finally reunited with the people that you love. You will learn so much from this experience. You will learn how to be grateful for what you have and that material things really don’t mean nothing at all.
Just before I go...
Think of this experience as like being stuck in traffic in a tunnel. You know and you can see the light at the end which is the way out. You don’t know how long you may be stuck in this tunnel. You may begin to get bored, you may try find things to do to keep you entertained in this dark tunnel. You may get annoyed, increasingly frustrated... BUT what keeps you calm is that you know that there IS a way out and you’ll get there soon. Keep moving towards the light at the end. We will all be out of this tunnel soon.
Keep positive - keep smiling - keep being YOU!
Missing you all more everyday!Take care & wash ya hands!
