Monday 22nd June
I have attached an activity booklet below which is the same as the one the children will be working through this week in school. Every resource is in there, along with some break time activities and puzzles throughout the week. As this is a booklet designed for Monday-Thursday, a Friday can be used to catch up on anything or use the resource links below for learning.
As already discussed, I will only be available on a Friday to reply to any emails or queries.
The activities are designed for the children in school so you could adapt some of the questions at the start of the pack to ask what they are looking forward to when your child does return to school and engage them in some mindfulness and well being conversation.
Here are the video links for the numbers to 100 work –
