In partnership with the University of Reading, Future Learn is offering a free e-learning called “Covid-19: Helping Young People Manage Low Mood & Depression”
On this course, young people, parents, carers, teachers, and other professionals can learn helpful, practical techniques to cope with low mood and depression during the lockdown period and beyond. You’ll examine how to help young people structure their day and improve sleep and diet and you will cover the following topics:
- Practical advice on structuring the day and promoting healthy habits
- Helpful family communication to keep conflict to a minimum
- The importance of modelling and self-care
- Tips on managing your thoughts and your feelings
- Using this time as an opportunity for developing resilience
The course will be available online here for two weeks from 4th May 2020 and takes just two hours to complete.
Hello Wellington. We are missing you all and can’t wait to see you again. Until then, stay safe, stay positive and look after each other. Here is a little message from us https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=6&v=Gw5A8aKZ1b8&feature=emb_logo
Message from Mrs Wood
I hope you are all well and staying safe.
From today, you and your families will have the opportunity to contact your teachers directly by e-mail, if you need guidance about the work.
What we can do:-
- We can explain the tasks that you have to do, if you are not quite sure.
- You can send your teacher a piece of work, which you are particularly proud of. Choose one. Explain why you are particularly pleased with this piece of work.
- We will be able to comment on the chosen piece of special work, which you send.
What we can’t do:-
- We won’t be able to mark your work. You can use the answer sheets from the website, in order to mark your own work.
- We won’t be able to have a general e-mail “chat” with you – we will need to concentrate on queries about the work.
Your teachers will check their e-mails once a day, so you can expect a reply within 24 hours, at the very latest.
We are missing you all very much. The school building seems very strange without you! Hopefully, it won’t be too long before we can meet with you all again.
With very best wishes to all of you.
Work for week beginning: Monday 27th April 2020
Mrs Cordner, Mrs Thornton, Joanne, Sam and Michelle would like to say a big THANK YOU for the lovely videos, photos and messages we’ve received to our Nursery inbox. Keep up the great work!

Egg Decoration Challenge – With Easter Sunday coming up, why not have a go at this creative challenge? Eggs in chocolate form are of course synonymous with the occasion, but we challenge you to hard boil an actual egg (or two) before letting your creative juices flow. You can come up with any design that you like and no means of decoration are off limits. You can use pen, paint, glitter, paper and any other possible options, as you get creative. If you look back through our news feed you can check out some of the fantastic egg designs from last year. We would love to see your efforts, which you can post on our Twitter @WellingtonPSBD2. #staysafe #getcreative

**Nursery Challenge** – This week’s sound is ‘e’ – can you practise writing the letter e. Practise making the ‘e’ sound, look for things which begin with ‘e’, and look for the letter ‘e’ on signs, in books etc…and everywhere you can think of. Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nursery have been learning numbers up to 10, this weeks number is 5. Maybe you could go on a number hunt to find the number 5 or any other numbers! Grown-ups it’s completely up to you how you do this. Here are a few ideas to get you started:-
You could hide numbers around the house for your child to find. They might even look for them in order. Forwards to ten then backwards from ten etc.
You could look in your cupboards. Do you see any numbers on food packaging? What do the numbers mean? Can you count out that number of items?
Your child could take a pen and paper around the house with them to copy any numbers they find.
Or maybe you could take a walk around your local area to look for house numbers, number plates on cars etc.
Follow the story of 5 on Topmarks https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx?q=number%20stories
Don’t forget to share your learning with us.
Have fun, Mrs Thornton & Mrs Cordner-Hussain 🙂 #nurserychallenge
