Welcome back to another week of online learning! Can you believe that it is nearly half-term?
Here is a booklet all about Empathy for you and your families to do together.
Mental Health Awareness Week
Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from 18-24 May 2020. The theme is kindness.
Mental health is about our feelings, our thinking, our emotions and our moods and it is important that we look after our mind just as we do after our body. We have prepared some activities for you and your families to engage with. You will receive video links in your daily emails. Your challenge is to do lots of acts of kindness this week, are you up for it?
Here are some other useful links if you are interesting in finding out more:

Last week we introduced the “Unlock Challenge”, a set of challenges tailored to each year group that focuses on achievable curriculum skills to focus on before we return to school. Please note that the Unlock Challenge is NOT IN ADDITION TO the videos. It is intended as an alternative for those who wish to not follow the video curriculum. You can find lots of resources related to these challenges online (e.g https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize).

Summer Virtual School Games
Thanks to the support of Matt Morley at Cambs Cricket we are pleased to have an extra week of activities and challenges for you linked to cricket. This could be your physical and mental health activity for the week to do with family and friends.
Sustrans Outside In
Walking, cycling and scooting are great ways to contribute to keeping us active and healthy in body and mind. During this time where we are mostly required to stay at home, these activities become harder to do so. Sustrans Outside In therefore aims to provide ideas and inspiration to bring health and wellbeing activities into the home.
