Martin Luther King was assassinated because of his fight against hatred & against prejudice & discrimination in society. This inequality persists still. The data is clear. The experience of those around us speak to this. Prejudice remain. Hatred remains. https://t.co/WXcNZzdXP1 https://t.co/Vk9k9WpFCY

Earlier that year in April, Robert Kennedy gave a rousing & poignant speech, but one that attempts to inspire action. In it he argues that: “This is a time of shame and sorrow....” He was speaking about the murder of the black civil rights campaigner Dr Martin Luther King https://t.co/M7k0UdCpwa

Good morning everyone. Today we set aside most of Covid-19 planning to reflect on a speech by Bobby Kennedy. A series of tweets over the weekend will I hope inspire and give pause for reflection & action. PSHE & citizenship are maligned as subjects but schools teach them well.

Wellbeing Sessions To Try At Home

We understand that this is a difficult time for families. Please see our guide below to coping with stress and anxiety during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Below, you will find a range of activities that you can do at home. We usually recommend you do at least one activity per day, but during this time when we are all staying at home a lot, why not do more than one a day. 

Stay connected

An easy way to increase your wellbeing is to connect with other people. Why not phone, message or video call another member of your family who is not living with you, particularly those that might be lonely during isolation. Or message or video call your friends to maintain social connections while your cannot meet. 

You might want to check your neighbours are OK each day too, particularly those that might be lonely. These small acts of kindness will be appreciated and will make you feel good as well.

PE With Joe

Joe Wicks, The Body Coach, has a 30 minute PE session every Monday-Friday for students of all ages. "The schools are closed, there is no PE, but don't worry I'm going to take this over," says Joe. "I am going to be the nation's PE teacher!"

Yoga With Adriene

Adriene is an online Yoga teacher with 6.5 million followers. Adriene has posted 100s of online Yoga videos that you can do in the comfort of your own home. The one below is ideal for complete beginners and lasts 20 minutes.  A perfect way to warm down after PE with Joe or to start the day. If you are a complete beginner, try this video 4-5 times to get the hang of it before you explore her other videos. Enjoy!

Cosmic Yoga

Cosmic Yoga is a programme designed to support children with Yoga, Mindfulness and relaxation. The videos are great fun, so the children love to take part! Each session lasts about 20 minutes, and is accessible for all.

Cooking with Jamie Oliver and Family

Jamie Oliver, champion of healthy eating in schools, has a whole YouTube channel of recipes to choose from. The video below is the first in a series of 15 videos of simple recipes that children can prepare and cook themselves (with supervision of course!).  

Jamie has also released a five-part series (Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On) with recipes that can be made with everyday ingredients that you should still be able to buy in the shops – this was on Channel 4 this week and you can still watch it now. You can also find the recipes here. Why not try a new recipe every week!


Mindfulness

Mindfulness has been shown to be a very effective way to reduce stress and anxiety.  There are lots of companies that are currently offering free access to their normally paid-for smartphone apps (e.g. Calm and Headspace) so you might want to give them a go.

However, on YouTube there are many mindfulness activities that you can try. The video below is one of a series of nine different 10-minute sessions. Why not try a session once a day?  You might find it easier to start off trying one session and doing it every day for a week before you move on to a different session.  

Remember, to start with you will probably find yourself quite distracted (even if you manage to find a quiet place to do mindfulness in your home). This is normal! When you catch yourself thinking about something other than the session, don’t get annoyed at yourself, just stop thinking/worrying/planning about what you were and return your attention to the session. 

Good luck with your practice!

If you have any comments on these activities, or ideas for other activities that students (or parents!) might enjoy, please do email info@harristottenham.org.uk.
