We all know being active is really important but even more so during these times. It can be very easy to just stay cozy on the sofa 


Try to do a little exercise or movement each day and let us know how you're getting on! 


Below are some video ideas but you may have another suggestion you would like to share! 



PSHE and Well-Being:


Looking after ourselves should always be a priority but even more so in these challenging times. If we don't look after ourselves how can we look after those we love the most and those around us?


Over the coming weeks take some time to enjoy some activities with your family. Many of the home learning tasks are designed to be done with others and this is a great opportunity to spend some time learning together and enjoying each others' company. 


Below are a few activities designed with well-being in mind. 


As with any of the other work, please send us pictures or a few words in an email explaining what you did. Remember, documenting these activities is not the main focus so please don't feel pressured to remember to take pictures just enjoy the time you spend doing the activity.


If you wish to complete the PSHE activities we would have been doing in class, there is a document below for you to have a look at. 


This week we would like you to look at community and your place in it.

Below is a Power point and then a work pack to look at and work through.
