Wednesday 6th October – Wellbeing

Social Connectedness

I am learning to keep my social connection with my friend/s during lockdown

I know I can do it when I can contact a friend and keep in touch

While we are in lockdown we are not able to go to friends’ houses or have playdates. It is possible and important for us to stay in touch with our friends and keep our social connection with them. This will help our well being and keep us feeling happy. People have been coming up with lots of creative ways to do this. Some ideas are listed below:

  • phone calls                           
  • video calls                            
  • text messages
  • letters                                   
  • emails                                   
  • photos
  • a walk with a friend            
  • play in the playground

Make sure you do all of these activities in line with lockdown restrictions

Independent Task

Choose one of the methods above and contact a friend. You may want to contact a different friend each day or just once. Do what suits you best. You might like to write or draw about what you did and how it made you feel.

Wednesday 6th October – Integrated Studies

Mini Beasts – Living and Non-Living

I am learning to identify the difference between living and non-living things.

I know I can do it when I have sorted things into living and non-living.

Over the next few weeks, we will be learning about all the different mini beasts that you can find in your garden or in the parks near your home!

Before we learn about mini beasts we need to be able to tell the difference between things that are living and things that are not living.

Everything in the world can be sorted into living and non-living things. Read the table below to see how we sort things into living and non-living.

To learn more about the differences between living and non-living things, watch the video below. ↓↓↓

Independent Task

After watching the video above, it is time to test your knowledge!

Download the file below to sort the objects into either living or non-living things.

Once you have sorted the objects above into their categories, your next task is to head into your garden and identify three living things and three non-living things. Use the file below to guide you.
