Monday March 22nd 2020

Good morning everyone, today is the first day of something different, it will feel strange not being together today. Some of us are at home and some of us are at school but we will all be engaging in the same learning tasks together, though not at exactly the same time. This new way of doing things might take some getting used to but as Albert Einstein said, “in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity”. So, let’s see these next few weeks as an opportunity.

May I suggest that you set a daily timetable that fits in with your family’s pattern of life. Make sure to plan in time for maths, english and your afternoon activity as well as time to rest, read, be active and creative.

I think there are some things that we can do to maintain our sense of community, even though we are not physically in the same place.

Everyday I will put a thought for the day on this blog and I recommend that you spend some time in the day listening to our music of the week. It would be good to carry on with music from John Williams. My suggestion for this week is the theme from ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’. Here’s the link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U519RdznMA. As always, only use Youtube when you are with an adult.

For those of us at school we will be tuned into Joe Wicks at 9am as we join him for a live PE lesson, perhaps you could do the same.

I hope you enjoy a good day. Don’t forget to send us photographs of your completed learning activities.
