Suggested tasks for today

We want your focus for this week to be as physically and emotionally healthy as possible! Routines for the children and adults have changed so much that all we want you to do this week is to:-

  • enjoy being together, 
  • read stories together, 
  • play games, 
  • play in the garden/go for a walk and breathe in fresh air.

 

If you would like to be creative then why not paint, draw or collage a picture of a rainbow. 🌈 Join the #chasearainbow 🌈 campaign and display your rainbow in your front window to spread happiness and put a smile on the faces of the key workers who are working harder than ever for us.

You can email your rainbow pictures to us and we will make a Reception photo collage to display on this page. 

       

We know it’s very overwhelming and we are all trying to find our new ‘normal’. 

 

If you feel that you would like your child to complete some phonics or maths based activities then please find below lots of suggested websites and apps. We have sent you login details for the above maths and phonics sites. But please for now concentrate on making your family feel as safe and happy as possible. 🥰
