Dear Children, Parents and Carers,
Please find below some useful resources that may assist you during this tricky time. I know some of you like colouring and ‘doing’ things, so have a look through these and see if you fancy filling some in. Some require writing, so maybe you will need some help if you find writing hard, but I’d say just do it how you want to – it’s not a spelling test!
I hope you find some of them helpful, please check with an adult before you download or print anything.
I look forward to seeing you all one day again soon,
Mrs McEwan J
Action for Happiness
This website is a useful resource that nudges us to try to remain positive and actively encourage happiness. I know it is unbearable when you are told to, “count your blessings” and “look on the bright side” when you’re feeling down or stressed, but research shows us that training our brains to think more positively reduces stress and anxiety. My mantra is that there is no point in teaching a man to swim when he is drowning, so do the brain training when you are feeling calm and then when you feel as if you may be sinking, the training will hopefully kick in and you can tap into a more balanced mindset. Please also do this with your children and enjoy just a few minutes of brain training together. You may be amazed by the results!

Rev'd Peter and others at St Michael & All Angels church, particularly the Pop In organisers, are praying for all the school community at this time. If you have a particular prayer request, you are very welcome to email it to Rev'd Peter at: firstname.lastname@example.org and if you have any questions related to spiritual or faith issues, to do with the current situation or anything else, please talk to your teacher and then email Rev'd Peter, who will try to give an answer...!
Take care, stay safe and keep learning
with love, prayers and blessings
Rev'd Peter Ostli-East
