A Letter from Miss Manios
To my lovely Year 5s,
I hope that you are all keeping well and that everyone in your home is healthy and still smiling. I am still fit and healthy and doing my best to find things to smile at.
This first week off of school has been a little bit of a strange one I have to admit. It almost feels like a half-term break that has come early but at the same time I feel like I’m skipping school and don’t want Mrs Craft to know (shhh, don’t tell her – hehe).
So far this week, I have been checking up on the homework I assigned, and it’s nice to see that some people have already started it and are sending me some lovely messages through Purple Mash. Thanks for these messages, I really appreciate hearing from you since I can’t get to speak to you daily. If you haven’t started the work on Purple Mash yet, that’s ok too. I just hope that you aren’t filling your time with TV and video games and that you are keeping yourselves occupied by learning something new, playing outdoor games or cards with your family.
Remember to keep active, play in the garden, go for a walk with your family and get some sun. So far I have spent lots of time in my garden, clearing away dead plants and weeds, turning the soil and reading a good book under the apple tree in my yard. In the evenings, I have been going for walks and doing my best to avoid plonking down in front of the TV for hours on end. At the end of the day, it’s all about keeping things in balance and we must remember that. Now that you are spending more time at home, do your best to help pitch in with chores and odd jobs around the house. This is a good way to keep everyone happy and it will allow your parents to spend more quality time with you.
Please look after yourselves and your loved ones. I am looking forward to hearing about some of the exciting things you have been up to when you get a chance. We are all in this together so we must continue to encourage and support each other in any way we can.
