Children's Mental Health Week

Can you think of ways to express yourself?

 

Remember, just as we look after our physical health(our bodies) by doing things like exercising, eating well and getting enough sleep, we also need to look after our mental health (our minds). One way of caring for our mental health is to notice and share how we are feeling. Expressing ourselves in creative ways can help us do this.

 

Think of something creative that you enjoy doing and see if you can create something that expresses how you are feeling at the moment. It may be more than one feeling.

 

You could

  • write a story
  • draw or paint something
  • create a model
  • make up a dance
  • write a song or poem
  • make a poster
  • make a video

 

Send in photographs of your creative way of expressing yourself, you can email the year 6 mailbox.

Blame Fairly

 

Read the text below...

 

Nicki and Khan are good friends. They are in the same basketball team and play together every Saturday. Recently, their team lost a semi-final by two points and they weren't able to get into the finals. After the game, they were all disappointed, but they thought differently about why they had lost the game. Nicki said it was her fault the team had lost, because she missed an important three point shot. Nicki was really angry with herself. She was surprised to hear that Khan thought they had lost because two members of the team arrived late for the game and did not play well. Also, Khan thought it was bad luck that their team's best player was sick and couldn't play.

Blame fairly. How much of what happened was due to you, to others and to bad luck and circumstance?

 

Me                 

Others 

Bad luck or circumstance

 

  • Who or what did Nicki feel was to blame?
  • What did Khan think?

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Book

Blame Fairly.

  • What would happen if we always blamed ourselves unfairly when things went wrong in our lives?
  • What would happen if we always blamed others unfairly when things went wrong in our lives?
  • What would happen if we always blamed things on bad luck ?

Think of the things that may have gone wrong for you over the past week, write bullet points of the problems and then decide whether it was you, others or bad luck and circumstance that caused things to go wrong. Try to be HONEST! BLAME FAIRLY!

Hello Year 6,

 

Last week we were looking at Kindness as a core value in PSHE.

During your time in isolation please keep a diary of 'Acts of Kindness'.

 

Every day, try to do some thing kind for someone in your family. It has to be in your household because none of us can go out until Thursday 15th October! 

 

Bring your 'Acts of Kindness' in to school on Thursday 15th so that we can share what you have done. Each day record -

 

The date

Who you were kind to

What you did

What the results were - your family's reaction to your kind deeds
