Gildy's Evening

gildy colour - Copy.tif

This is Gildy.

Gildy is 7 years old. He lives in Epsom which is a town in Surrey near London and goes to St Martin's Cof E Voluntary Aided School. Gildy is in the same situation as lots of other children all over the country at the moment.  He is having to attend online lessons and some days Gildy finds it very difficult to feel motivated and focused.



Gildy finds numeracy a challenge and doesn't always like asking for help to solve problems. However, Gildy can be clever, Gildy is kind, he loves to play outside and be part of stories, and likes his friends and family to be happy.

Gildy's family are all trying to get on with each other in this strange situation of lockdown. Gildy's dad is working from home and his mum is a key worker at Epsom Hospital. She is out every day and very tired when she's home. Gildy has a younger brother, Tully who loves to play games.

Gildy's Evening​


Gildy has had a very busy day! He's had to make quite a few decisions about different things. His morning was full of numeracy and snow, and this afternoon he was distracted by some chocolate biscuits!

To help Gildy have a good evening we will be helping him make some good choices.
