A message to 5/6JF


Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing amazing as we enter the second week away from school. As you know, this is a time where it is incredibly easy for us all to get bored. That is why it is important to keep yourself busy - not only with school work but with other things to keep us occupied and happy, such as exercise and reading (I've read 3 books so far - I challenge anyone to beat me!). This is why I'm setting you a challenge: to learn a unique skill to show me and your friends when we're back at school. This could be anything, from learning a song on an instrument to learning an impressive gymnastic skill (nothing too terrifying please!) 


I'm currently learning (and struggling) to learn how to juggle... I will let you all know how that goes...


Please keep yourselves healthy and happy and I am excited to see what skills you teach yourself...

PS: A few suggestions of strange skills to learn

- Learn to juggle

- Learn an obscure card game or how to shuffle cards like a pro

- A football trick

- Learn to moonwalk (I will be particularly impressed with this one)

- Whistle with your fingers

- Solve a Rubiks cube quickly

- Learn an instrument (recorder and harmonica can be a good start)  

If your child is poorly and they are going to be off school, you must let us know so we can provide you with the correct advice should they have possible COVID-19 symptoms. You can ring 2502207 or email and someone will be in touch.
