We hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and well. Thank you once again for all that you are doing at home – we are eternally grateful and can’t thank you enough.
It was lovely to speak to so many of you during week and great to hear about all of the wonderful things that are happening at home. We will be catching up with those who we didn’t get to speak to this week.
As you know, we should have been departing for Lakeside, Windermere on Monday morning. Therefore, we have provided some team building activities that the children might like to take part in at home and also given them some suggestions for how they can recreate the atmosphere of their residential. We know this isn’t the same but we hope they (and you) enjoy some of these activities. We would love to see any pictures you take so please email us or tweet them.
Thank you once again to those of you who have been in touch with us on our class email. If you have any questions or would like to share any of your child’s work with us, remember you can contact us at Y6@strobertbellarmine.co.uk. The children can also contact us themselves or share work with us on here too.
This week, as part of their English work, the children will be watching a video called 'The Piano'. There are some links that they will need to access during the week and we would be grateful if you could read the activity documents found in the English section and check that you are happy with the websites before they begin. Please note, although there is a link to the poem, The Seven Ages of a Man by William Shakespeare, we do not want the children to access this or complete this section. As outlined on the English page, we would just like them to work on the activities that focus on The Piano.
We have included a toolkit on mental health and well-being in the PSHE section of the website and you will find some resources to support your family in this document. There is also guidance on how to answer children's questions about coronavirus and how to start conversations about their feelings. We hope that you find these useful.
On Thursday 18th June at 10am, CAFOD are hosting a special national assembly.The theme is 'Creating a hopeful summer'. They would like us to get together to hear how the lives of others around the world are being impacted by coronavirus. Please see the link on the RE section of our work this week to access the link to the assembly.
As we can’t take part in our annual Sports Day this year, Mrs Liggat has signed us up to take part in The Rainbow Games, which is a national event that will be running from Saturday 20th June until Friday 26th June. Details of this event can be found in the PE section of our work this week. We have provided the children with a score card and would like them to email it to us after the event and we will send them a certificate for taking part.
Finally, please remember, as we always say, although it is important that your child continues with their learning whilst at home, their health and well-being (along with your own) is just as important. Therefore, please ensure that you continue to take time as a family to relax. If your child is struggling with their work one day, please factor in more breaks for them or direct them to some of the mindfulness activities that we have provided. You are all doing an amazing job and we can’t thank you enough.
Take care and stay safe.
We look forward to catching up with some of you over the phone or through emails this week.
Love Mrs McQuiggan and Mrs Johnson xx
