Hello Year 6 children and parents.
It's Friday of our second week of Homelearning. It's a rather sunny day and I hope you are all keeping up with your Joe Wick's morning exercise. Wow! It's been lovely to see so many of you posting your lovely work and Easter gardens on Seesaw. We are making great progress and thank you to you and your families for your support and patience. There are even more photos on our Week 2 Shout Outs. Keep them coming Year 6!
As we approach Holy Week next week, please remember that "Together in prayer we stand united and we rejoice in knowing that God our Father is with us and by our side." Reflect on our journey at Wintershall, please use:

Remember CAFOD have lots of resources and fun activities too:
During Lent, we remember to share our journey with Jesus. I have uploaded some CAFOD resources to support you.
Create an Easter Garden with your family and reflect on our journey together through the Stations of the Cross at Wintershall.
Think also about why Jesus says that we must become as little children.
Be proud of all that you have achieved and use this time to enjoy being with your families and loved ones.
Remember, If you are worried about our current situation, please speak to an adult and here is a link which you or your families may find useful, https://youngminds.org.uk/blog/what-to-do-if-you-re-anxious-about-coronavirus/
Remember to stay safe and to look after yourself and your families. You are all always in my thoughts and prayers.
