This week’s topic: Healthy body, healthy mind..

  • Watch ‘Inside out’ if you can.  Write a film review.  What did you like?  What made you laugh? How many stars will you give it?
  • There are 5 main emotions is the film – joy, sadness, fear, anger and disgust.  Can you make up a word bank with other words that mean the same? How many can you find?  Joy = happy, glad, jolly, delight, bliss, etc  Can you create a picture for each emotion?  What colours will you use?
  • We usually have a school sports day.  Can you plan an alternative sports day at home with your family?  What games or races are you going to include? Can you make an obstacle course in your house or garden?  Make sure you have your grown-ups permission and that it is safe.
  • Try a ‘chalk walk’ instead.  Using playground chalks write instructions on the ground to follow instead of using practical equipment.  “do 5 star jumps, hop on one leg for the count of 20, turn around and touch your toes, roar and stomp 5 times etc”
  • Skipping challenge – skip 20 times on day 1 and then increase by 10 extra skips each day. Can you complete a whole week?  How many skips will you have done in total?
  • Keep a diary of what you eat and drink each day.  Are you getting your 5 a day?  How much water do you drink each day?
  • Try learning some First aid!
  • Watch this video about kindness,  What acts of kindness can you do this week?  How can you bring colour into someone else’s world? It could be something as simple as tidying your toys away without being told or giving your grown up a big hug. Use British sign language to give each other a hug
  • Finally, don’t forget it’s Father’s Day on Sunday 21st June.  You might want to make a card for your dad or someone special. Here are some ideas to help you.
  • Please share anything that you make and do to our Twitter pages for us to see.
