Monday 18th May
1. Have a look at the suggestions for random acts of kindness. This week have a go at achieving some of them. How does it make you feel ?
2. Many people are doing amazingly kind deeds during the Coronavirus Crisis. Start a Scrapbook of cuttings, articles, pictures of people being kind at this time.
3. Find a quote on the internet about being Kind. Make a poster and send it to the year seven directed learning page. I will include my favourite quote .
Miss D'Auria has added a new icon in the year 7 directed learning page.
Mental Health Awareness so this week in PSHE the theme is kindness .https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week/kindness-stories
Treat yourself (and others) with compassion
This is a new, challenging time for everyone so try to be understanding to yourself, like you would be to a friend or loved one, especially if you are finding things difficult, or things don't go the way you had planned.
You may also find that being compassionate towards others, and helping them if you are able, can make both you (and them) feel uplifted. Remember that everyone is in a different situation and may be struggling in different ways so being compassionate towards others can go a long way.
Hello Year 7
It's been great to see all your film challenge photos... really made me laugh.
This week is Mental Health Awareness week and the theme is Kindness.
The theme in PSHE is supporting this.
Good Morning year 7
I am writing this before Boris Johnson speaks to the nation on Sunday 10th May. Hope that you are all keeping fit and well -Tutors have been speaking to you all this week and it's been lovely to hear all your positive news and hear about what you have been up to.
This week in PSHE the topic is self-care and diet. Sometimes ,at the moment , it is hard to motivate ourselves and the clips discus ways we can help overcome these periods of feeling "not quite right."
I have tried the 5-4-3-2-1- grounding exercise -it's very good to help us appreciate the present moment and not get overly anxious about what's to come.
Food and diet... This week thinking about how looking after what we eat and drink is important at this time. Enjoy.
Good morning year 7
I hope you are all managing to keep positive and well.
This week ,a subject close to my heart, exercise.
Last week we concentrated on our mental well being and activities that help to keep us thinking positive thoughts. This week the focus is on the benefits of exercise and how it affects our sense of wellbeing.
At the moment we are allowed to do some form of exercise each day. It's been great to listen to and see some of the different ways you are all keeping fit. Well done to our pupils in the Lymspham area who have been using their daily exercise to raise vital funds ..such a good idea on so many levels.
This week the lesson will focus on the benefits to our body and mind and some suggested activities to help you understand why exercise is so important.
Hello Year 7
This week we are learning about our mental health and well being . So important and yet so often seen as taboo. Much easier to talk about a broken limb or a bleeding nose. Especially in these strange times it's crucial that you talk about the way you feel.
The lesson focuses on maintaining a positive outlook. There is a power-point ( which should have sound ) and you could look at any you tube clip on failure but I like the one from Michael Jordan who says the reason he is so successful is because he failed so many times.
