Health and wellbeing challenges from Mrs Glover

Date: 27th Mar 2020 @ 2:57pm

Hello, Mrs Glover here! 

I hope everyone is staying safe, having fun and working hard on your learning. I'm going to post a Health and Wellbeing Challenge every day for people to do if they choose to. I'll be doing them all too and posting pictures where I can. Please feel free to e-mail any pictures or comments to your home learning e-mail addresses!

Challenge number 1: Go on a mindfulness walk. Write or draw 5 things that you can see, hear, feel, smell or touch (make sure you have an adult with you if necessary and stay far way from people you may see when you're out, although you can still say a friendly hello!) You could even do this in your garden if you have one!

Here's a picture of my mindfulness walk that I went on at lunch time today!

I saw trees and water, I heard birds and rustling, I could smell different plants and I could feel the sun on my face :-)

Hello from Mrs Turner

Date: 27th Mar 2020 @ 10:03am

Hello again everyone! 

I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying all the home learning your teachers have been giving you to do. I have seen some of your emails and it looks like you are doing brilliantly so well done!  I have been working away at home, I start every morning with the Joe Wicks work out, I wonder how many of you have been doing it too. Remember it’s so important to keep active even when you are at home. 

I had another thought, yesterday Penny helped me with the washing, we paired the socks together! I thought this is a good time for you all to be helping out your grown-ups at home. I am sure they would really appreciate it. 

I miss you all so much and can't wait to get back to school. 

Take care,

Mrs Turner

Monday 23rd March 2020 

Good morning everyone I hope you are all up and looking forward to a day of learning at home. It is a beautiful day perhaps you can have some time in the garden. I am sorry that I wasn't in school last week, both the government and Mrs Hughes advised that I stay at home but please don't worry I am not sick! I really do miss you all, I was so enjoying going around all the school and teaching so many of you, what amazing children you are. 

Year 6 I am especially sorry that we have not had the chance to say goodbye. I remember you all so fondly from year 4 and wish you well with all that the future holds. I believe that each and every one of you has a special future and encourage to grab every opportunity that life gives you. Work hard at high school it will be so worth it. 

For everybody else I look forward to seeing you soon - imagine how great that first day will be when we are allowed back into school. I can't wait!  I have seen that Joe Wicks is doing a PE lesson every morning on line, I would encourage you to join in its so important that you stay active even when you are stuck inside. 

Stay safe and I will see you soon.

Love Mrs Turner (Hibbs)
