A Little Message of Encouragement!

 

Thursday 2nd April  

Good morning (or afternoon)  I hope you are well.  I have been very busy in my garden this week and I love watching all my flowers start to grow now Spring is here.  I have also been chasing my little boy around as his favourite game is "Chase Me!".  What is the best thing you have done this week?  Try and take some photos every day to help remind you of all the exciting things you have been doing.

Keep smiling!

 

Wednesday 1st April

It's April Fools Day! I hope you are not planning on playing any tricks on your family.  I have added your new pages with some simple activities today.  Don;t forget you can always go back and practice activities from previous days, especially the ball skills and core strength activities.  I have added a nice little Spring activity for you too, it is a good time to uses all your senses to explore the beautiful world around you!  This also helps to ground you and calm you when you are feeling overwhelmed.

Have a good day!

I hope you are all doing well.  Here are your new Jump Ahead pages and Lego challenge.  I am sure you are really starting to miss your friends now.  Don't forget to call or video message them.  You could also write them a letter, it is always exciting to receive post through the door.  As well as that you could start a little daily diary, keeping a record of what you have done each day you have been away from school.  

Keep active and positive!!

Hello again, I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Did you see the sleet and snow? That was unexpected after such a beautiful week.  I have posted up  a few more activities for you today and 1 more Lego challenge.  Hopefully you are trying to complete a few activities set by your teachers.  If not, maybe today is the day to try 1 or 2.   

Stay safe!

Good Morning.  Another lovely sunny one.  Today I have added a daily Lego challenge for those who have and enjoy playing with Lego.  It needs you to use your imagination and be as creative as you can.  If you can, take some photos of your masterpieces and I would love to see them when we return to school.  It's nearly the weekend so keep working hard, playing nicely and exploring.

Look after yourselves!

 

Thursday 26th March 2020

Hello again.  I hope you are trying a few ideas from your learning packs and class timetables.  Here are a few more Jump Ahead activities for you today.  Hopefully you have a ball you can use.  If you find the ball skills too easy then try to set yourself a challenge.  How many can you do without dropping?  Now try to beat it!

Keep up the good work!!

 

Wednesday 25th March 2020

Good morning everyone, I hope you are making the most of this gorgeous weather.  Each day I will be setting a few Jump Ahead type activities to help keep your minds and bodies active and strong.  There will be activities for the Infants Jump Ahead group and the Junior groups.  You may want to try and squeeze these into your busy day.  They should only take about 20 minutes altogether. 

Some activities may need printing out and some may require some simple equipment.  Don't worry if you can do not do these.  Either skip the activity or try drawing out the activity sheet as best you can (they are quite simple).

Have fun!!
