Dear Year 4

Welcome to the new week.

Mental Health Awareness Week

Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from 18-24 May 2020. The theme is kindness.

Mental health is about our feelings, our thinking, our emotions and our moods and it is important that we look after our mind just as we do after our body. We have prepared some activities for you and your families to engage with. You will receive video links in your daily emails. Your challenge is to do lots of acts of kindness this week, are you up for it?

Sustrans Outside In

Walking, cycling and scooting are great ways to contribute to keeping us active and healthy in body and mind. During this time where we are mostly required to stay at home, these activities become harder to do so. Sustrans Outside In therefore aims to provide ideas and inspiration to bring health and wellbeing activities into the home.

Cricket Week Challenges

We are pleased to have an extra week of challenges linked to cricket activities from the South Cambs School Partnership. We hope you and your children enjoy taking part in these outdoor activities Cricket week challenges
