Good morning, all. This week, in school, we would have been enjoying one of our themed weeks, Being happy and healthy. Despite this, and as it is now even more important to look after our own physical and mental health, we’d like to share some ideas to look at the theme of being happy and healthy at home. Start by watching this clip from BBC Bitesize and reading these top ten tips for families to keep healthy and happy at home.
- Healthy eating – Change4Life, British Nutrition Foundation Healthy Eating week, Food a fact of life
- Physical health – Government guidelines recommend at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, get active with National School Sports Week resources, imovement, ThisisPE, GoNoodle
- Mental health (including reducing screen time) – Tips for reducing screen time, Anna Freud centre, MindMate, Childline calm zone, listen to meditations, try yoga, look at our suggested mindfulness techniques
- Sleep – Good-Night Guide For Children, Top tips to help children sleep well
- Teeth – Keeping our teeth healthy
- Hygiene – e-bug KS1, e-bug KS2, hand washing
Year 3: In this BBC Bitesize lesson, you will learn how to add three-digit numbers together. You don’t need to print the worksheets if you don’t want to – write the calculations in your books. Be careful to line the columns up correctly.
Art: Today we are focusing on shading and will be practising our techniques. Here is the worksheet and the lesson link. (You don’t have to print the sheet; if you wish you can draw straight into your home learning book.) I found this activity to be really relaxing – I hope you do, too!
Spellings: For spellings this week, I would like you to practise words from the Y3/4 word list. You can use the handwriting sheet or any other method that will help you to remember these spellings.
