Handwriting

Daily handwriting will be extremely beneficial. This can be from forming lower case and upper case letters to joining words when appropriate. No more than 10minutes is needed or try to do it in a more fun way:

  • Use different mediums – paint, sand, playdough, crayons, chalk outside or even writing on an Ipad app etc
  • Leave secret notes around the house and make it into a game
  • Write a letter or note to friends and family
  • Make a to do list for the day
  • Make a list of movies you would like to watch
  • Make up monster/dinosaur nonsense names
  • Who can make the longest nonsense word

Extra ideas and resources from 4Schools Durham University

Mental Health Awareness Week 
Compassion Matters is a free programme for primary schools from The Dalai Lama Centre for Compassion. This programme aims to create a kinder and happier society by showing our children what compassion is and inspiring them to lead compassionate lives. The programme deepens knowledge of what it means to be human, the experiences and challenges of life and helps children to build skills to support their resilience and long term wellbeing, all of which are particularly relevant at the minute.
At home learning resources available from Educaiton.com. aimed at younger children: These resources come from America and contain a number of activities to promote social and emotional learning. You need to register to access the resources but once registered there are lots of workbooks that can be accessed for free.

Design A Duck Competition with Greggs

 

Greggs has long been a valued supporter of Children In Need, working in Partnership for many years raising much needed funds in support of good causes.

The Annual Duck Race is sponsored by Greggs so the opportunity has risen to ask our schools to join in, have some fun and get creative by designing what could be a winning ‘Greggs’ inspired Duck for the Sweepstake Race.

 

Please use the attached template – information on how to submit your entry is also provided on this sheet. Although your entries DO NOT come to us it would be nice to see a couple of your fantastic creations.  

 

Don’t forget to give your Duck a really cool name, say why he or she is so special and complete the beak ratings.

 

Enjoy and have a ‘Quacking’ time!
