Highlights from....

This week is...

This week should have been May half term week.  You have all been working so incredibly hard, you can take a week off and have a chill out!  Your amazing home school teachers also need a break.  So this week is Wonderful Well-Being Week.  We are using the Five Ways to Well-Being, and each day you will find a few activities if you would like to have a go at them.  Take some time, enjoy the sunshine and have a well-deserved rest.

Connect  

It is important to stay in touch at this time, to spread friendliness and happiness in the community.

 

Connect Challenges:  Write or make a happiness card - post it through a neighbour's door; give it to a shop worker; a delivery person or stick it on your window.  Make your own, or use these templates.

 

                      Draw a family tree, decorate it and make it look pretty.

                      Make up a joke and share it with your family.

 

                      Listen to this story of a friendly connection.

Seed Diary

Lots of you have sent us photos of your fantastic growing.

Have a look at how your seeds are getting on.  Have they grown?  What do they look like now?  Record in your books.

 

 Be Active

 Stay active to feel fit and healthy.

 

Active Challenges: Go on a Scavenger Hunt - how many things can you fit into a matchbox or a little box?  

 

Put on your favourite music and dance for 10 minutes.  

                              Practise standing on one leg and cleaning your teeth at the same time. 

 

                        Do the Joe Wicks workout! Or make up one of your own.

Keep Learning

Keep your mind active and ensure your brain continues to make connections.

 

Keep Learning Challenges: Do the well-being word search.

 

Think of an animal name for each letter of the alphabet.

 

                        Learn the numbers 1-10 in Italian.

Give

Do something positive for some one else to create a sense of hope and well-being.

Give Challenges: Clap for the NHS at 8pm. 

Give a compliment to everyone in your house.

 

                         Make a thank you note for your bin collection team - stick it to your bin. Template here if 

                         needed.

 

                         Make some smartie biscuits and share one or two!

 

Take Notice

Being aware of your surroundings can make you feel calmer and happier.

Take Notice Challenges: Do some quiet colouring.  Find some sheets here

 

                            Find a pretty stick, make labels and create a gratitude tree full of things you appreciate.

                            Make a happiness jar, write your happy memories in it, so when you feel sad you can look at 

                            your happier moments.

                           Have a go at this guided meditation.

Helpful Information

 

We will be trying to go outside into our Secret Garden for part of Wednesday afternoon.  So we will be having Wellies on Wednesday’ as often as possible, please check the class letter to see if we are planning an afternoon outside.  Please could the children bring named wellies or shoes that can get muddy and some trousers for gardening in on these days.  If anyone has any old tools we could have we would also be very grateful.
