Let's start the day with a prayer.
The Lord's prayer, or Our Father
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Read below the two therapeutic stories to help explore strong emotions relating to the coronavirus and feelings related to a return to school during the pandemic. If your child is not returning to school, you can just read The Little Elf who missed his Birthday Party.
Parents: Please complete this activity with children to help in guiding the conversation. Follow the guidance for adults about this story in the PDF file.
Therapeutic stories are designed to help children explore and understand feelings. Read the stories below and focus on understanding the emotional connection with the story and characters.
Once you have read and had a discussion about the stories complete some pages in your little book of changes. You can choose which pages you would like to complete.
I have been getting the class ready for when some children return on Monday and thought I would share a picture of what the class room looks like now. We won't have everyone in the class when we return so there are less desks. Each of you will have your own desk and on your desk you will have;
- Your tray containing all of your school books.
- A pot of stationary (no need to be squabbling over rubbers now!)
- A box of tissues.
When we are in school we will talk more about the changes but I know we are going to have a great time and I can't wait to see your smiling faces.
