Good Morning, everyone!
This week, we have been learning about the 5 ways to Wellbeing.
Today, we are focussing on the 5th step to Wellbeing:
It is very important for our wellbeing to have connections with other people. Feeling close to and valued by other people is important for everyone. As we can’t see many of our friends and family at the moment, it is extra important for all of our wellbeing to stay connected.
All of the school staff are staying in touch with each other using phone calls, texts, emails and video calling. We share news, funny photos, chat about our feelings and celebrate any birthdays.
All of the school staff are staying in touch with you and your families using the blogs as well as e-mails and phone calls.
I usually ring my mum once every day and visit her as often as I can. Now, I am video calling her at least twice a day. This way, we can see each other safely and chat about our days.
Mrs Knowler and her family are even managing to have parties during their video calls!
Although you will not see your teachers and friends every day while we’re not at school, keeping in contact with them is important. Click on the link to your class blog to send a message to your teachers and classmates.
There are so many different ways to stay in touch online and this can be very positive for our wellbeing. However, it is so important to stay safe and also to make sure that your online behaviour doesn’t negatively affect someone else’s wellbeing. Click on the link for more guidance: Keeping safe online
If anything is worrying you at this time, you can also post a comment in the school’s worry box. Your name won’t be posted but this helps the school staff to give you advice and support. This advice might also helps other children too. Click on the link: Worry box
Don’t forget connecting with your family as well. Try to spend real time with the people that you live with. You can watch a movie, go for a walk, play a game or just have a chat. If you can’t see your other family members at the moment, try video calling them or sending them a home-made card. These simple activities are enjoyable for everyone and will make you feel more connected.
