One Childhood, One Chance

Daily challenges: Friday 22nd May

It's the last day of term 5....

Good morning everyone,

We've made it to the end of Term 5, not quite how we would normally end a term but please know we are thinking of you all lots and wish we could be together to celebrate the end of another term. I hope the class video has been a nice way to remember and think about your class friends. I know this might cause a mixture of emotions, that is ok. We all have mixed feelings during this very strange time, speak to your family and those around you to let them know how you might be feeling (remember we have our worry button on the website too!). Sometimes speaking about how we feel can be tough (adults find it hard sometimes too) so you could try and find another way to express how you're feeling drawing, painting or being creative can be a good way to show people how you are feeling. 

We hope you have been enjoying the beautiful weather and we hope you have a good half term break. Remember there is a folder on the main blog page with lots of activities and resources in from colouring sheets to craft activities so if you get stuck during half term there may be something in there for you to do :)
