Did you know that the most common sound in the English language is the schwa? This is the ‘uh’ sound in words like ‘cinema’ and ‘the.’ Interestingly, ‘schwa’ is a German word but meaning comes from a Hebrew word meaning ‘emptiness’ as if the sound isn’t there at all.

RIP Chadwick Boseman. Thank you for all the amazing films and good works. And thank you for Black Panther, which made the adult me smile and the child in me rejoice because - at last. Rest in eternal peace and power. 😔 https://t.co/aeQh4iaE7J

Sadly this was my wedding ring & bag that was stolen. I’m sure I won’t see them again, but I’d really like it if he didn’t have the opportunity to steal yours. Please have a good look at the picture & if you recognise him call 101 ref 6195/21aug Dx https://t.co/esifysCOTM

Got to be my top story of this year. Having interviewed 29 students about their results, this young man stopped me in my tracks. A real inspiration to talk to https://t.co/l8B19VsO3U

With the event falling just as lockdown hit earlier this year, the schools revamped the initiative with Skipping Week. https://t.co/sRhlu8KCOU https://t.co/80Fbw2HpXI

Physical Activity

As far as possible, if children are well, they should continue with appropriate exercise. They are used to the mile a day track at school. 

PE with Joe Wicks is on daily on his You Tube channel. There are links to Joe Wicks' workouts for children, in the list below. 

During the lockdown it is more important than ever for young people to keep fit and active. The Uttlesford School Sports Partnership (USSP) which we subscribe to with our Sport Premium funding, would like to provide you with some challenges and resources for you to try at home.

  • All young people should aim to be physically active for 60 minutes each day.
  • Print off these sheets and keep a log or how active you have been.
  • We would encourage you to do as many of these activities in your gardens, benefiting from the fresh air, as possible.
  • Please ensure you have enough room to do these activities and perform them in a safe manner.

Yoga at School

Michael Chissick from Yoga at School has created yoga video lessons that children (with Autism and without) can practise at home during the Coronavirus Lockdown.

Here is the link: https://bit.ly/2XS0EVV

The lessons are simply structured, easy to follow and to teach, as well as safe, highly engaging and great fun. Parents and staff do not need any yoga knowledge or experience to do this. Michael has been teaching yoga in SEN & Mainstream Schools for almost 25 years and has developed these methods over that time.

Although he created the videos for children who are on the Autism Spectrum, they are also ideal for neurotypical children from EYFS, Reception and Years 1 & 2.

The lessons consist of THREE short animated videos, which you can download from Michael's website at the link shown, and use when it best suits the children. So no Zoom, no streaming problems; no privacy worries.


You can stop, start, freeze, go back, fast forward, when you want…and revisit time after time, after time; thereby reinforcing the activities which, we know, with children on the spectrum, is key.

Children will be learning simple yoga postures, a sequence and a relaxation technique, and the whole family will be having fun at the same time.

Remember, you can access the videos at https://bit.ly/2XS0EVV
