Pastoral resources (updated weekly)

  • 2nd April- With Easter coming up we often have trips out as families. That’s not possible at the moment so why not watch live cams at the zoos. Here are a couple to try:

  • 1st April- Are you feeling like you are not in control of what’s going on? Setting yourself a goal and achieving it will give you a sense of control and purpose – think about things you want or need to do that you can still do at home. It could be watching a film, reading a book or learning a new skill. 

  • 31st March: Taking sometime today, think about 10 things that you are grateful for. This is a very uncertain time we are all in but focusing on the positives around us helps us to become more positive. When we choose to think about the good we are giving less power to the negative thoughts. Maybe try it as a family and have them written down where everyone can see them. Today I am grateful for the sunshine!- Mrs Gamon.

  • 30th March:  Brain Break breathing:  Lie back gently on the floor with your feet out in front of you. Place your hands on your stomach. Breathe in through your nose and feel your hands rise up. As you slowly exhale, feel your hands go back down. Pretend that your stomach is waves in the ocean and your hands are a sailboat. Each time you breath in the sailboat goes up on the waves and each time you breath out the sailboat goes down on the waves. Repeat.

  • 27th March: Over the next few weeks, every time you want to do something but you can’t, write it down and put it in a jar or pot. Once we are allowed out again you can go through one by one and really appreciate everything we used to take for granted, and of course do these things!

  • 26th March: Are you feeling cooped up? Take a look at this website for some virtual tours of museums:  https://www.boredpanda.com/famous-museums-offering-virtual-tours/
