Day 31 – Tuesday and it’s another beautiful day.
You may be pleased to hear that there is now a Work Pack 5 available from the school office; something to help keep the children learning, before they get a break next week. The grids are also available on the school website.
I’m going to give you a few ideas for outdoor activities that you might like to get involved with this week if you have a safe outdoor space to use.
Paint with water on the path or fence - You don’t always need paint to create a masterpiece – a dry day is the perfect time to get creative using nothing but a paint brush and a tub of water. Try different techniques – splashing, flicking, smoothly painting…

I’ll end today with a quote that I found helpful:
“Every situation in life is temporary. So, when life is good, make sure you enjoy and receive it fully. And when life is not so good, remember that it will not last forever and better days are on the way.” – Jenni Young
I hope that you can enjoy the sunshine at some point today, take care and keep in touch.
