FLO Flyer - Easter 1
Welcome to the first flyer of the Easter holidays.
I hope that everyone is managing to relax and chill out whilst still keeping yourselves busy. I washed my car for the first time in years this weekend!
The pressure is certainly off, with home schooling for now. It is looking likely that we will continue to be in the same situation as we go into Term 5 next week. There will be new home learning links and packs for everyone when term begins.
To keep our minds healthy and busy, it is suggested that we try and learn a new skill or hobby. Obviously, we are restricted to what we can do in our own homes but here are a few suggestions; Try learning some words in a new language (Google translate), make a minibeast log (record or draw what creatures you see on your walks or in the garden), try a new recipe or bake some bread (if you can get the flour), or have a go at a new craft (painting, drawing, collage, sewing).
You could use your phones and tablets to make a short film, learn how to mend a bicycle puncture, sew on a button, write a book or learn a dance routine. Whatever interests you, I am sure you can find a tutorial on YouTube.
I promised to tell you more about the Collaboreggs 2020 project https://eastcliffcreatives.com/collaboreggs2020/
Step #1 – Paint, draw, build, photograph, craft, create or decorate an egg at home for Easter. Take a picture of it
Step #2 – Post the picture of your wonderful creation on Instagram using the hashtag #collaboreggs2020 and #eastcliffcreatives and tell us where in the world you are. Or if you don’t have Instagram send your entry via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post it for you
Step #3 – Share your posts and those of other people’s eggs-traordinary creations. Let’s spread some joy, fun and creativity across the world
There is a lot more information on the website and some amazing pictures of what people have done so far. It would be awesome to see some entries from Castle Hill families.
I was shocked to hear at the weekend that the government is considering banning us from going out for daily exercise because so many people are not keeping themselves and others safe. If this happens, I may be even more grateful for PE with Joe. He is still doing a daily workout on YouTube throughout the Easter holidays for anyone that needs an energising boost to start the day. We must keep two metres apart from anyone that we don’t live with, and not be in gatherings of more than two people.
We can do this and remember it will save lives.
I am also grateful for hand cream and anyone who has ever given me any! It is still so important that we keep washing our hands thoroughly to kill any of the virus that may have got onto our hands before we transmit it to our faces.
If you are running out of books and stories to read with your children, look out for an exciting announcement from Mr Talbot.
Remember that although it is the holidays, we are still here to support you.
