Today is national ‘Time to Talk’ day - encouraging dialogue as part of all of our well-being.
In support of this, we have decided that we will have a day of limiting screen time and setting the children some tasks to do that support their well-being. We will continue with our scheduled zooms today as normal as we recognise the ‘connection’ of zoom is so important for many of the children and then you can try any of these suggestions of how the rest of the day can be spent.
Please feel free to do the work allocated (below) but we would like today to be as screen-free as possible!
Take photos of your activities and we'll post them on our Twitter feed!!
