Message from Mrs Ainley
So the end of the sixth week of Lockdown has arrived.
Six weeks is the length of time we have off school in the summer. This was also the week the Year 5 children should have been going on their residential. It is also the week the sun has decided to have a holiday and we might be feeling a little colder. It might also be the week you are feeling a bit fed up of not being able to go out!
Let this week be the week you remind yourself of all of the things you love to do. I have seen a lovely idea where people write these things down and any they are not able to do, they put it in a jar for when Lockdown is over but you will also have a list of things you can do now and things you have only started to do because we cannot go out. I have started a cross stitch; something I haven’t done since I was at school (all of those years ago!). Keep this list somewhere and call it ‘Things I enjoy to do’. You can add to it as you discover new things. Maybe you can have a look at the things your brothers and sisters enjoy and try something from their list. That way, whenever you are feeling a bit fed up, and don’t know what to do next, you can have a look at your list and remind yourself of the things that make you happy. And when Lockdown is over, a jar full of ideas.
I have seen on Padlet that so many of you are enjoying learning how to bake. All of the staff are really looking forward to testing your new creations when we get back to school. So keep practising and keep sharing (just the pictures for now!)
We miss you all terribly and might have a little surprise for you next week!
