Learning Outside the Classroom Wednesday 25th March

Date: 25th Mar 2020 @ 12:48pm

Hello lovely children,

I hope that you are all well and are getting used to our new way of learning at home. I know that it feels very different to being at school each day, but I can see that so many of you are keeping in touch with each other through the website, which is fantastic. I know that others are using Skype, Zoom and Facetime to speak to each other, and that will help you all to feel like you are still part of a class even though you are learning in different places.

I understand that some of you might be worried about coronavirus or about when we will come back to school again. It is okay to feel worried and uncertain, talking to each other and the adults around you will help you to feel more reassured. Mrs Davies is posting lots of good ways to look after your emotional and mental health on our website. If you want help to think of ways to keep the worries from growing too big, this is a really good place to start. You can also send her messages if you would like a longer chat too.

We are now into the second week of isolation at our house and have been trying to find fun things to do while we are all at home. We don’t spend too much time watching the news and we have been sure to keep in touch with family and friends. We have been doing lots of reading, some film and music making and also some creative writing. I think we probably need to do some more maths, just to keep our brains ticking over!

Today we will go and spend some time in the garden – we have missed feeling sunshine on our skin over the last few days. It is important to get outside and I know that some of you have been doing some exercise and physical challenges outside as well as inside. This will help to keep you healthy and well while we are not at school. I’d love to see what you have been doing. Maybe you could post some pictures that might inspire others to get active too.

I have decided to post a challenge for you to complete every school day. If you want to join in, then you are very welcome to and you can post your replies below my message.

Today’s challenge:
