This week, Crew Shackleton has been very busy!
I thought I’d share the positive take Crew Shackleton has taken from being at home with their families. I’ve been amazed by the emails I’ve received from the parents of our crew, sharing what they’ve been up to this week.
After school work in a morning, Jacob has been helping his mum do the chores, then he’s been in the kitchen cooking up a storm. Jacob and his sister made lots of treats this week, including home-made burgers and biscuits. Don’t they look delicious! And to top it off, Jacob has been on several walks and bike rides in the countryside with his family.
Faith and her sister have been busy decorating their dad’s house with pretty chalked patterns, showing their thanks to the NHS. Faith has also been on many bike rides, keeping fit whilst scoping the local wildlife.
Nikodem has taken the opportunity to spend some time to enjoy this lovely weather, either on his bike or out exploring near his home. He has also enjoyed completing some of his work. As we can see, he’s in full concentration mode. Good job Nikodem!
This week, Zach has been on several nature walks along the river Don. On his journey, he learnt some new skills. Zach learnt how to forage for wild plants! He picked some wild garlic with his brother and sister. I wonder what he’ll make with that.
This week Zach has been in the kitchen, baking his mum a birthday cake. So sweet! To celebrate, Zach and his family had afternoon tea in the garden. They also had the pool up this week as it has been warm. Zach has been touring round his local canal on his family’s boat, looking for all kinds of wildlife.
This week, Lilly has really enjoyed baking cakes as well as helping her parents with meals, encouraging them to eat healthy. She has spent time with her family, having BBQs in the garden and playing on the new VR headset. Lilly has been keeping her fitness up too alongside her sister. And of course, she’s been watching lots of Netflix in bed. Lilly even cut her sister’s hair this week!!!
Each day this week, after a long day at school, Woody went home to spend some quality time with his pet cat, Sox.
It’s great to see everyone enjoying themselves at home, spending some much needed time with their families. I just had to share Crew Shackleton’s positive vibes during this trying time.
Can’t wait to see what you all do next week!
