Good Morning P4!!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!!
I have decided that Monday’s theme is Mindful Monday. Before you start your working today I want you to take a moment and think about the things that make you happy, smile and laugh. Treasure those things and make sure you do something that makes you happy or smile or laugh today!!
It is also health week this week so make sure to look out for health week activities to complete and participate in.
Seeing as it is mindful Monday, I want to make health and wellbeing the main focus today although there is a literacy task and a numeracy task too.
Health and Wellbeing
Power flower – Remember a while ago we all made a power flower in school? Well today your challenge is to make your own home flower power. I have attached a flower power template you could use. This flower aims to help with a time when you are struggling or upset and it is to give you power and strength within you to keep going and not to give up.
So in the middle of your flower I would like you to put ‘power flower’
Then in the petals put some positive mindset quotes. Here are a few example’s although I know you are all very good at coming up with your own quotes too.
‘Don’t give up’
‘Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud’
‘Think Positive, be positive’
‘Its going to be ok’
(Alternatively in the power flower you could write your strategies you use which will help you if you are upset. For example, read a book, bounce a ball, draw or colour, sing a song, listen to music or play a game)
Positive mindset poster – Another activity today focussed around mindful Monday, I would like you to create a poster to promote a positive mindset. Think about the posters that were made for the Glee competition – Bright, colourful, and eye catching. I have attached a few examples for inspiration at the bottom of this post.
For today I would like us to continue to practise your multiplication times tables. For this I have attached a game to play. Copy the grid into your jotter. Roll 2 dice and multiply the two numbers and then colour in the grid. The first person to colour four in a row wins.
If you finish the game why not make up your own version or something similar?
You will need a dice
– If you don’t have one you could make one or you could follow this link for a virtual dice. https://freeonlinedice.com
Ok so today I would like you to start thinking about your story writing because you have such good creative ideas.
This weeks story title is.. The Tunnel
I have attached a story starter visualiser inspiration to help you create your own story.
Plan your story first ( you could time yourself if you wish) remember a good story comes from a good plan to keep your creative ideas focussed. You could use a 3 part story plan or think about our story mountain plans we use.
Then I would like you to start writing your story. However you have all week to finish it. You can type it up using word and attach it or send it to me on google classroom or you can write it in your snapshot jotters.
Have a great day!
