23/04/2020 Covid-19 Update:
Covid-19 can be a confusing, worrying and overwhelming subject for children, and it’s a time when lots of aspects of our lives have changed, which can be difficult for children to understand and accept. It can also be hard for parents/teachers, which is why a creative activity can help.
The Feelings Jar activity can be for the whole family/small group of children to do or individually with one child. It encourages recognition of and safe expression of feelings. Please see below instructions for this fun activity - remember to take pictures and tweet @ReachPrimary.
We would like to assure all parents that we are committed to the well-being of all children and staff within our school community. We are working closely with the Department of Education and are receiving daily updates, which we are actioning as appropriate.
