WELL-BEING WEEK

At STOKENCHURCH we recognise that everyone’s wellbeing and mental health continue to be under pressure, so this week is our well-being week in the lead up to half term. You will find remote learning activities (hopefully) a little more relaxing, mindful and calming – hugely important for mums and dads as well as children. 

We look forward to seeing you each morning at 9am for our daily zoom lesson. Below is an outline of our planned activities for the week. We really hope you enjoy them. (Please see the timetable for suggested timings).

 

 

Friday 12th February - Join us at 9am for our Fun Friday Fancy Dress Zoom! Wear a dressing up costume of your choice or your favourite top and don't forget to bring along the hat you made earlier in the week. We're looking forward to an hour of songs, games and jokes with you all. We are also hoping to do some craft and create a 'hearts' card so please bring along coloured paper or card, scissors, glue and felt tips if you have them.

 

  • Choose some activities from our Well-Being ideas chart before joining us at 1pm for our 'Celebration Assembly Zoom'. Bring along a favourite picture, model or activity which you have enjoyed during the week.
