Join Ant and Dec, David Walliams, and Sally from the NSPCC’s Schools Service for a special assembly. Featuring highlights from the hugely popular Speak out Stay safe programme, the assembly will help children understand what’s going on, why they may be feeling anxious or worried, and where to get help if they need it.
We know that many children are struggling with increased anxiety because of the coronavirus pandemic – whether they’re missing friends, stressed about schoolwork or concerned about their family’s safety. And for parents and carers, it can be tough to start a conversation about these worries.
This assembly will help children understand the huge changes in their lives. There will even be a Q&A session with Vicky Ford MP, Minister for Children and Families, featuring questions from children.
Monday 1st June 2020 sees the opening of the Social Security Scotland Best Start Grant School Age payment for new P1 intakes 20/21.

The following resources may be of help to you, during these difficult times:
There is an information book explaining Coronavirus to children.
Also included is an ‘anxiety toolkit’. This includes resources for parents and carers, and children, to help manage anxiety and improve well being during the coronavirus crisis. You will find practical activities such as mindful crafts, breathing exercises and other self-care ideas, informative videos, emotional expression worksheets and helpful strategies to address anxiety.
Finally, I have attached an ‘anxiety social story’ and one that explains Coronavirus to children.
These are the templates for Task 1. WE had difficulties with them so I have made them into pictures for you.
This fantastic resource provides everything you need to research, design and build a canal-themed habitat.

Good Morning P1-3! Here is your Fun Friday Challenge.
