Friday 7th May

 

Happy Friday everyone; today is all about you!

Take a look at my thought for the week and 'This is me' activity. I have included some examples to give you an idea of what kind of things to include in your frame and a song to listen to whilst you get creative - I hope you enjoy it.

Hi everyone, happy Friday!

 

This week, I would like you to think about taking care of yourself and what that means. Here is a lovely meditation for you to try in school or at home, and my thought for the week.

Happy Friday everyone!

 

As yesterday was Earth Day, I would like us all to think about ways we can help to look after our Earth. You may be wondering what you as children can do and the answer is, so much!

Just by learning about our wonderful planet, encouraging others to help and leading by example, you can all make a difference.

Further to yesterday's CAFOSD assembly, I have also attached 'Eyes of the World' template to complete if you wish.

Hi children,

 

As it is almost time for the Easter holidays, I have set you a 'Spring into Spring' challenge. Get creative and decorate your basket and fill it with 5 activities you would like to try over the break.

There are some colouring pages, the story of Easter and some activities you may want to include in your Spring basket - I hope you enjoy them.

Today, I am sharing a lovely story with you called 'Augustus and His Smile'. There is an activity for you; colour in your own Augustus but don't forget, you need to add his smile!

 

Parents; there is a short PowerPoint below with some wellbeing tips for a calm and happy transition back to school.

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Happy Friday everyone,

 

Today I'm reading a story called 'The Crayon Box that Talked' and there is an activity for you to try.  You will need some colouring pens or pencils, or you could make a collage using paper and other materials. I hope you enjoy it!

 

Have a lovely weekend - try to get lots of fresh air as the weather is getting warmer.

Hi everyone, I hope you have had a lovely week and enjoyed our Wellbeing Wednesday.

Listen to the story 'While We Can't Hug' and have a go at making your own Pocket Hug to give to someone you are missing. It could be a family member or a friend you haven't seen in a while, or someone you just miss giving a hug to.

You can also listen to the song whilst making your pocket hug - read the lyrics and sing along!

 

Don't forget to send me some pictures to RO'Neill@saintmaries.org.uk.
