Children's Mental Health Week 2021 - a message from our Royal Patron

Watch our Royal Patron HRH The Duchess of Cambridge's video message to mark the start of the Children's Mental Health Week. Learn more: http://www.childrensm...

We are joining in with ‘Place2Be’s’ Children’s Mental Health Week - week beginning Monday 1st February; an opportunity to shine a spotlight on children and young people's mental health which at this time is highly important. The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week is ‘Express Yourself’. 


The week will start with an assembly being held nationwide via The Oaks Academy 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/assemblies/childrens-mental-health-week-2021

The assembly will be available at 9am on Monday 1st February - which we would like everyone to watch – and will feature pupils and well-known faces discussing the theme of Children’s Mental Health Week, as well as ways that children and young people can get involved at home. It will be hosted by Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell and CBBC Presenter and Place2Be Champion Rhys Stephenson.

 

The week will culminate in a 'Dress to Express' day on Friday 5th February during which children in school and at home can, as the day suggests, 'Dress to Express'.

 

 

*** STOP  P R E S S ***

 

All children who have earned their Mission Badges should have received them by now.

Please email if you have done all your mission tasks but not received your badge.

 

Thank you laughwink

Good Afternoon Year Five!

 

 

This afternoon you are going to den build!  You might want to do this independently or you might want to work as a team – it's up to you.  It’s important to talk, so you might want to work as a family; you may want to use this time to work independently and let your imagination run free – express yourself!  Once your den is built, take some photos of the ways that you like to relax, or the ways in which you express yourself.  There is no right or wrong answer – you are just being the wonderful you! 

 

My family helped me build my den as I was putting work on the class page.  Jack and Elijah like to express themselves through music - Jack on his acoustic guitar and Elijah on his bass.  Mrs Humphries - well, tonight it's time to relax!

 

 

 

 

We hope that you have enjoyed your day today.  We look forward to seeing lots of photographs of you in your dens πŸ˜Š  

Remember to keep smiling, know that you are all simply the best heart 

 

Believe, Belong, Be You … Achieve !

Good morning Year 5.  We hope that you are all well.  It is now the beginning of our fifth week of home learning and we know that it must feel really challenging at times.  Miss Faulkner and I want to say a huge THANK YOU to you and your families; in these unprecedented times, you are all doing an amazing job and although we wish that we were back in school together, we are proud to be alongside this journey with you. 

This week, we are going to be celebrating being ‘us’ - we will celebrate our talents and explore how we can express ourselves.  Before we start our learning today, we would like you to watch the assembly at the top of the page.

 

Our afternoon activities this week are aimed at exploring the ways in which we channel our many talents and also by showing acts of kindness.  Showing kindness and making people happy, also helps our well being too - it’s good to see others smile! Later in the week, we would like you to make your family’s day and to show them how much you appreciate them by holding a tea party!  A tea party that you will organise, prepare and host!  We are giving you advance warning to help you organise:

Once you have completed the online lesson, you might want to try the extension task – What would you pack in your suitcase if you were going to Mars?

This week, as part of our 'Life on another Planet' badge, we are going to decide upon the possibility of humans living somewhere else in the universe. Our astronomers have discovered a planet 4.4 light years from Earth - the mysterious planet of Pandora. Watch the video about Pandora here. 

 

https://www.literacyshed.com/uploads/b/12572836-626925103826831951/pandora_discovered_309.mp4

 

As you watch it, make some notes about the planet. By the end of the week, you will have created a report to send to MASA about the possibility of humans moving to this planet. We would like you to make notes on: 

 

Where it is? 

 

Habitats/environment 

 

Native creatures 

 

You can make notes on this however you want to. You may wish to create a poster, or a list of bullet points or even record a video telling us what you have found out – the choice is yours. 

 

 

 

 

Good afternoon Year 5 

 

 

This afternoon we will be expressing ourselves through exercise and music.  Many of us find exercising and losing ourselves in music relaxing and help us to unwind.   

 

PE 

 

Exercise is a good way of releasing tension and energy.  You can choose from the exercises below, either yoga or a series of circuit exercises.

Music with Miss Sanders 

 

As it is Children’s Mental Health Week this week, I thought it would be good to remind ourselves of the song ‘It’s OK! Just say’. Sing or sign along depending on where you are and really listen to the message that the words are telling you. Remember, to talk to someone if you are not feeling OK.

First, watch this short video that gives an example of how music can create images and colours in our minds.

Now, I would like you to listen to the music below and let your pencil move freely to the music. What images and shapes does it create in your mind? When you have filled your sheet, add some colour. What colours does the music make you think of? What do you think the music might be about?
