Day 2 of Lockdown

Today was the second day of lockdown and I'm still feeling fine! I think the good weather definitely helps. We spent a lot of time in the garden again but also managed a trip to the playing fields round the corner so the boys could play football without worrying about breaking the greenhouse!

Riyad wanted to colour in his map so he did that first thing. Then I read some read alouds and we managed to finish 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks'! It was a brillant book and I enjoyed it just as much as the children. Then we did PE with Joe Wickes. I did not join in today as I was busy putting the final touches to a video I am creating in collaboration with the NHS to give guidance about coronavirus in seven minority languages. There is a real worry that ethnic minority groups and at greater risk of contracting the virus because they don't have access to the health warnings and guidance.

The children help me make jam tarts for morning snack. Asiya was not happy because Delal wouldn't let her hold the jam jar.

After lunch we carried on learning about the Battle of Hastings and the Bayeux tapestry. 

After lunch, we took a short walk to a small playing field round the corner from our house so the boys could play football without breaking another window (Riyad did this quite recently)! We also took the tennis rackets and picnic blanket and spent almost two hours playing together in the sunshine. It was a wonderful day.

In the evening I was finally able to upload a new coronavirus guidance video that we produced in collaboration with the NHS and Bristol Muslim Strategic Leadership Group. The video gives guidance in 8 languages. It is really important to get information out there in minority languages and we have had a good response to the video so far.
