READING challenge

Date: 6th Jul 2020 @ 9:41am


Reading is a fantastic way of taking our imagination to new and exciting places. Reading can broaden our mindset, show us new information and take us on a journey of discovery. 

This week's challenge is to read a book, a comic, a blog, a recipe,  the news or the back of a cereal packet - anything that lets you learn something new or take you to a new place in your imagination.

Maybe try out a new school blog page that you haven't read before.

Why not send a photo of you reading and I can share it here for you to inspire others to get reading:

This week's wellbeing challenge is the FOOD CHALLENGE

Good nutrition ( eating foods which give us which our body needs like vitamins, protein, calcium and many more) is really important for your well being. Eating good food can make you feel happier both physically and mentally. 

Your challenge this week is to make a healthy snack or meal for someone in your house. You might like to research some healthy snacks to find out what you could choose to make. 

Send me a photo of your snack or meal and we can share it on this blog :

I can't wait to see your healthy food photos!

The CONNECT challange

During these strange times, many of us have been staying inside our houses and flats and not seeing family or friends. This can sometimes make us feel sad or lonely. So, your challenge this week is to connect with a friend you haven't seen for a while, or someone in your family , or someone you think might like to hear a kind word from you. Maybe you can make them smile ?

There are many ways you can connect with others:

give them a call



write a letter 

even give them a surprise ( social distancing ) visit or make them a homemade present or card.

It will really make their day - and make you feel happy too !

Let me know how you brighten up someone's day :

You'll make my day!
