I hope that you have had a good weekend and made the most of having the opportunity to go out and get exercise more than once each day. It is incredibly important to our Mental Health which leads me nicely into it being Mental Health Awareness Week (18th to 24th May).
The theme is 'Kindness' so our work this week will centre on that.
With everything that has been happening over the past couple of months it is vitally important that we are kind as many people will be feeling under pressure and stress for many different reasons and in many different ways.
Start your day out with some exercise, it has been linked through many studies to a healthy and positive mind. I never feel better than when I have worked hard and got my heart pumping.
First of all, well done to those who managed to quiz this last week. It is great to see that you are continuing with your reading.
Spelling Shed: 15 minutes please.
Hyperbole, similes and metaphor: The BBC Bitesize lesson today is perfectly linked to the myths that we have been looking at, as it is focused on figurative language forms.
There are some good videos and tasks to have a go at, so head there and work your way through and please send a copy of your work to the class email if you are able to.
My Mini Maths: Answers in the Daily Resources
Multiplying and dividing decimals by powers of 10
Another revisit. We are focusing on place value here by multiplying by powers of 10. For example 10, 100 or 1000.
PSHE: The first and most important step for me when thinking about having a healthy mind is recognising what is positive about myself. Being kind to me. It's all to easy to see our faults and not always easy to recognise what is positive about us. Use the sheet 'I am Amazing' sheet in the daily resources to identify what you think is amazing about you.
Once you have done that, I would like you to see if you can draw a self portrait of yourself and around the outside, write in some of those things that you think, make you amazing. I would love to see these and share them on the class page if possible.
Research: To finish the day, I would like you to have an initial look at how the Olympics began on BBC Bitesize, we will be doing some work on the Olympics this week.
