As this week is Children’s Mental Health Week, I’d like to start the week by encouraging you all to have some screen down-time! 

In class we have started to learn how to play chess.  Do you have any board games from Christmas you haven’t got out of the box yet? What about a jigsaw puzzle or craft set?

Take some time this afternoon to do something that you will enjoy that doesn’t involve technology.  Maybe you could go for your daily exercise and spend some time looking out for the first signs of spring beginning to appear.

If you’d like to, you could send a photo of what you’ve been up to.
