20 good learning apps https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/mar/29/learning-apps-for-stir-crazy-kids-while-schools-are-closed

Connect

Connect with family and friends

* There are lots of messaging and video messaging apps (Please ask for parental permission) so that you can keep in touch with your friends and family.  Why not make up a quiz you can do or create your own scavenger hunt for family members to do together?

* Why not write a letter or email to someone you haven't seen for a while.  You could tell them what you have learnt about or new things you might have tried during lock down.  You could share a picture or a song.

Connect with nature

* Take a walk with your family - find new hidden places in your local area.  

* Do a nature scavenger hunt - why not try some of the ones below or you could make up your own!

* Be mindful.  Sit out in your garden or by your window and just watch and listen.  What can you hear? What can you see?

Take notice

 

Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. It can help relieve stress, improve sleep, calm us down and encourage us to take notice of our thoughts and feelings, as well as the world around us.

 

Some quick, useful mindfulness techniques:

  • Breathe in & out whilst tracing your fingers
  • Take deep breaths whilst counting to 10
  • Imagine putting negatives thoughts inside a bubble and watching it blow away
  • Blow bubbles 'slow-mo' style, with a big deep breath in through the nose to fill the bubble, then breath out through the mouth as slow as possible
  • Squeeze then let go, tensing different parts of your body for 5 seconds at a time

 

GoNoodle it's free to create an account and they've got lots of great mindfulness videos! https://www.gonoodle.com/
