Thursday 2nd April - We are going through a difficult time right now , but there are positives! Many people have shown great kindness, helping and supporting others in the community. We are all learning how to cope with this strange situation. We are learning about resilience, about who is ready to help us and who will cheer us up when we feel down.
I want you to interview your family about what they feel we learn in difficult situations - ANY difficult situation that they have experienced! SEE QUESTIONS BELOW...
Have a chat! No need to record in your purple book - unless you want to.
Wednesday 1st April - Make your own wordsearch!

Write a list of the words you use as you write them into your grid. Ask someone in your family to complete your wordsearch.
