At some point today please take a photo of your child doing something they have 'typically' done in lockdown - something they have done most days, part of your lockdown routine. You may include other members of your family in the photo. We would like to make a collage of photos of all our children, and staff, in lockdown as part of a display in school and a historical archive.
Please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with your child's name and class.
To understand the '2m rule' and 'social distancing' related to the Coronavirus we are are going to do lots of work around 2m today.

We want the children to understand the historical importance of Coronavirus. We will be putting key historical events since 1945 to now in a timeline with the children at school. Discussing why they were key events and what difference they made to the world.
We will then get the children to create a timeline of their life adding key events for themselves in. You could do this as a family - creating a family timeline or individual timelines noting births of brothers and sisters, significant birthdays, holidays you have been on, starting school, weddings, getting animals etc. You could create a timeline of key events for your family using photos, getting children to draw pictures or writing a few sentences.
As we start to create a historical artefact or keepsakes for the the future it will be good for the children to make a note of some autobiographical details about themselves during this time. Children in the future can look at these and realise that the children who are experiencing and living through this time are just normal, everyday children like themselves.
Here are some ideas for autobiographical sheets - you can either use these or use ideas from a selection of them to create your own. Remember to include the date on them that children wrote them - and possibly the date that children stopped going to school - Monday 23rd March.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
