Wednesday 13th May
Did you ‘shine a light’ in your window last night to celebrate International Nurses Day? We did, and as a family we talked about how important nurses are for everyone in the world, particularly at this challenging time.
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 – deadline is TODAY! Please send in your photo entries. All information is in last week’s resources
Today’s theme for Wednesday is: Wellbeing Wednesday
Take some time today to think about yourself. We all need to have calm and quiet moments. Have a relaxing bath or why not try out some meditation or yoga. Here are some links for two YouTube clips – one for yoga and one for meditation, but you may like to find your own.
Have a great day!
Miss Barrett and Mrs Ashby
