Wellbeing Wake Up

I Can

It is important to remember that you cannot solve everything. You can always do something to feel better and to help others feel better. Think about all the things you CAN do. Create a poster with the words ‘I Can’ in the middle. Around the outside, write down all the things you can do to help yourself and others.

Think about the actions you can do, like listening to a friend who is sad or doing a breathing exercise to feel calmer. Start to think about the people who can help you too. Who can you ask for help?

9:10-10:10

Maths

Hula Hoop Clock

As you know there will be no on line lessons today so I thought it would be nice to do a fun activity for our maths lesson. Continuing with our topic on time and wanting you all to explore the different ways time is displayed I thought you would enjoy making your own analogue clock.

I can hear you saying, ‘what is an analogue clock?’ I’m sure most of you know but for the ones that don’t an analogue clock is a traditional clock that shows what time it is with hands pointing to the numbers.

I have attached an image below for you to see, I am confident you have all seen clocks similar to this before. Take a look at the clock to see the numbers, the minutes in between the numbers and the hands.

Once you have done that I would like you to take a look at the second image that I have attached, it is a picture of a clock that has been made by using a hula hoop.

Your task today is to make an analogue clock. If you have not got a hula hoop try and find something that is round or perhaps you could use chalk (if you are outside) to draw it, pen and paper will be fine too. Remember to include all of the numbers from 1-12, make sure you put them in the right positions on the clock, also remember to make sure the hands are different lengths. Use the images to help you.

Once you have made your clock I would like you to practice what we have learnt so far this week. I want you to only concentrate on hours and minutes. Put your clock hands in position to tell a particular time, for example 1 o’clock, so the small hand (the hour hand) is pointing to the number 1 and the larger hand (the minute hand) is pointing to the number 12, number 12 is known as o’clock. I would then like you to move the minute hand so it is pointing to a different number such as number 6. I want you to write in your workbooks the time you started at and the time you finished at, I would then like you to work out how many hours, minutes or both that your clock has moved.

For example:

Start time: 12.30

Finish time: 1.35

12.30 to 1.30 = 1 hour                         30 minutes past to 35 minutes past is 5 minutes

My clock has moved forward 1 hour 5 minutes.

Helpful hint: Remember there are five minutes in between each of the numbers on a clock.

A clock only goes forward, it moves in a right direction, for example if  the hands are both at number 12 they will both go towards the number 1, they never go the other way. This is known as clockwise.

I look forward to seeing your clocks and the different times your clock has moved to.

10:30-10:50

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

10:50 – 11:50

English - Comprehension

Comprehension Book One (the one with the train on) – Pages 22 & 23 Poems about Knights

Comprehension Book One (the one with Stonehenge on- if you have this one) – Pages 18-19 High Adventure

We will not be having an online lesson today for our English comprehension.  As you know we usually share a text together and discuss what we have read, however as we are having a wellbeing day and taking a break from being on screen you will be working through both texts independently.

The first text contains more information about the lifestyle of the Maya people. You will discover how important a game they played, called Pok-A-Tok, was to them.  I have attached a set of questions below relevant to this text, please answer all of the questions, you will find all of the answers in the text. Please write the answers in your blue books and make sure they are full sentences.

Once you have completed the set of questions about a part of the Mayan’s lifestyle please read the text and complete the questions in your comprehension workbooks, the page numbers are above.

Thinking Time

This week I would like you to write down your thoughts and feelings about what people think about you. Do they see you as a kind or caring or loving or sporty or funny kind of person?

Draw a picture of yourself in the middle of your page – around your picture I would like you to think about how people see you – if you could ask them, what adjectives would they tell you? Write them all around your picture and make it nice and colourful.

1:15 – 2:35

Art

We will be continuing with our work today on our Maya headdresses. Last week you all worked really hard and I saw some amazing headdresses that you made, so well done.

Last week’s headdresses were made from natural material which means you probably found them outside. The children in school went out into the woods and gathered the material to make their headdresses, this is probably how the Maya people would have gathered the material ready to make theirs.

For this week’s task I would like you to think about what types of material you would use to make a headdress. The materials do not have to be natural like last week’s headdresses. I would like you to sketch a headdress, one that you would like to make for yourself, labelling all the materials that you will use.

Guided help: I would use cardboard, plastic diamonds, feathers, colouring pencils etc…

Sketch your images in your workbooks and label all the different parts, make them colourful. I have attached some images below to help you.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Barefoot Walking

Please complete a safety check before you go outside to make sure there’s no glass or debris on the floor that could hurt you. I would like you to go outside to your garden or outside area with nothing on your feet and take a little walk.

It is thought that walking barefoot on the Earth enhances health and provides feelings of well-being. This practice occurs in diverse cultures around the world. Walking barefoot on uneven ground helps to strengthen core muscles and supports balance development. Stand still on the grass, soil, sand, etc, and take a moment to check on how this feels.

What sensations are there? Now try walking around the chosen environment and repeat.
