Connect with others
You can make the most of the Internet and phone by keeping in touch with each other via Zoom or FaceTime. And don’t forget the joy of sending and receiving a handwritten letter.
Now is a great time to spend time together playing games. You could play a family favourite or you might like to try learning or playing a new game.
Put on your favourite music nice loud and have a good old dance about the house. Why not get your family to join in too! You'll feel great afterwards.
Pupils and teachers will wear an item of clothing inside out as a reminder that how someone else looks on the outside doesn’t necessarily reflect how they are truly feeling on the inside
We would love to see a picture of you (and maybe your family too!) wearing your clothes inside out. You can email your teacher with any photos that you take.
Learn something new
It's great for us to try something different and share your experience with someone else. Try one of the activities below to help you relax and connect today.
Why not try cooking something that you can share - don't forget it uses maths, communication and science skills. Why not try making some treats together?

Like cooking, getting into the garden is a great way to chill out. February may not be the best time to start a veg patch, but there are seeds you can grow indoors at any time of the year, like cress. You could maybe plant something that you can watch growing.
Reading is a fantastic way to relax, there's nothing like getting lost in a book and forgetting what's going on in the world!
Why not snuggle up and share a story with the adult in your house.
