Wellbeing Wednesday

Reception, on Wellbeing Wednesday you can take a break from your computers and devices and take part in lots of fun, different activities outside or around your home.

This afternoon, make a Fab File to collect work and pictures that you are proud of, certificates that celebrate your achievements and cards from people that you care about. 

You could also go for a walk in your local area. What did you notice on your walk? Did you see any animals or notice any changes to any of the trees or wildlife?

You may want to help your family with any chores around the house. You could tidy your room or help with folding clothes away or washing up.

Why not help your family to prepare and make a healthy dinner or bake something delicious in the afternoon! 

We hope you enjoy taking part in Wellbeing Wednesday. 

Please let us know what you got up to and share your learning with us!
