For your mindfulness this afternoon, we would like you to think of what positives have come from lockdown?
Lockdown is a difficult time when we may feel that the things we love and enjoy have been taken away from us. For example, we are unable to go to school, see our friends and family, take part in after-school activities or visit our favourite places.
During this difficult time, you may have learnt new skills, discovered new talents and found more of your special qualities. These positives need to be captured and celebrated!
Today, think about what special qualities have you discovered?
When you have completed them, try displaying them (with permission from an adult!) so you can see and be proud of them each day! If you are having a difficult day, looking back at your answers will help you to feel proud and positive about yourself!
Today, you are going to begin our road trip around North America!
