We hope you have had a good weekend and are ready for your last week of home learning!
If you prefer a slightly more gentle start to your day, you might like to join in with this cosmic Kids yoga session:
In school, we will be completing the recorded part of this session this afternoon, as there is quite a lot to get through in half an hour before our Zoom at 9:30. You might like to do some of this work this morning and some this afternoon, too.
Emotional Health and Wellbeing: Emotional Resilience
Look at the attached feelings mat and describe together when people might experience these different feelings.
How might you behave when you feel like that?
You could also think about which Zone of Regulation the feelings fall into.
Here is a story called the ‘The Colour Monster’ it explains some common emotions:
Below you will find a simple board game to play at home. Roll a dice and read the emotion word on the space that you land on. Talk about a time you have felt that emotion.
For example- happy: I felt happy when I played in the park.
Angry: I felt angry when my friend wouldn’t play with me.
After playing the game, identify some feelings that don’t feel so ‘good’- for example, sad, angry, worried or scared.
Then talk about strategies that help you to manage those feelings.
For example, when I feel angry I go to a quiet space and count to ten.
When I am worried I talk to my Mum about my worries.
Emphasise the importance of sharing feeling with others.
Below you will find two sheets with a few prompts of ideas of what you could do to make yourself happy again and get back into the green zone.
Your task is to draw and write about the different ways you manage the not so good feelings and get back to the green zone. You can use the sheets above to help/prompt you with your own drawings for your chosen emotion, or if you decide to think about managing feelings of sadness or anger, you can simply complete one of the sheets.
You might need to complete the recorded part of this session in the afternoon and time has been allocated for this today.
Part 2 – Discussion task (This will probably also need to be covered this afternoon!)
We know that our bodies can be hurt but so can our feelings.
Talk about how we can be physically hurt, for example, by tripping over and hurting a body part by falling.
Discuss how this might make you feel.
For example, you might feel like crying, feel sad, feel cross with yourself or someone else…
Talk about and describe the differences and similarities between being hurt physically and being hurt emotionally.
Differences- when you are hurt physically - you might have a cut that other people can see.
When you are hurt emotionally (your feelings are hurt) – there won’t be a physical mark to show it.
Similarities- Both can make you feel sad or angry.
What can you do to manage both of these feelings?
For example, A solution might be: When you are hurt physically you will usually tell an adult so they can help.
The same is true if your feelings are hurt- tell someone you trust and they can help you when you are hurt emotionally.
Here is ‘The Feelings Song’ to listen to and remind us that we all feel different feelings at different times.
9:30 Literacy Zoom:
Today we will be following instructions to plant a fairy garden for our classroom.
After watching the steps involved the children will be asked to recall what we did by ordering the different stages and using time connectives.
For you reference, here are the instructions we will follow:
Here are the pictures and some key words to help you recall the order of the steps we took:
You could print out the pictures and write what we did next to each picture. Or you could look at the pictures on the screen and draw your own- writing the steps as you go.
Remember to use ordering words such as:
First, next, then, after, finally…
This half term we will be reinforcing the correct letter formation of all the family letter groups. We will also be teaching the pre-cursive script for each letter but please only start this if you are forming the letter with the correct sequence of movements.
The following videos will show you how to start your letters on the line in order to write the letters ready to join them at the next stage.
Today we will be continuing to reinforce letters in the ‘curly caterpillar’ family- d and e
Your spellings for this week are:
fire, spire, wire, hear, fear, spear, school, house
You can find the usual spelling documents on the opening page for this week.
Today we will be continuing our block of work on measuring. We will be measuring length using everyday items (non-standard units).
Here is a copy of the video to reinforce the learning at home, if you would like to.
Here is a sheet to show you can measure accurately:
Here is an additional, optional sheet that you might like to have a go at:
We will be reading and spelling words with the sounds: ire- Fire! Fire! and ear- hear with your ear.
For example- fire, hire, spire / hear, fear, dear…
Here are some sheets you might like to have a go at to reinforce the reading of words with these focus sounds. You do not need to do them all pick whichever you think is most appropriate.
For the 'ear' read and reveal' sheet - print it and fold the paper over the picture, read the word then reveal the picture to see if you are correct.
Please refer to the notes in the section from this morning for PSHCE and complete the recorded tasks or play the board game this afternoon.
Here is a short meditation for you to listen to if you would like to end your day of work in a calm and restful way.
We hope you had a good Monday at home school and thank you for working so hard on your learning.
