I know that things have been really difficult for schools and teachers recently as you try to navigate your role of keeping children across the UK learning, by supporting their parents with home schooling. I also know, as my role as BBC Children in Need’s Schools Ambassador, that children are finding things really difficult. A lot of children are missing out on the shared experience that schools bring and also really missing the social side of seeing their friends.
So I wanted to get in touch to say a massive thank-you for all the amazing work you’re doing to keep children across the UK entertained, happy and learning. You’re doing an incredible job.
Whether you’re still in school or staying at home, I hope you’ve been taking advantage of the fantastic resources from Twinkl’s Home Learning Hub and BBC Bitesize. They’re perfect for keeping children learning with loads of resources and activities.
I hope you and all the students you support have been joining me for my morning PE lessons to get active, feel energised and start the day off positively.
We know that some children may be struggling with their mental health/wellbeing being impacted by feelings of unease and anxiety. We also know that it’s an incredibly stressful time for parents, who are trying to support their children through this. So I wanted to share Dr Radha’s really useful, top tips to help parents and children cope better in these strange and uncertain times.
I’m really looking forward to the autumn, when I really hope to be able to see you as part of BBC Children in Need’s Appeal Week!
Thanks again for everything you’re doing – you’re all amazing!
Lots of Love
