Morning Message-Friday 12th June 2020
Good Morning Y6,
I hope you are all safe and well. This week has been lovely since we have seen some faces in school. It has also been an interesting week as staff and children have been discussing the impact of the Coronavirus on our everyday lives. We have also learnt about “Perspective Taking”, “Choosing Optimism” and “Savouring Happy Experiences”. Discussions in class have been great and we have learnt to stay positive and optimistic in all situations. I hope that you have also been keeping up with PSHE activities this week.
Remember to keep up with your daily reading, writing and Maths activities so that you don't struggle when you return to school. Teachers are monitoring your use of seesaw and bug club. Should you need support with these, please don't hesitate to ask.
Make sure you complete the Jo Wicks PE activity as well.
Hope you have a good day.
I'll catch up with you later.
