Dear Parents and Carers,
It's time to give back and help our NHS - this is just small thing we can all do.
Rainbows for Nightingale have launched an initiative to gather some bright and beautiful drawings, drawn by children to send to the new Nightingale Hospital they have built in East London.
How about taking some time to draw some beautiful, colourful, cheerful pictures.
What a lovely way to give something back!
What do I need to do?
The hospital is looking 'pictures and messages of hope drawn by children' for the walls.
The pictures should be A4.
If possible, contributors are being urged to laminate their drawings so they can be kept germ-free. However, if you cannot laminate your picture, don't worry.
Where do I send my drawing?

Lets see how many pictures the wonderful children of St Mary's can give to the brilliant NHS.
We hope you are all keeping well at home.
It is a strange time for us all, but we wanted to say that we miss you all and hope are all keeping well.
We are all trying to find a new way of working together at home.
If you can just do a little bit each day with your children it will help. A little bit of reading, writing and some maths.
There is SO much on line to help you (which I know can be overwhelming at times) but find things that suit your child.
Children thrive on routine, so if you can create some sort of routine each day for them it will help.
I have given myself a daily routine which I will share with you.
1) I start with breakfast followed by a Joe Wicks work out (excercise is great for our bodies and minds).
2)Then I check my emails and have been doing some work on my computer.
3) I then make myself a healthy lunch (which practices my maths as I am weighing my food)
4) Then I go from a 30 minute walk outside - making sure I am always 2m from anyone else. I even cross the road if I see someone coming!
5) Some days I have been doing some arts and craft. I have painted some rainbows and I am going to start sewing on Monday.
7) By now it is time for me to make my dinner. This is where I practice my maths and science and fine motor skills.
8) Finally I relax on the sofa and watch some television.
I Hope this helps, Love Miss Mitchell
