P4C- Here is next week’s P4C thinking time activity.
Watch the Video-Farmer Plants the Seeds.
Have you ever planted a seed or grown a plant?
When do farmers plant seeds, and what would happen if they forgot?
Are there right times for doing most things?
Draw a picture with 3 parts: planting a seed, shoots showing, and the final product.
Sing the song together, and see if you can learn the words as well as the tune.
Well done to all the Busy Bees who have sent me work this week. Some awards are on their way to you!
Emily has enjoyed our story ‘The Magic Porridge Pot’ and has made some porridge of her own. Emily likes to add brown sugar to her porridge and decided to have it outside in the sunshine. It looks delicious! She even created her own magic pot like the one in the story. Great work Emily 👍
Adrian has been taking such good care of his plants at home and is very excited to see his cucumbers growing. Look how tall they are! He is still patiently waiting for his sunflower stem to appear! Well done Adrian for doing such a good job 👍
Olivia has been doing lots of reading at home. Has anyone else been taking part in the reading challenge? She also watched our P4C video- Can art be anything?

Next week is half term and as everyone has been working so hard we thought that next week you could complete some of these fun activities.

Hope you are all well! It was so nice to see more of your work this week. Thank you, Rayann, Jahmal, Danial and Joe! I really hope you enjoyed learning about volcanoes, I know I did! If you haven’t sent it work, I would really like to see your information leaflets on Volcanoes so please send them in!
I’ve seen amazing maths from Rayann and Jahmal.
Danial has been working hard completing lots of the tasks, including the RE.
Joe even attempted the volcano experiment!
Continuing to think about our mental health but this time here are some top tips for being kind to ourselves!
Put it on paper. Writing or drawing a picture that says “I like you” or “thanks for coming to my house to play” are easy things to write down and can mean a lot to the person you are writing to. You can even try writing a note of kindness to yourself!
Talk about the good things. Ask each person in your family to say one good thing about their day. This helps us to identify and focus in on positive experiences from the day. “I had fun playing soccer at recess” or “My lunch was extra-yummy” are all examples of good things you might say.
Lend a helping hand. Helping others can be a great way to show kindness – and it can make you feel good too! Help your little brother get dressed, clean up your books, or help mom wash dishes or set the dinner table.
Be kind to your body. Eating healthy foods, like fruits and veggies, and being active by riding bikes, kicking a ball or playing on the playground are all ways to show our bodies kindness. Getting lots of sleep is important too.
Encourage yourself. Go me! It can be easy to say unkind things about ourselves when we make a mistake or do not do well on a test. Instead, try saying encouraging things like “At least I won’t make that mistake again!” or “I just need to keep practising and I’ll be better every time.”
Your body or your mind?
Would you rather keep your body or your mind?
Would you still want your body without your thoughts?
If you could switch minds with anyone, who would it be? And why?
This is a daring one for your parents! Try switching roles with them for a day (maybe just a morning) You become the parent and they become a child.
Think about how each of you act and discuss what happened. Did you like it or not?
Thinking about your mind and body being separate, watch the film Avatar. Would you like to become an Avatar?

Here is some of the work I received this week, it all brought a smile to my face:
Samuel has been thinking about mental health as it is Mental Health Awareness week. He thought about things we can do to help us feel happy. Some of his ideas are: a walk in the park, planting seeds, seeing family, baking and being kind to each other. Such thoughtful ideas Samuel, well done!
Samuel has been busy completing the White Rose maths lessons this week and is becoming really confident at recalling the 5 times tables. Well done Samuel!
Hal has also been busy practising lots of maths skills and made this board game to play at home. He has already won lots of times! Well done Hal 🙂
All the teachers were so happy this week as Hal sent this lovely picture and poem to say thank you on Thank a Teacher Day! Such a thoughtful idea, thank you Hal!
Milena has been very busy doing her home learning this week. She was inspired by the Cloudy Lesson video and created her own cloud art work.
Happy Monday! I hope that you’ve all had a lovely weekend!
