Wow! It's February and week five of home learning! How did that happen?
We all say it each week but well done to all of our families who are home learning - keep going and hopefully we will all see each other very soon.
As you probably know, this week is Children’s Mental Health Week and has the theme 'Express Yourself', and as part of this week we are encouraging all children, whether at home or at school, to take a well-being day. This is an opportunity for the children to choose some activities that will support their mental well-being and happiness. We will be launching this special week on Tuesday 2 February at 1.30pm via a KS1 Zoom meeting (the link will be posted on the Class Dojo class story pages). We will share some suggested activities for families to discuss and decide to take part in on their well-being day. We will be doing the same in school and holding our well-being day on Friday. Obviously families are welcome to come up with activities of their own and hold their well-being day on a day that best suits them.
As a result of the well-being day this week, we will only be setting 4 days worth of learning and this will also be reflected in the class timetables. On your fifth day we want you to take part in activities that express you, make you feel good and make you feel happy. We would love you to share with us how you use your wellbeing day.
On the bottom of the work for this week, you will also find well-being challenges that you might want to look at on your wellbeing day or throughout the week. Within school we will be using this challenges daily to settle the children and emphasise the importance of looking after our wellbeing.
Have a wonderful week home learners and keep in contact!
