Please read this important message from the Welsh Government and complete task using link below:
We've just published a really important survey to help children and young people tell Welsh Government how they've felt about lock down: how it's impacted their health; any worries they've had; how they think it might affect their education; and also any positives they've had from it. It’s something we’ve developed with support from the Welsh Government, Welsh Youth Parliament and Children in Wales.
It will help Government to respond in the best way to the situation as it develops, and to know how they work with and talk to children and young people during this crisis and beyond.
Your Special Mission is to complete this survey.
We'd expect it to take children 15 minutes to complete and they can do it on any device by following the link. It’ll be open for just 2 weeks and closes on 27 May.

Matilda Wormwood is a bright little girl who is very eager to learn. She has brown eyes, an infectious smile and is slim. Her hair is short, brown and always has a perfect red bow. She is tall for her age and has long legs. Her long legs help her run as fast as a cheetah when it runs after its prey.
Matilda is a neglected child who longs to be loved by her parents. She has an older brother who she does not get along with. She has special powers but is not aware of how or when she got them. Matilda is brave because she uses these special powers to trick those who are mean and cruel. She is intelligent, kind and loves to read books that are for much older children than herself. Clever, talented Matilda thinks she is an ordinary child until she starts school. She is extremely brave but is a scared of Miss Trunchbull at times.
