Good morning. I hope you all had a good weekend. If you haven't read the daily blog message yet, please do so as there is some important information there.
CHILDREN'S MENTAL HEALTH WEEK 2021
This week is Children's Mental Health Week and the theme this year is 'Express Yourself'. Being able to express yourself is not about being the best at something or putting on a performance for others; it is about finding a way to show who you are and how you see the world.
Each day, there will be short activities posted which will support this and some lessons will have this theme as their main focus. These sessions may also replace some of our usual routines.
Assembly - Express Yourself
Children's Mental Health Week
Live at 9am, but can be accessed any time after.
During the assembly, BAFTA Kids will also be launching their annual Young Presenter Competition. More information is available on the BAFTA website.
Spelling Tests - Week 4
There are two main lessons to choose from today - one is suitable for those who can't use a printed copy, and one is for those who can. Of course, you may do both lessons if you wish. You will need a ruler and a sharp pencil.
There is also a third alternative lesson with a simpler learning outcome, if you scroll down.
Non printer activity
LO: To read and interpret line graphs
LO: To draw line graphs
Alternative Maths Activity
LO: To read and interpret pictograms
Here is a simpler learning outcome which could take up three lessons.
1) Watch the video as a fun introduction
2) The document has 3 progressively difficult activity sheets, plus the answers at the end.
LO. To understand what it means to be a follower of Jesus and to reflect on what it means for you.
Mental Health Week Activities
Below, you will find the first 4 activities for Mental Health Week. You may do as many, or as few, as you wish, choosing whichever form of expression or self-care that appeals to you.
Express Yourself Activity 4 - Languages
All Hallow's have produced an 'Introduction to Mandarin' lesson, which I thought would make an interesting change from Spanish for this week. I have attached the worksheet that goes with the lesson, if you wish to complete it to send off to All Hallow's.
