Class 3 Monday 6th July

05 Jul 2020


Good morning everyone. 

 

 

I hope you had a lovely weekend. It was really windy where I live and I spent most the weekend collecting bits of my greenhouse from the allotments next to my house! Luckily I got them all back in the end but it was a bit like doing a jigsaw that keeps taking itself apart and then having to try to put it all back together again.


 

 







Later on you will see that we our topic is celebrations, and that is amazing timing because we have a birthday today!!!

Happy birthday to Tonweya!  We all hope you have an amazing day and have lots of fun. 



 


Now for our work....


 















We are doing your activities slightly differently this week. Each morning you will have activities that are based around mindfulness, then for the afternoon you will have projects as usual; this week they are based on celebrations. 

As it is Monday I will be working at Grewelthorpe all day today so it might take me a little longer to get back to you, but I'll reply as soon as I can. 

These are your mindfulness activities for this morning. You can do them in any order, and you may not have time to do them all so choose your favourite to do. 



Positive thinking diary 
 

There is a section on this sheet for you to fill in each day this week. I would like you to reflect on the day you have had, and write down something positive that has happened. Sometimes it is easy to remember all of the things that haven't gone right or that we have found difficult, but it is really important to remember what has gone right and what we have done well too. The boxes might be a bit small to draw in so if you wanted to draw your ideas instead you could always do them on a different piece of paper.

Colouring task
 

Colouring is wonderful for mindfulness. Try to focus on the present, and only what you're doing. I apppreciate not all of you will be able to print this out so you could always do drawing instead, or any colouring you may have at home.

Today's challenge card


Each day we will have a challenge card that will have ideas about how to relax and unwind and "enjoy the moment". Some of these are lovely ways to relax and of course you can do these at any time you want, it doesn't just have to be this week (just to be clear, when I said any time you want don't try to close your eyes and do this one on your bike, it might not help you relax as much...).


Have a go at this...
  

 



Outdoor activities
 

Have a look at the Woodland Trust website at the link below.  There are lots of activities on here that you can do, and some of them will depend on what the weather is like and if you can fit them in to what you have planned for the day. Pick any one or two of the activities below and see if you can complete them. 
Which ones you want to do are up to you.

Reading task: 
 
 
  
Reading is wonderful for Mindfulness. Therefore, I would still like you to read for 30 minutes each day. 

Ideally, I would like you to read your school reading book or a book that is similar in difficulty. However, if you choose to read something else then that's ok too. As long as you're reading, I'm happy!

Learning Project - to be done throughout the week


 

This project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about celebrations. Learning may focus and different types of celebrations that take place and who may celebrate them. It could look at how people celebrate different events differently in other parts of the world. 

 ● Country Celebrations -​ How are birthdays celebrated around the world? Look at ​this website​ to find out information on the celebrations. Maybe there's a particular country your child would like to find out about. Create fact files to show the similarities and differences between the celebrations. 

 ● Build a Brilliant Board Game-​ Task your child to create a board game that focuses on celebrations. Is it going to be a game like Monopoly or Snakes and Ladders? Are they going to need dice? Cards? Characters? Once your child has created the game, can they write a ‘How to Play’ guide too? Test out the game during a family game’s night. What did everybody learn about different celebrations? 

 ● Party Game Fun-​ Why not ask your child to plan their ideal birthday party or celebration event? Who is going to be invited to the event? What food would they like to eat? How will the room be decorated? What entertainment will there be? Play some party games as a family e.g. Musical Statues, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, etc. 

 ● Cherished Memories-​ ​Look through old photos of previous celebrations the family have taken part in. What can your child remember about the event? Discuss why the family celebrates in this way. Do you have any family traditions? Ask your child to draw a detailed sketch of their favourite photograph from the day, if there aren’t any photographs they could do this from memory. Following this, ask your child to write a recount about the day. This could be done in the style of a diary entry or a newspaper report. 

 ● Patron Saints and Saint Days- ​There are four patron saints in the UK: St. George for England, St. Andrew for Scotland, St. Patrick for Northern Ireland, and St. David for Wales. Can your child find out about each saint and why they are still celebrated in the UK? Look ​here​ for some help. Perhaps they could create a timeline of each saint’s life? Or write short information reports on each saint?
