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

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

Hello Everyone

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:-

  1. We can explain the tasks that you have to do, if you are not quite sure.
  2.  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.
  3.  We will be able to comment on the chosen piece of special work, which you send.

What we can’t do:-

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Mrs Wood

Think about how you could present your work in a unique way.

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
