It’s our day off today and I almost forgot our Friday quote! Better late than never! In these strange times, we can feel many different emotions, some of them unsettling and hard to cope with … but we can still feel thankful and grateful at the same time. Look out for our family task next week that asks you to focus on what we’re thankful for.
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week with the theme of kindness as a focus this year. Never underestimate the power of the simplest act of kindness. Even though we are seeing very few people just now, make sure you pass on a random act of kindness to those closest to you today. What will you choose to do?
Tuesday the 12th marked the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale and was also International Nurses Day. Today’s Inspirational quote comes from Florence Nightingale who is famous for her work during the Crimean War, for raising standards for nursing, changing the way nurses were perceived and in her help educating those in the profession. A truly inspirational lady, both then and now.
A beautiful sunny day always makes things easier! Happy weekend and stay positive!
Today, just a little reminder that in these strange days, it’s ok to be very productive one day and feel less motivated another day. Seize the good days and take things gently on the more challenging days. This is new to us all.
It’s been a week of learning new things for our pupils, our families and teachers, mostly involving how to navigate Glow! Sometimes it’s worked…sometimes not. This can cause frustration when you are ready to work, yet it doesn’t allow you. Today’s quote is for anybody, young or old, who has found things tricky this week.
Today’s quote comes from the truly inspirational Tom Moore!
The 99-year-old war veteran has raised a staggering £15m (and counting) for NHS staff after reaching his goal of walking 100 laps of his garden.
Capt Tom Moore had hoped to achieve the target in time for his 100th birthday on 30 April, and walked the last 25 lengths on live TV on Thursday morning, with a guard of honour from the 1st Battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment by his side.
We can learn so much from looking at what Tom has achieved. Set a goal….work hard until it’s reached….face and overcome setbacks along the way….never give up and believe you can do whatever you set your heart on.
We hope you have been enjoying the lovely Spring weather this week and that this post finds you well and looking forward to your Easter weekend. Today’s quote comes from the great Albus Dumbledore … always try to look for the positives even when at first, they seem difficult to see. I may just have to look out these books again during our lockdown!
That’s been a fast week! What have you been up to? In my house, we’ve been baking/cooking and watching Masterchef, playing Cluedo, getting our daily exercise outside and doing lots of reading. I am also trying to get my MRI hat finished. We hope whatever you are doing, you are having fun! If you are quick, you might be able to get out to play in the snow this morning! Today’s quote is especially for Mrs A. Henderson!
Well, that’s this term coming to an end. It’s certainly not how we pictured these last few weeks would go but we are sure you’ve done wonderfully at home, working on your packs and Blog ideas plus other activities you’ll have thought of yourselves. As we enter into our holidays, we ask that you and your families have a well deserved break and just spend time together, doing what you love. It’s hard when we are limited in what we can do but be inventive and think of ways you can do what makes you happy! Also, try to find ways you can keep in touch with friends…either using technology or a more traditional way! Whatever happens, know this – Mrs Henderson and I are thinking of you all and wishing you a happy and healthy holiday. Mrs Smith 🤗
