Thinking of Others
Thinking about, and helping, other people is a great way of making everyone feel better.
Here are a few ideas of fun things to do that can brighten your day
and make someone smile.
Can your child make a difference in our local community?
At this difficult time we are keen to find ways to support and build links with our local community. There are many elderly residents who are currently isolated and unable to see family and friends, particularly grandchildren. We have teamed up Reverend Jeremy and volunteers at St Luke’s church to enable the pupils at Grayshott Primary to send letters, cards, drawings or poems to these people, via the school. The church have identified some residents in our community who would love to hear from your child – they are: Wendy, Ruby, Mary, Mavis, Shirley, Derek, Mrs Crane, Bill, Peter, Mary, Jean, Henry, Michael and Yvonne. If your child would like to correspond with one (or more) of them please either email the school, drop it into the office whilst doing your daily exercise or post it to the school and we will forward them on. If you can’t decide who to send to, please just send something in and we will forward on. These will then be taken to church volunteers who will deliver them to the local residents.
The recipients will be given the opportunity to write back, again via the church and school. If your child would like to receive a letter in return, please ask them to include their first name only – no surnames or addresses please. We hope that this scheme will spread love and joy, and encourage respect and communication between different generations in our community.
The children at school made a rainbow to say thank you to the NHS and our key workers. Have you made one yet?
Teddy Bear Hunt!
Inspired by Michael Rosen's 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt', people are putting teddy bears (or other cuddly toys) in their window. Can you put a teddy in your window to cheer up anyone who walks past?
See how many you can spot when you go out for your daily exercise.
