Wellness Week!

Last week of school-Miss Doyle JI 22nd-25th June

Hello everyone,

It is hard to believe we have reached the last week of this very different and unexpected school year. Well done to all of the boys and girls for their hard work and kindness throughout the year-seeing your big smiles every day from September to March and seeing photos of your learning since March made me a proud and happy teacher. I have loved being your teacher and look forward to seeing all the great things you do in the future. Well done all you superstars!

To all the parents, thank you for your support and dedication since the school closed. I know it has been very difficult for you all but I appreciate your help in continuing the children’s learning and enjoyed speaking to many of you via email.

I wish you all a happy and safe Summer,

Miss Doyle

Below I have listed some activities for you to choose from this week. We are taking a well-earned break from academics and having some fun. As always if you want to send me photos or have any questions or concerns my email address is katiedoylestjosephs@gmail.com.

Wellness Week:

  • Happiness jar-Take a container or jar and decorate it. Put a container of small objects beside the jar. Throughout the week when something makes you feel happy put an object into the jar. At the end of the week look at how full your jar is and talk about the things that made you feel happy. You could also use small pieces of paper or post-its and draw or write about the things that make you happy.

 

  • Random acts of kindness-do something kind for someone else everyday. Colour one flower for each act of kindness.
