Mental Health Awareness Week
It is mental health week this week. Mental health is important for every stage of life, from childhood, adolescence and through to adulthood. It is important we look after our mind as well as our body.
The theme this year is KINDNESS. What does this mean to you? When someone is having problems we can be kind to them to help them deal with difficulties. Think of a time when you felt really upset and you didn’t know what to do.
How do you think people around you have or could have shown kindness?
Today is Wellbeing Wednesday! Please look at the activity below.
It's book swap day today! Please pop to collect your books, and for those children who have finished reading the books from last week, can come in and exchange them for news ones.
Please re read yesterday's story and answer the following questions:
How is you story coming along? Have you included dialogue in your writing, using inverted commas for direct speech? Today, we are going to have a go at writing the ending of our story.
The tree's smile beamed like sunshine. The tree was happy to see it's nourished leaves swaying in the gentle breeze of the wind again. The proud tree asked Melanie to pick another fruit. Melanie tip toed and reached out as high as she could to pick the ripest, juiciest looking fruit that glistened like a ruby.
She took her first bite, the crunch of the ripe, juicy fruit echoed. Then, Melanie quickly ran down to the pond to see her reflection. She could see it at last. She was overjoyed with happiness.
"I am not invisible anymore," she shouted wildly. She thanked the tree, and ran back home to see her parents. She climbed the stairs to reach the 3rd floor. KNOCK! KNOCK! BANG! BANG! Her mum opened the door and asked angrily,
"Where have you been?"
Melanie smiled, and gave her mum a great big hug and said "Don't worry mum, I'm home now."
Since that day Melanie always found the time to go and see the giant tree in the park and took good care of it.
Have I got a clear sequence in my ending and my whole story? Can you go and ticked pink and green for growth my work? Have I written my story in past tense? Did I use adjectives, verbs adverbs?
Today, we are going to solve these word problems involving fractions. Use the same strategy we have been using by drawing a bar / boxes to share your number equally.
Today for handwriting, we are going to practice joining the cursive alphabet 'ng'. Watch the video below, and have a go at joining 'ng'. Remember to make sure your pencils are sharp and you are sitting properly.
Now I would like you to have a go at writing some words ending with the sound 'ng'.
Have a go at this fun spelling activity. Click on the link below:
Activity 1: Create homemade instruments with household items.
Today for music, I want you to create your own musical instrument using items found in your house.
Try creating shakers by using pasta and rice in empty bottles.
You could also try using bottles either with filled with varying degrees of water or empty and scraping them with spoons or twigs to make sounds, or just upturned pans and colanders.
Now have a go exploring different sounds and rhymes you can make with your musical instruments.
Activity 2: Make some music!
This is a fun activity for the whole family. One of my favorite song was from our Year 2 Assembly, when we sang 'You raised me up'. You can listen to it again, by clicking on the video below:
Have a go at singing this song with your family. You can even use homemade musical instruments to make background sounds.
