My name is Logan Richards and I am 11 years old. Keeping motivated during lockdown can be quite a challenge especially since I like going to school but have to do home learning instead.

Having a real interest in something, hobbies  or something to aim for really does help me. I have kept up my singing and acting lessons via zoom which has helped me with my audition for a part in The Wizard of Oz at a local performing arts school.

The auditions were supposed to be in person and I thought that they wouldn’t go ahead but they decided to do them by us sending videos in of our monologues and singing. I couldn’t wait to do the videos and send them in and I am really looking forward to finding out if I’ve been successful.

Having a real interest in something helped me with my school work in the first week of this lockdown. I was able to write a few pages on the subject of Star Wars which surprised both my parents and school teachers. In fact I quite surprised myself with how much knowledge and how much I wrote on the topic!

I think it’s very important to try your hardest and just do your best and if you come across something difficult or a certain circumstance try to work your way through it. Not everyone thinks in the same way to reach their goal . For example if you’re playing basket ball someone might try to shoot the ball through the hoop by aiming in a straight line whereas you might throw it to the wall and let it bounce in to the hoop. No matter what the outcome could still be the same.

During this lockdown I have taken an interest in British Sign Language and have completed level 1. Hopefully I’ll be able to do Level 2 soon. At the moment I also like reading about Super Heroes. I call these things my side hobbies.

Sing and acting have been a passion of mine for quite a few years so these are definite hobbies of mine but then some interests/hobbies come and go such as the ones I’ve just mentioned.

Something I’ve been doing daily is going out for a walk with my family. I have to admit that I do not always look forward to this activity because the weather is quite miserable but I do definitely feel like I’ve achieved something afterwards and I find that quite refreshing so remember to also keep active and go out and get some fresh air!
