Emotional Support Ideas from Mrs Atkins

Emotional Support

As time passes it is important that we continue to support our children’s emotional wellbeing. So here are a few resources that will help your children to reflect on the current situation and their feelings.

The anxiety thermometer is a great resource for those children who are finding these times difficult and a good way to be able open up an honest and productive discussion.

The All About Me resource can be useful in helping children to think about the positives in their present situation and to reflect on the current times, but also to start thinking about what will happen when they are out of lockdown. Although as adults we can be overwhelmed by the statistics, the politics and social media it is important to encourage children to understand the positive steps we have made and that this present situation will come to an end.

If you are unable to print these documents it could be possible to replicate them by drawing out the thermometer and asking your child to recreate the all about me designs.

Keep safe

Year 6 wb 04.05.20 Home Learning Tasks

Calling all children in Mrs Atkins’ groups – we need your help!

Would all the children who attend Mrs Atkins groups, whilst they are at home, please help to create a new display for when we are back at school?

Could you please draw and cut out of cardboard a butterfly and paint or colour it in any way that you choose?

When we are back at school bring them in so they can be attached to a mobile that will be displayed outside the TLC.

You can make as many as you want – and they can be as big or small as you want!

Here are some my children and I have created. We used lollipop sticks down the middle of our wings but cardboard or a stick will work just as well.

You could even make your own for home. To make the mobile simply sellotape some string to the back of your butterfly (you may need to wrap it around the middle a few times and make a triangle shape on the back so they stay upright) and hang it onto a large stick.

Have fun and stay safe,

Mrs Atkins

Supporting Emotions

During these times of uncertainty it is really important to support and nurture your child’s emotional wellbeing. Each child is different and what works for one may not work for another. But ultimately it is really important we try to support children in finding a way to be peaceful and to be open about any worries and concerns that they may have.

Please click on the link below for few ideas to help your child to find a peace within a moment and to support them with talking about how they feel:

Hello Year 6,

We hope that you are all well and enjoying the beautiful weather that we are having!

By now I am sure that you are breaking your days up by having a look at some of the tasks we set you last week (reattached at the bottom if you need another copy). It has been wonderful to see some of you creating tasks of your own too – you’re very inventive! Feel free to magpie each others’ ideas and ask if you need any help…we are here to support you.

Please make sure you are uploading messages or pictures if you can on to Seesaw – we would love to see what you are all getting up to!

Keep safe and keep smiling,

Year 6 Play Rehearsals

A huge thank you to the Year 6 children, who are working very hard on their production of Primary School Christmas Musical, for their fantastic efforts so far! As their homework, the children are being asked to learn their lines, the lyrics to the songs and any choreography/acting parts that they have been given.

We have talked to the children about costumes and props and would ask that any costumes needed, that are not already in school, are in school by tomorrow (13th December).

Thank you and we hope you enjoy the final performance (Wednesday 18th)!
