Monday 1st February

Children's Mental Health Week

Good Morning, Year 3!

Please look at the above picture and remind yourself of a few of the things that might make you feel good during lockdown from eating healthy foods, sleeping and washing regularly to walks in the fresh air.  You can even feel good by knowing you are doing your part for the whole of Tonbridge by not meeting with your friends face to face.  So express yourself by singing, building with Lego, talking with a grandparent, playing in the garden or just relaxing reading a book, whatever makes you feel good.  You are all unique and we want you all to be happy in your own way!

Today, the piece of learning we would like you to upload to Tapestry is: your lever investigation in Science/DT.
