                                                             Are you feeling calm and relaxed this morning?!

You've all been busy thinking about mindfulness and  celebrations.  
Thankyou for sending your lovely pictures of all the things you've been doing.  It's great to see you enjoying the outdoor activities. 
Don't forget to try to read for at least 20 minutes each day.  Also, keep practising your mental recall skills in maths, using Numbots, Sumdog or any of the games we've been using recently. 
You don't have to do all the tasks and you can do them in any order.  Have fun!


 
 Collective Worship
Today, Mr Gamble will be doing Collective Worship. To join in, please go to the Class 3  page or the New Articles page. 

Exercise
Let's start the day with some yoga to help us to focus on our Mindfulness. 
You might also want to do some more exercise later in the day. Maybe a walk, run or a game of football? 
Exercise is a great way of helping us to feel good!


Have a go at the cosmic kids mindfulness yoga

Explore your emotions:
Today we're thinking about the times when we worry about things.  We all worry sometimes and sometimes our worries get bigger and bigger if  we 'bottle them up'  and we don't tell anyone.  If we tell someone and share the worries, they can seem much smaller and even go away.  Let an adult or a friend know how you're feeling... it will make you feel better if you are worried about something.

Today's story is about feeling worried.

The story is called 'The Huge Bag of Worries'
 

 
Click on the picture to start.  
 
 
In this story, the little girl is so worried about things, that the worries feel like a big bag that she's dragging around.  The worries are making her feel troubled and unhappy, all the time.  No one seems to have time to listen to her so she can't let her worries out.    Eventually, the kind lady helped her to make the worries go away.  She stopped and listened, so the little girl could share her worries and then they started to go away. 
    

Let your worries fly away:
Here's another idea for trying to make worries go away:
If you're feeling worried, try to think about some really happy things, to help you to forget about your worries.  
Imagine that your worries are flying away on the wings of a butterfly.
You can draw your own 'Don't Worry, Be Happy!'  poster ....' or print using this link:

The Learning Project this week is about celebrations. These tasks are for you to work on throughout the week.  Choose some of the activities that interest you.  You might learn about different types of celebrations that take place and who may celebrate them. You might look at how people celebrate different events in other parts of the world. How about planning a celebration?!
                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Please click on the coloured words below to open links to videos.

Let’s Celebrate- 
Listen to the song ‘Celebration’:
Can you add actions to the dance? Could you have a concert and perform to your family and friends? Record the performance and watch it back - what could be even better about the performance? 
Create a Celebration Reading Den.
What could you have in there? Maybe balloons or bunting? Can you find any books about celebrations to enjoy in the new reading den? You might like have some things to read about Mindfulness and celebrations.

Months and Family Celebrations:             
Can you name the months in order?
On a calendar, write down when different family members birthdays are or when special events are happening in your family. Which month/months has the most/least birthdays/events?
Here’s a blank calendar for you to use if you like:     -2020-blank-monthly-calendar-01.doc-  


Make a bar chart or pictogram to show how many birthdays there are in your family for each of the months.  
Celebrations Around the World 
Happy New Year Celebration GIF by Faith Holland
Watch this video about celebrations.
Lots of celebrations happen all through the year all around the world.
Make a list of the months of the year.
Can you make a list of celebrations from around the world?
Which months are they celebrated in?  You could add them to the calendar.
  • Draw a picture of the celebrations that you find out about and label them.
  • Make a list of any of the events that you celebrate with your family. 
  • Which do you enjoy the most?
  • You could also match the celebration to the season e.g.                
Autumn: Diwali, Bonfire Night, Harvest Festival, Hanukkah
Winter: Christmas, New YearSpring: Holi, Easter, Mother’s Day
Summer: Father’s Day, Eid, Vesak

Create a celebration book.  This could be about one celebration or lots of celebrations  

Write a diary entry: 
Write about a celebration that you have taken part in. You might describe your birthday, Christmas or maybe a wedding that you went to.
 
Crafty Card Making
Create a celebration card for a family member. This could be for a birthday, a religious celebration or just for being them!
What will you put on the front? Can you use different materials to design your celebration card?
You could practice your handwriting skills and neatly write the address on the envelope, ready to be posted.
 Maybe you could create a pop-up card?
 
Party Preparation
Would you like to become a party planner?
You could plan a party for a person of your choice.
Write a guest list for the party, design an invitation and make a list of things that you will need (e.g. banners and balloons). You could even choose songs to play and write a shopping list for the buffet.
 
Design a celebration menu: Write a menu for a special celebration. It could be Christmas dinner or a Diwali feast?
Don’t forget to include a dessert and drinks.
What could the menu look like? Decorate it with pictures that match the celebration.

Bake a cake: Ask an adult to help you to bake a cake. Plan the cake that you would like to make and add the ingredients to a shopping list.
Write the instructions in your best handwriting and draw a picture of what you like the cake to look like.
When you have the ingredients, start to make the cake.
Weigh out the ingredients and bake a cake for a celebration.
 

Celebrate the seasons of the year
Everyday, as we look around us, there are wonderful things in the world to celebrate.
Each season, we celebrate the wonderful changes that happen in nature:
Watch this video and this video about seasons.

Create a mini book all about the four seasons.

Perhaps you could also make a craft project to represent each season.
You could collect some materials to create a Seasons Calendar.
Think about the design and what you will need.
 
Celebrate Summer with some Music and Singing

Visit this BBC website for sea themed music and learning ideas. 

There are some games and ideas, about being at the seaside, from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution here.  
 
I hope that you are enjoying the Mindfulness and Celebrations activities this week.
Take care, have fun and I'll be back with you tomorrow!
