Well Dosbarth Raglan, another Wednesday has come along and we are all in such a strange situation, it's difficult to know what to say...
Here’s What I Want you all to Know When We’re Not Together…
I am thinking of you and missing you daily. The memories of your smiles, stories, and antics bring me joy in rough times and I look forward to seeing you again.
The whole purpose of this quarantine time is to keep as many of us safe and healthy as possible. So we want all our pupils to know that they should stay home and stay safe so that everything can return to normal as quickly as possible.
School is important but so is your health. Take care of yourself and each other. No matter what happens this year, be proud of yourself and your ability to adapt to extreme circumstances. Which this is!
We know being home is tough on everyone, so now is the time to dig deep and be kind. Be kind to your family. Help out around the house.
While we are apart, learn with your family—learn some family history with a photo album or read with a family member.
Being home means school time is a lot shorter. I hope you all take the time to figure out what you love and find out more about it.
One of the best ways to relieve stress and discover what matters to you is to get creative. Even though I really don't enjoy Art, I hope you create art in any way that matters to you.
Make some art. Any art. Even if it’s just a pen and lined paper. Bake cookies and decorate them. Work through the stress by being creative.
One of the best, safe activities for you to do is get outside and play or exercise. So I hope that you are doing this every single day. Kick a ball around. Walk the dog. Just try to get outside. Look around your garden and discover what Spring looks like!
It’s easy to feel helpless in situations like this, but we can make small differences. I hope you all will create "We will get through this signs" for your windows. I am hoping you will be supportive and kind to each other remotely as well.
Lift people up. Please call or text someone (a friend, your grandparent, or a cousin) to say hi. Knowing people are out there thinking of them can make all the difference in the world.
I want you all to know that I haven’t gone anywhere! We are all just waiting until it’s safe enough to be back in the classroom. Teaching you all everyday is my purpose, so I am feeling a little lost without you.
When this is over we will pick up right where we left off!
Even my Year 6 children!
