On to day 2! How did you first day of Remote Learning go? Did you learn anything new about William Shakespeare? Were you able to have give any of the science experiments a test run? laugh Today, our live Zoom sessions start! We're really excited to be able to start off our days with you from now on (albeit virtually!).

Philosophical Question to finish the day! 

Yesterday's Q: What was a positive, a minus and an interesting fact about 2020? 

Miss Martin: A negative of 2020 is.. well.. COVID! I think that's enough said on the negatives! A positive of 2021 is that, with all the madness in the world, it's made me pay more attention on what I'm thankful for and to be grateful for the wonderful things I do have in my life... to slow down more. An interesting fact.. hmm! Did you know that the word 'zoom' was the 4th most googled word this year? Actually, makes a lot of sense when you think about it! 

Miss Chapman: Like Miss Martin, a negative is definitely ... COVID. However, it also had a positive as it made me appreciate the outdoors a lot more and explore areas of where I live which I never had before. Nature is beautiful. A fact... did you know that the unicorn is Scotland's National animal?! It symbolises purity, innocence and power in Celtic mythology.

Mrs. Hudson: I have thoroughly enjoyed special moments with people more this year and my garden. Also I have really appreciated teaching in front of actual children. The negative aspect has been not being able to chat and hug people. An interesting fact is that Covid-19 stands for Coronavirus Disease 2019.



Today's Question: What are your hopes for 2021? 

Spend some time during dinner or at some point in the evening, discussing this with the other people at home! We're sure there will be some interesting responses :-)
