What another beautiful day it is going to be! We hope you enjoy getting out to do some exercise and if possible do some of your learning outside! Check your learning grids to see if there is an activity for Numeracy, Literacy or Learning Across the Curriculum that may be well suited to being completed outside in the garden or when you are out getting some exercise.
A Special Day
This online lesson from Poppy Scotland is about child evacuees from the Second World War and discovering what is inside Paddington’s suitcase!
Maybe you could make and decorate some bunting using triangles of paper and stringing them together to hang in your window.
Here is a template if you would prefer:
RRS Weekly Focus – Article 7
This week’s RRS Article is Article 7 – Every child has the right to be registered at birth, to have a name and nationality, and, as far as possible, to know and be cared for by their parents.
How can your name & nationality be respected?
- By being called your preferred name
- Your name being pronounced properly and spelt correctly
- A birth certificate
- A passport (if you need to travel out of the UK)
- You are encouraged to be proud of your name and nationality.
- You get a chance to celebrate your national identity perhaps with a special day, food or music.
- To know and be cared for by your parents – it might be two parents, or it might be one parent, or someone else in your family, like a grandparent or an aunt or uncle or maybe a carer, an adult who children live with, and are looked after by
Maybe you could try one of these activities to help further your understanding of this Article:
-Watch the story – The Name Jar
-Have you ever been to a naming and welcoming ceremony, like a christening or aqiqa? Write a short description of what happened or share what you remember by telling someone about it. Find out about naming ceremonies from other faiths or cultures.
–Draw an identity hand! Draw around one of your hands, write your full name in the thumb area, in the next finger, write your date of your birth, put the country you call home in the next finger. Then in the last two fingers, write the names of two adults who are important for you, like you parents, carers or grandparents. Draw the flag of your nationality on the palm. Finish your picture with your favourite colours or designs. We would love to see any of your hands on your Learning Journal!
We are sure that there will be times every day when children and adults would benefit from relaxation and down time – even if it is only for short time! There is some good advice and relaxation activities for children (and adults) here:
