Presently our lives are very different we have had to change to a new normal. We are all immensely proud of how you have all coped and how you are all supporting each other.
The Duchess of Cambridge along with the National Portrait Gallery are asking for communities and families to show, through photographs, how we are all dealing with lock down. This is called the Hold Still competition.
We thought this is an ideal opportunity for us as a school and a community to make our own gallery in school to also show this. You may also want to send your photos into the competition
For full details of this competition please visit https://www.npg.org.uk/hold-still/
So do you have any photographs that show an act of kindness, ways you have help someone or your new normal?
This may be your children waving at their grandparents through the window, helping an elderly neighbour or different activities you have tried at home. You may also want to save us any artwork you have produced during this time so we can add it to our gallery. Please email any photos to
If pictures are emailed to us you are giving permission for these photos to be displayed in school.
Let’s fill our school with lots of lovely memories of lockdown 2020. When we all return to school it will be lovely to have a keepsake of this memorable time.
Hope you enjoyed the story Whatever Next! By Jill Murphy
Here are some activities you could try linked to the story.
- Could you write a shopping list of things you might take on a journey to the moon?
- Could you draw a space rocket? How would you travel to the moon?
- Can you build a space rocket? Could you use lego or building blocks or junk materials like cereal boxes or a plastic bottle? If you have some paint could you decorate your rocket.
- Could you pretend you go on a journey to the moon. Who will go with you? What is it like on the moon? Do you meet anyone on the moon? Do you have a big box or a washing basket you could use as a pretend rocket? Don't forget to take a bag with your picnic in.
- Could you write a letter or a postcard to a friend or your teacher telling them about your journey to the moon.
Take lots of picture of any of these activities and either email them to us EYFS@woodlands.academy or post them on the school Facebook page.
