Social & Emotional Support
Welcome to this section of the website dedicated towards guidance for children and carers through this period.
Here, you will receive regular messages, updates and resources
Well, after working really hard to get ready for our new term, it looks like we are not going to be all together again for a while. While many of us are feeling sad that we can’t be together we are also feeling hopeful that this will be the last time we will have to be in lockdown as the new vaccine is on the way.
However, we have done a lockdown before and we can do it again! Here at Nafferton we know how to be resilient and if we are struggling we know we can ask for help. We also have lots of strategies we can use to manage our feelings. You can look back through our Health and Wellbeing section on the website if you need any ideas or reminders.
Mrs Rothwell and I have made a Colour Monster video so you can watch the book being read and remember the story. You might like to make your own colour monsters or find different coloured objects at home to represent your different feelings. Remember we all have different feelings at different times and there are lots of things we can do to manage our feelings. I like to remember my breathing, do some yoga, go for a walk, bike ride or run to help me feel happy and calm. I wonder if there is anything you might find particularly helpful?
There is a Yoga Quest from Cosmic Kids which looks like a great adventure to go on. You can sign up for emails at the link below and you will be sent a free map. Jamie takes you on 20 different adventure across 5 different lands and you will get a certificate when you complete it. https://www.cosmickids.com/yogaquest/
Parents might be interested to do the new 30 days of Yoga from Adriene which is called Breath. It started on January the second but you can start it at any time. https://yogawithadriene.com/breath-a-30-day-yoga-journey/
If you are working from home, remember to try your best because when you try your best it is good enough! Try to keep active and make sure you eat your fruit and veg!
Take Care, stay safe and we will see you all very soon.

Below, there is the spellings and guidance for Home Learning document that is also available in the Home Learning: Downloads (Vids and Documents) folder.
Use this guidance to set out a structure not too dissimilar from school-life that the children will appreciate. Remember, little and often and gauge it to your individual child's needs.
