“We went to the restaurant Wagamama. We made fruit drinks, we smelt and tasted their ingredients, we made our own food prep bag and weighed it. The chef made us a bowl of stir-fry. It was YUMMY, TASTY, NICE, DELICIOUS and FANTASTIC! Finally, they gave us a goody bag for us to take home” To all our friends who have chicken pox “ get better soon, we miss you”

This week it has been children's mental health week.  We have focussed on feelings- happy, sad, lonely, worried etc.. Children have drawn their worries then thought of strategies to help cope with their worries eg. taking deep breaths, telling someone, telling the worry monster, want a hug, having some water, smelling flowers...... We have talked about the importance of sleeping and how it is good to have a good bedtime routine. The children thought of a ' recipe for a goodnight sleep'.  We ended the week on a fun memory game. Where children in pairs had to take it in turns to go and look at the picture away from their partner (below) choose one thing that was on the picture and then come back to their partner and tell their partner what they had to draw. The partner would then draw what their partner said. Then you swap over and repeat the same process.  This was a challenging game- great for communication, language, teamwork, drawing, memory and trust.  Have a go with your child!
