Kindness

 

 

Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week starts today and this year’s theme is kindness.  You can access the website for more information here:

https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week  

 

Each day this week I will be setting tasks relating to kindness.  Today, I would like you to think about yourself.  I have uploaded two sheets - one to help you identify things that make you an amazing person and the other to help you think about how you can be kind to yourself.  You can simply fill those sheets in, or perhaps you can find a more creative way to keep a record of your ideas. 

 

For example, you could cut out each heart/balloon and place them in a jar or other container.  Whenever you feel you need a little ‘pick-me-up’ you can take out one piece of paper to read.   

P.E.

Are you looking for something different to do?  Why not take a look at the ‘Rivers and Mountains Workout’ sheets for some ideas to get you moving.

Alternatively, you could start your day by joining Joe Wicks for his daily live P.E. session which can be accessed here: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1  

 

Reading

Remember to set aside some time for independent reading.  If you are looking for some ideas for your next read, try looking through the recommended reads for Year 3 and Year 4, (see our ‘Useful Links’ section) have a look at the latest edition of First News (use the link under the ‘Children’ tab on the homepage) or try reading one of the Accelerated Reader articles which you can then complete a quiz on (see parents’ guide below). 

 

Well done to AR, LG, LMcC and OB for completing at least one Accelerated Reader quiz last week, and well done LG and LMcC for completing at least one article quiz too.  yes  

If you have a Lexia or Nessy login, don't forget to keep up with your usage.  Try to spread it out throughout the week in short blocks (i.e. no more than 20 mins at a time).

 

Spelling

We will begin again by using the slideshow from the Spelling Shed website to introduce the spelling rules.  Hopefully an adult can work through the slideshow with you and direct you with the tasks, using the lesson plan as a guide.  Feel free to adapt the tasks as you wish.

English

This week we are going to look at a selection of poems taken from the Hamilton Trust home learning packs.  We will focus on a different poem each day.  Please don’t feel that you have to complete all of the activities suggested within each daily plan.  Reading and talking about the poems is the most important task.

Quick Maths

Please log on to My Maths and complete the number task set for today.

 

Maths

We are going to continue using the BBC Bitesize website.  This week’s work will help reinforce the White Rose Maths fractions work from a few weeks ago.  Have a go at one of these Maths lessons using the links below:
