ELSA Resources

 We know the world seems a little upside-down at the moment. This may make some children feel very worried and confused. We have added some resources and activities to hopefully help during this time. 

These will be updated regularly so keep checking back to see whats new!

 

          Ms. Bolton and Miss. Norris miss seeing all the children at school every day! We hope these can help you and we look forward to seeing you all soon!

As it will be the final week of term, there will be a focus on TRANSITION and we have invited year group teachers to come and say hello and talk to the children and answer any questions they may have. Please note this will be the final week of Zoom sessions.
 
 Here are this week's Zoom Sessions for each year group:
MONDAY 13th July 11:30am - YEAR 3 (with year 4 staff)
TUESDAY 14th July 11:30am - YEAR 4 (with year 5 staff)
WEDNESDAY 15th July 11:30am - YEAR 5 (with year 6 staff)
THURSDAY 16th July 11:30am - YEAR 6
FRIDAY 17th July 1:00pm - ELSA FRIDAY SPECIAL (ALL YEARS GROUPS)
 
 Our Friday Special is hosted by our school ELSA's and will be a time for a general chat and catch up for all year groups. ELSA's will have some games prepared and be open to discussing any topic the children wish: from Minecraft 🤖 to mental health 🧠. Note: this week will be at the later time of 1 pm. You will receive a reminder text. 
 
 Please note: due to the change in Zoom call timetables, the Zoom ID will be different to previous weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for the new call ID by text, or email Miss Norris to get this info! (andrea.norris@shadsworthjunior.blackburn.sch.uk)
 
Zoom is a safe and secure conference call software that is free to download. You can make an account here: https://zoom.us/freesignup/
Shortly before the Zoom call you will receive a text with entry ID and a password, this is how we make sure these calls are safe for your children. Please set the account name to your child/childrens name so that the staff are able to identify you. If you need help joining the meeting, please see https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-Meeting

 

Short Virtual Tour of School

As advertised on other areas of the website, Mrs. Hetherington and Mr. Mills have created a short virtual tour of the school showing you all the measures put in place to keep children safe. It's a good idea to watch this video together and discuss the measures put in place to help children to know what to expect and the reasons why they are there when returning to school.

Don't forget to do your daily check-in!

Why not use this every morning to get your mind ready for the day? 

Sometimes we might feel like we just dont want to do anything, but to help us keep busy and motivated, try talking about these questions with an adult.

 

My goal for today:

  • what is your goal today? perhaps its to try really hard on your schoolwork, to try something new, to get creative or to get along with your siblings ALL day! Its good to set a goal so our brain knows what we need to get done today. 

 

To keep myself on task I will:

  • Try to think of something that you would like, a treat or some time to play on your games console, to play outside or try a new board game or maybe a sweet treat. Having something to look forward to after a job will keep your brain focussed on finishing your job because you know something you like will happen afterwards!

 

Is there anything you want me to know?:

  • Use this question to talk about your thoughts, perhaps you're missing your friends at school, you're excited to try a new game or maybe talk about your worries.

 

How are you feeling today?:

  • Use the emotions underneath to describe how you are feeling today. Its always good to know how you are feeling so what we can be mindful about how that might make us talk and act to others.
