Whole School Wellbeing Activity. 

Each week we will have a social, emotional or wellbeing activity. You can do this at any time during the week. They are not long activities.

This weeks activity is on Gratitude. Watch the clip, do the activity and send in a photo.

Parents can also send in photos of themselves too :) 

This is a nice reflection of what we have to be thankful for, especially in the current circumstances.

Writing - Word Hunt

Watch the clip

 

Below is a summary of the activity that is in the clip

Decide the area you are going to use

(inside the house, outside, or both!). Go

for a walk and look for words. Draw a map

of your area and record a word you see in

each of these areas on the map.

Seven or eight words is a good number to

collect. The challenge is then to include all

these words in a piece of writing and to

make the ideas flow. Give your work to a family member and see if they can find your words in each of the areas.

You do not have to print the sheet off if you don’t have a printer - just complete the work in your writing book.

 

Sheet – example

Sheet – blank

Maths – Location 

Watch clip

Bird’s eye view Activity : Place 5 or 6 items

Kitchen Garden

Part One - 5 min activity

·         Go into your garden and sit or lie down.

·         Look around and what do you see? 

·         Close your eyes. What can you hear?

·         Pay attention to the sounds close by

and far away.

·         What can you feel? How does the

ground feel beneath you? What does the breeze feel like on your skin?

·         What can you smell?

·         Pay attention to your breath entering your lungs and leaving your body. Take some deep breaths.

Part Two:

·         Go into the garden and look closely at the plants and the ground. What interesting things can you see? Maybe It’s some ants carrying food, or a colourful flower, or a beetle scurrying home.

·         Take a photo of the most interesting thing you see and send the photo and information about it to the school email address.

·         Have fun and be creative!
