Daily Update - 26th March

We hope you are all keeping well and bearing up under the pressure of our enforced lockdown. In today's message are several ideas of things you can do if your children are reaching the boredom stage. As we said previously, please don't feel they have to do schoolwork every day if it doesn't feel right - you might prefer some of the other activities we've suggested or just spending time doing family things.

Story of the Day

We hope you enjoyed The Great Dog Bottom Swap read by Mrs Hales and her daughter Lily: tomorrow's story will be another funny one read by Mrs Hales and her other daughter Ella. Have a watch on the homepage of our website.

Rainbows in Windows

You might have seen the phenomenon sweeping the country of children making and putting up rainbows on their windows as a symbol of hope. More information in the Daily Echo here.

Radio Blogging!

Pie Corbett, a well-known children's author and trainer, has set up a daily show with interactive tasks every day at 9.30am - you can join in here: https://radioblogging.net/

Thrive Activities

Mrs Mullin has sent a weekly schedule of short daily activities you can do with your children to help with their social and emotional learning. There are 2 versions, one for YR and KS1 and the other for KS2 both attached to this message.

Surprise Activity Bag

If you're running out of things to do, here's an idea: make a list of fun activities on different bits of paper and put them in a bag. When the children are bored, pull something out and do it. Photo example attached.

Send us Something!

If you have photos or pictures of what you've been doing over this week and want to share it with the school community, please email them to us (support@st-patricks.southampton.sch.uk) or Tweet them (@StPatrickSoton). We'd love to see what you've been up to and we'll add them to the school website.

A big thank you to all of you parents who have made arrangements so that you haven't needed to send your children in. We understand how tricky this has been, but the guidance we have been given is to have the minimum number of people on site as possible. For those who have no alternative, don't worry, we will be here for you.
