Hi Blue Class,
Welcome to week 5 of remote learning! You guys have been doing such and incredible job and I have been so proud of each of you when I have looked at your work and had emails from you and your grown-ups. You guys are utterly amazing and I am so lucky that I get to teach you, even if it’s from a distance at the moment!
This week is Children’s Mental Health Week. The theme for this week is Express Yourself. I have added a link at the bottom of the page to a website about this week as well as a video for you to watch all about it. Self-expression is about communicating your individuality. This can be through words, clothing, hairstyle, or through art and creativity such as writing, drawing, music or dance. Expressing yourself can help you show case your true self - your story, your thoughts, feelings and emotions. So, get creative and send in a photo of you expressing yourself and having fun! The photos will all be put into a special section of our class galley labelled Children’s Mental Health Week – Express Yourself. Head over there to see some of the creative things Miss Tucker and some members of the class have already been up to this term!
This week we are going to link as much of our learning as we can to Children’s Mental Health Week and the theme of Express Yourself. In topic we are going to be learning about the lives of children around the world and then expressing something about their lives and your own. In PSHE we are going to think about ways that we can express how we are feeling creatively. Can you find any more links to Children’s Mental Health Week in our learning this week?
In maths we are continuing our learning about time. This week we are looking at telling the time to the closest minute and finding the duration (how long something lasts) of an event. Remember to use the online clocks or clocks at home to help you with this learning!
Have a look in our Extra Challenges page if you are getting bored, or if you are getting stuck on anything have a look and see if there is anything useful in there, sometimes I find brilliant resources that don’t fit into our lessons so put them there for you to explore!
Remember to Be Kind to yourselves and each other this week. Do the learning that works best for you and your family when it works best for you and your family. There is lots of work to do, but remember that I am putting up work to keep everyone interested and engaged in your learning, so if there is something that doesn’t work for you or your family (for any of a thousand or more reasons!) then please don’t worry about it!
As I said last week some days or weeks are super productive and feel like your skating on ice, you’re going so quickly and it’s so easy. Other days feel like walking through squelchy mud and everything takes ten times longer than you want it to. Both days are fine and both days are normal right now, as are all the days in between, so please Be Kind through it all.
Have a fantastic week!
Love Miss Tucker
