Hi everyone.
Thank you for your topic work , you have been doing some amazing research!

Slide Show 


Mindfulness drawing:

When I was your age many years ago and dinosaurs roamed the earth, one of my favourite things to do was to take  my pencil for a walk (it sounds weird I know but Dad wouldn't let me have a dog). Seriously though this really is a thing and it doesn't involve tying a tiny bit of string around your pencil and dragging it down the street. 

You take a pencil and paper and just let your mind wander and draw a line. Then you go back and colour in the gaps between the lines (have a look at the video and that will explain everything). This is still one of my favourite things to do and my notes when I'm planning things always have a doodle or two like this on them as it helps me think (obviously I never do this in staff meetings though - just in case Mrs Acheson is reading this wink).

Today's challenge 

This is great activity to do because it really makes you take notice of all the things that are happening around you that you never knew were there. At first you might not think there are many sounds but you'd be surprised (I found out by doing this that sometimes sitting in my garden I can hear a windmill turning its sails - I bet you never knew there was a windmill hidden in the middle of York did you?).

You might be able to hear some birds singing, or some cars or tractors going past. If you are in school you might be able to hear the other classes doing their work, or if you are really quiet you might even be able to hear yourself breathing! You could make a list of what you see, or you could draw the things you hear, it is up to you.

There is a Cosmic Kids video below that might help you too.

Tiny Treasure Hunt.

Not many people have matchboxes now, but maybe you could use a yoghurt pot or another small container you have. Please remember to check with a grown-up that it is ok to collect things and pick them up (and don't forget to wash your hands afterwards too). 



When you have found your objects you could sketch them and take time to study the shape, colour and texture. 

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?
