Writing: Try and complete one piece of writing a week. Here are some ideas that you could write about:

  • Write out the instructions on how to wash your hands.
  • Write a letter of thanks to the local supermarket workers/nurses/doctors/ truck drivers and everyone who is helping us at this time.
  • Keep a diary about this time.
  • Write a letter to a family member or friend who you can’t see at the moment.
  • Be creative and write your own narrative story (think of your introduction – introduce character and setting, build up to the problem, Problem – what happens to your character and resolution – how is the problem solved.)
    Reading: Try and read a little every day. There are lots of books online. The boys should pick something that they enjoy and spend a few minutes reading each day.

Please send a photo of your work and send them to me as I would love to see what you have done.
