Philosophical Question to finish the day!
Yesterday's Q: What are your hopes for 2021?
Miss Martin: For 2021, I have 2 main hopes. The first being that the vaccine is successful and that I am able to see family members I have been unable to properly socialise with. And the other is to try a new form of fitness; I'm thinking yoga! I've had lots of people recommend it and I think it would be great for mindfulness too :-)
Mrs. Hudson: I think everyone is hoping the vaccine will give us some normality. I certainly hope you can come in to school again soon. On a less serious front, I would like to do more paddle boarding. I have only done it once, did really well, then fell off spectacularly, which my husband filmed! It still makes me laugh though. Also, I would like to see some snow. Wouldn't that be fun!
Today's Question: What is the funniest joke you know? Why is it funny?
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 :-)
