This week’s topic: Healthy Mind, Healthy Body

  • Draw a self portrait and around the images write down things you are good at, interests or activities you enjoy outside of school, areas you would like to develop in the future. What makes you unique?
  • Write down all the different emotions you can think of – can you think of an experience where you have felt this emotion? How would these emotions look? How might this make you feel inside? Use the attached emotion list to talk through some emotions you may not have thought of.
  • As well as keeping or minds healthy, it is important that we keep our bodies healthy too! Research, plan (and you could even make!) a series of healthy meals. Post some pictures onto Twitter so we can see them – and let us know how they taste!
  • What is gratitude? How do we show our thanks? Watch this clip of the story ‘The Giving Tree’. Can you now write an A-Z list of all of the things you are grateful for?
  • How healthy is your diet? Keep a food diary and don’t forget to record your drinks as well!
  • Can you create a simple exercise routine which you can repeat every day? Can you improve your score as the weeks go on? Take inspiration from Joe Wick’s PE sessions and try and get the whole family involved!
  • Last year in school, we had a First Aid session. Recap some of these important skills by using this resource.
