Homework Activity P1-P7

20th Mar 2020

Many nursing home facilities across the country are limiting visitations to help combat the coronavirus pandemic, leaving residents increasingly isolated. Board of Governors and staff thought it would be a good opportunity for our children to reach out to these elderly community members.

We are encouraging your child to brighten their day by choosing to:

  • colour in a picture
  • draw a picture and write a short message
  • write a letter
  • write a poem/short story

We will then collect these letters centrally and distribute them. All of the letters will be kept for a period of time before distribution, to ensure no harmful germs are present.

Make sure you have placed your message in a sealed envelope. If you want to sign your message, please use only your first name and age. 

Please leave the envelope into the designated collection box at the front door of our school, when you come to pick up your home learning pack on your designated day.  

Let's think of the positive encouragement we can bring to others at this difficult time.
