This is a book written for children about Covid-19.

It is for an adult to read and discuss with their child and is not intended for them to read independently on their own as they may have many questions about it.

Please share this book with your child if you think that it is appropriate for your family.

Many thanks.

Meadow View Covid'19 Journal. 

Below is a template which your child might want to complete during their time in lockdown.

They can do as many of these as they like and we would like them to draw/write about their experiences of Covid'19 and lockdown. What have they been doing? Any good and not so good thoughts and feelings.

If they can keep these safe and bring them with them on their return to school to generate discussion if needed and to make into a Meadow View Journal to show and remember how we all felt during this unique time in our lives.

Many thanks.

Well done to Millie for learning to ride her bike without stabilisers!
