Optional activities and resources:
During the summer holiday, teachers will not be checking class emails, setting any learning or holding class Zoom meetings. There are lots of activities and resources below to help keep children busy during this period. Have a fantastic summer holiday, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in September.

- Check on Harold, the happy, healthy giraffe, who the children know from their visits to the Life Education Bus. He will be posting a daily blog: Harold’s Daily Diary, which can be found on this link:
Each day he’ll be giving children positive, fun messages about what he’s doing to stay happy and healthy while he’s off school, separated from his friends. He’ll invite the children to join in with activities he’s doing.
He’ll be giving children ideas for how he – and they – can get a routine going for their day, including the things we all need to do to live a balanced, healthy life. These include:
· Taking regular exercise
· Being creative
· Helping others
· Connecting with others – in ways that are safe
- Lots of companies are providing free resources to help parents out.
- Check out the resources and ideas on our Fun Ideas Poster and the PE Activity Ideas:
