Thursday 14th May
Yesterday I was in school supervising a few of our key worker children. It was so great to see those of you who were in and I’m looking forward to today!
I had a lovely surprise when I got home yesterday. Our neighbour works for a bakery and brought us lots of delicious pastries! The other day we had three loaves of fresh bread appear on our doorstep too! These acts of kindness are what can make a person smile right now. Can you think of an act of kindness you could do for someone?
As many of us are spending more and more time online at home, it is important for us all to remember that we must keep safe. If we are messaging our friends, we must only send messages that are kind to one another and we shouldn’t be saying anything to anyone that we wouldn’t say to them in person. Remember, any comments you make online do not go away and just because we are using a screen should not be an excuse for being braver and saying comments that are unkind. Treat each other how you would wish to be treated and don’t forget that if you receive anything that makes you upset or uncomfortable then tell an adult straight away. A useful link for parents has been added in the ‘Keeping Safe Online’ sub-page, talk to your parents about this and suggest they look at the advice given to help support you.
Don’t forget the NHS competition – there is a link for this in our Resources and Web Links section.
VE Baking Competition – This is now closed! Well done to Amy-Rose and Nathan whose cakes are on our class gallery to look at. I wonder who Mrs Harazduik will announce as the school winner?
Today’s theme for Thursday is: Things we can help with
Ask your parents today what you can do to help them around the house. It’s good to work together right now, and they need help too.
Have a great day!
Miss Barrett and Mrs Ashby
