On Tuesday 02/03/2021 Noadswood will be conducting our Digital Down event and this page contains a whole host of ideas that you might want to get involved with on the day...
What do you need to do?
For this second event, like before, it is an opportunity to give your eyes a rest from the screen and get active and creative - we challenge you to complete one or more of the activities from the list below, which will encourage you to get active, get creative and digitally detox! The pictures are links to ideas and inspiration for the activity which is well worth viewing before the day of the event. All you need to do is choose one or more of the activities on the list and undertake it.
Some things require you to problem solve, others have advice online - you'll need to do your research before the day so that you stick to the digital down theme as much as possible! Many of the activities should give you a sense of personal satisfaction: you will have been creative or taken on a challenge. Some activities involve doing something for others.
*You don't have to take part - if you're worried about your quantity of work that needs to be done then you are welcome to do this if you feel this is right for you.
Unlike the first event though, we would like every student to attend a 1-2-1 booking with their tutor for a pastoral check-in before the return to Noadswood. You'll be able to book this via ePriase with details shown below.
Let us know
We would love to hear about / see what you got up to - if you're proud of anything you've done or want to share with us what you've achieved / how you've felt, please just email your House Leader using the links below:
Miss Marshall would also love to hear and see what has been achieved - just email via email@example.com
Resources and Safety
Many of the activities don’t require specific resources or encourage you to use old items but if you need some basic equipment (like pens, pencils and paper) then speak to your tutor or House Leader and we'll do our best to help you.
Finally STAY SAFE - don't break any lockdown rules and make your parents / carers aware of any activity you are doing if it uses resources such as scissors (check they're happy for you to use particular items at home).
We really hope you enjoy today and it is exactly what you need...
Tutor 1-2-1 Booking
It is our expectation that your child attends this appointment because reconnection is so important for all of us. During this time we will be able to give some more information on the return to school, offer support and advice and answer any question your child may have. Parents/carers are welcome to attend this appointment with their child but please be mindful that the purpose of this call is for a well-being check and will be limited to 10 minutes per child.
Activities - Digital Down
The list isn't extensive, and you might have your own ideas for our Digital Down day, however here are some ideas which we hope will give you some inspiration throughout the day...
Activities linked to Noadswood
We know that for some of you, the specific day of no new work will offer an opportunity for you to catch up on pressing work - the student survey highlighted that some of you could really benefit from this time, so you are of course welcome to complete anything outstanding.
