YEAR 3 AND YEAR 4 Monday 29th June 2020
Hello LKS2 parents and carers,
I was a bit stuck for inspiration for this week’s newsletter, the weather didn’t help as the grey clouds dampened my spirits. Mr Cross was looking for ideas for me when he came across this poem written by a 10 year old girl to earn a Blue Peter badge:
In light of the troubles we have today,
there’s just a few things I’d like to say.
Although the days of this feel long,
together as a country, we stand strong.
Share your kindness and your love.
It’s no time to be mean, push and shove.
Hold on to your loved ones, hold them tight.
Listen to the rules and do what’s right.
Spend the precious times with your family.
Read, do puzzles, play games and be silly.
Watch Blue Peter, snuggle up on the sofa,
as mummy no longer needs to be chauffeur.
Take time to enjoy all the little things,
the small things and the pleasure it brings.
But most importantly of all,
Stay safe, be brave, we shall not fall!
If you would like to earn a Blue Peter badge, send your inspirational poems to BLUE PETER, MEDIACITYUK, SALFORD, M50 2BH. Or why not email them to your teacher and we can share them on our weekly newsletter.
