At Abbot’s Hall children’s well-being is considered a great importance and we would like to help you support your child with this during any period of isolation. The following are links to support your child’s well-being and mental and physical health. Keeping active, getting outside (this can just be in the garden), being creative (e.g. baking, art), mindfulness time (e.g. mindful colouring, yoga, meditation), can all help support your child and yourselves.
Supermovers have numerous videos that will get your children active. The videos link to the curriculum so will keep the children active whilst still learning. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers
