Good Morning everyone!
I hope you are all well and ready for today's activities.

Today's story is about a dancing giraffe! Music and dancing are great ways to make you feel happy!

You've all been busy thinking about mindfulness and  celebrations.  
Thankyou for sending the lovely pictures of all the things you've been doing. 
It's great to see you enjoying the outdoor activities. 
Don't forget to try to read for at least 20 minutes each day.  Also, keep practising your mental recall skills in maths, using Numbots, Sumdog or any of the games we've been using recently. 
You don't have to do all the tasks and you can do them in any order.  Have fun!


 
 Collective Worship
Today, Mrs Acheson will be doing Collective Worship. To join in, please go to the News and Events page > School News. 

Explore your emotions:
Today we're thinking about all the things that make us amazing!   What are you really good at?  What makes you special?
We all have different talents. Today's story is about different people being good at different things.
The story is called 'Giraffe's Can't Dance'

Click on the picture to start.  

The giraffe was upset because he couldn't dance like the other animals. Then it turned out that he was really good at a different style of dancing.
Do we all need to be good at the same thing?   
We all have something special that makes us amazing but it doesn't have to be the same thing for everyone. 


Now it's time for us to do some dancing!
Join in with some singing and dancing with The Trolls
Click on the picture to start
 
You might also want to do some more exercise later in the day. Maybe a walk, run or a game of football? 
Exercise is a great way of helping us to feel good!

You Are Amazing
:
Think about all the things that make you so special!

The Learning Project this week is about celebrations. These tasks are for you to work on throughout the week.  Choose some of the activities that interest you.  You might learn about different types of celebrations that take place and who may celebrate them. You might look at how people celebrate different events in other parts of the world. How about planning a celebration?!
                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Please click on the coloured words below to open links to videos.

Let’s Celebrate- 
Listen to the song ‘Celebration’:
Can you add actions to the dance? Could you have a concert and perform to your family and friends? Record the performance and watch it back - what could be even better about the performance? 
Create a Celebration Reading Den.
What could you have in there? Maybe balloons or bunting? Can you find any books about celebrations to enjoy in the new reading den? You might like have some things to read about Mindfulness and celebrations.

Months and Family Celebrations:             
Can you name the months in order?
On a calendar, write down when different family members birthdays are or when special events are happening in your family. Which month/months has the most/least birthdays/events?
Here’s a blank calendar for you to use if you like:     -2020-blank-monthly-calendar-01.doc-  


Make a bar chart or pictogram to show how many birthdays there are in your family for each of the months.  
Celebrations Around the World 
Happy New Year Celebration GIF by Faith Holland
Watch this video about celebrations.
Lots of celebrations happen all through the year all around the world.
Make a list of the months of the year.
Can you make a list of celebrations from around the world?
Which months are they celebrated in?  You could add them to the calendar.
  • Draw a picture of the celebrations that you find out about and label them.
  • Make a list of any of the events that you celebrate with your family. 
  • Which do you enjoy the most?
  • You could also match the celebration to the season e.g.                
Autumn: Diwali, Bonfire Night, Harvest Festival, Hanukkah
Winter: Christmas, New YearSpring: Holi, Easter, Mother’s Day
Summer: Father’s Day, Eid, Vesak

Create a celebration book.  This could be about one celebration or lots of celebrations  

Write a diary entry: 
Write about a celebration that you have taken part in. You might describe your birthday, Christmas or maybe a wedding that you went to.
 
Crafty Card Making
Create a celebration card for a family member. This could be for a birthday, a religious celebration or just for being them!
What will you put on the front? Can you use different materials to design your celebration card?
You could practice your handwriting skills and neatly write the address on the envelope, ready to be posted.
 Maybe you could create a pop-up card?
 
Party Preparation
Would you like to become a party planner?
You could plan a party for a person of your choice.
Write a guest list for the party, design an invitation and make a list of things that you will need (e.g. banners and balloons). You could even choose songs to play and write a shopping list for the buffet.
 
Design a celebration menu: Write a menu for a special celebration. It could be Christmas dinner or a Diwali feast?
Don’t forget to include a dessert and drinks.
What could the menu look like? Decorate it with pictures that match the celebration.

Bake a cake: Ask an adult to help you to bake a cake. Plan the cake that you would like to make and add the ingredients to a shopping list.
Write the instructions in your best handwriting and draw a picture of what you like the cake to look like.
When you have the ingredients, start to make the cake.
Weigh out the ingredients and bake a cake for a celebration.
 

Celebrate the seasons of the year
Everyday, as we look around us, there are wonderful things in the world to celebrate.
Each season, we celebrate the wonderful changes that happen in nature:
Watch this video and this video about seasons.

Create a mini book all about the four seasons.

Perhaps you could also make a craft project to represent each season.
You could collect some materials to create a Seasons Calendar.
Think about the design and what you will need.
 
Celebrate Summer with some Music and Singing

Visit this BBC website for sea themed music and learning ideas. 

There are some games and ideas, about being at the seaside, from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution here.  
 
I hope that you are enjoying the Mindfulness and Celebrations activities this week.
Take care, have fun and I'll be back with you tomorrow!
Love from Mrs Micklefield
