Wellbeing challenge 20.5.20

Date: 20th May 2020 @ 9:53am

Good morning,

Wow what a day! The weather forecast suggests it could get as hot as 26 degrees today! I can’t wait to get out there and enjoy it although I’ll definitely be putting on some sun cream!

Today’s activity is linked to kindness again and involves making a little present for either someone else or yourself. Today‘s challenge is to make an origami heart.

To start with you will need a square piece of paper and it will be easier to follow the instructions if it is decorated or coloured on one side.

Here is a YouTube video telling you how to make a square from an A4 piece of paper.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLrKrHgAI40

Then you have a choice of making 2 different hearts, one flat and one 3D. I made both and prefer the flat one and found it a bit easier but it’s up to you which you do.

Here is how to make the flat heart (my first picture) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnV262Egucw

Here is how to make the 3D inflatable heart (my second picture) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CN4oPm9bCWE (then at the end you have to blow it up using the little hole at the bottom)

I can’t wait to see your hearts! Remember to e-mail them to EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Wellbeing challenge 19.5.20

Date: 19th May 2020 @ 10:25am

Good morning,

I hope everyone is well and taking good care of their mental health this week. We are still looking at kindness today and how important kindness is to keep everyone happy and healthy. Today's challenge will hopefully help everyone to see that kindness is all around us and I bet there are things that others do for us (and that we do for others!) that we barely even think about.

Today we're going to draw a kindness heart.

First of all draw a large heart on a piece of paper. Then on the left hand side write all the things that people do for you that are kind, all in different colours. Then on the right hand side write all the kind things that you do for others in different colours. If you can't think of many then maybe have a think of things that you could do. The acts of kindness could be as simple as just smiling at someone or saying good morning.

Here is mine if you would like to steal some ideas!

If you would like to share your kindness hearts then as always please feel free to e-mail me on EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Thanks to Mrs Iqbal who sent me her kind acts for the week!

Well done to the children that are still sending in their mask designs as well as their kindsness acts (one here has even made his mum a cup of tea and some biscuits!)

 

Wellbeing challenge 18.5.20

Date: 18th May 2020 @ 10:39am

Good morning everyone, its the start of a new week!

Thank you to everyone who has sent their amazing face mask designs, I've been blown away once again! Have a look below to see what you have all done.

This week it is Mental Health Awareness week so I will be posting some activities linked to this. Mental Health means looking after yourself to make sure that you are happy and healthy. The theme is kindness and involves being kind to yourself and others.

For today I've attached a little booklet for "The power of kindness" where you have to draw or write what kindness means to you and then write (or draw) 5 kind acts that you can do this week (it says month but I think we can squeeze them all into a week!) The acts of kindness can be either being kind to yourself or being kind to others. Perhaps a mix of both would be nice. If you can't print out the booklet then you can just type or write them out like I have :-).

Kindness to me means doing something nice to make somebody feel good and loved.

The 5 things I am going to do are:

1. Make my husband some cups of tea

2. Send a friend a little message through the post to cheer them up.

3. Phone my mum for a chat.

4. Have a nice relaxing foot spa while I watch one of my favourite films (for me)

5. Buy myself a litle treat while I'm out shopping, maybe some nice chocolate! (also for me!)

As always, please let me know what your ideas are by e- mailing  EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Wellbeing challenge 15.5.20

Date: 15th May 2020 @ 10:15am

Good morning and happy Friday! End of the week already! Fingers crossed we get some sun this weekend.

My last wellbeing challenge of the week is a creative one in case you want to spend some time on it over the weekend.

I’d like you to design your own face mask. As we know, face masks are being worn by many people at the moment to keep help them safe. If you had to wear one, what would you like it to look like? You can have whatever you want on it and make it as crazy as you like!

I’ve attached a template if you would like to use it but don’t worry if you don’t have a printer, you can just draw one like I drew mine! Here is mine for you to have a look at, now if only I could sew…


Please send me your designs as I’d love to see them! EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Glover

Wellbeing challenge number 14.5.20

Date: 14th May 2020 @ 10:21am

Good morning everyone,

I've had a request to make the font on my blog a little easier to read so that some of the younger children can have a go at reading it themselves which is a fantastic idea, so hopefully this will be a bit easier to read!

I hope people enjoyed yesterdays challenge, I know that some people did the Jason Manford quiz at 1.30 so if anyone didn't get the chance to watch Friday the turtle or had any problems accessing the Facebook live video then here it is on YouTube today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvhZZq0UnJI

Today's challenge is one that will hopefully make you and others around you smile. I want you to tell someone a joke! In fact, I think you should try and make as many people laugh as possible! Laughing is very good for both your health and wellbeing and it's certainly one of my favourite things to do, especially if I'm feeling a bit sad.

If you don't know any jokes then have a look at these:

Here are some that I like!

What do elves learn in school?

The elf-abet.

Why didn’t the skeleton go to the dance?

He had no body to dance with.

Please e-mail me on EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk with your best jokes or any stories of making people laugh.

Wellbeing challenge 13.5.20

Date: 13th May 2020 @ 10:39am

Good morning everyone,

I'm sorry I didn't post a wellbeing challenge yesterday but I was in school! I meant to do it the night before but then forgot and had an early night ready for school yesterday, oops! Sorry about that but I'm back today and have a choice of 2 for you to do to make up for it.

You've been very creative lately (please see the past challenges below!) so I'm giving you something a bit different today. One is i you would like to relax and one is if you would like to have a bit of fun.

The first challenge is to do Jason Manford's comedy kids quiz at 1.30pm today, available from the following YouTube link. If you can't do it at 1.30 then it will be up for a few days after. and if you want more then have a look on his YouTube channel for past quizzes! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhVLZjO7Tms

The second challenge is also at 1.30pm although I think you can watch it later if you're not free then! The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth are doing Turtle Time! A live video of their Green Sea Turtle who is called Friday. I always find watching sea animals very relaxing so you could watch it, learn some facts about turtles and then have a go at drawing the turtle. Ths live video will be on facebook so you'll have to ask an adult to log in to their account if they have one. https://www.facebook.com/NationalMarineAquarium/live/

Please e-mail me to let me know how you did in the quiz or any facts or pictures you have of the turtle! EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Good morning everyone,

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend! I spent a lot of time in the sun, in fact possibly a bit too much time! I also had some delicious food and lovely video chats with some of my friends.

Thanks again for all your wellebing challenge e-mails. It really cheers me up whenever I get one and see what you've all been up to!

Today's wellbeing challenge is actually Miss Bryce's idea so thanks Miss Bryce! It's a creative one and is to design your own superhero.

Who would they be?

What would they do?

What would they wear?

Have a think about what is important to you and then either draw, make or write about your superhero.

See the attached picture file for all the details and how it relates to Banksy.

Remember to e-mail EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk to show me pictures of your superheroes!

Last week we reached an impressive 447 minutes on Lexia and earned 3 certificates. I'm so impressed with this dedication now let's see if we can get even more children using Lexia, reach even more minutes and earn more certificates.

Please remember to email us if you earn a certificate and we don't have your email address.

Wellbeing challenge number 19

Date: 7th May 2020 @ 10:25am

Good morning,

Yet another lovely sunny day! I'm looking forward to getting out in the sun later although I actually got a little bit sunburnt yesterday! Remeber that suncream!

Today's challenge is a creative one, I'd like you to try a bit of origami. Origami is the art of folding paper and while it can be a bit tricky, it's also quite a nice relaxing activity once you know what you're doing and you end up with something that looks amazing. You could even make a few things and use them to decorate your house!

What you need for all origami is a square of paper, either plain or patterned. If youre not sure how to turn a piece of paper into a square then have a look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPxi1dIWRws

Then you could take some time to decorate your paper if you like before you fold it.

Then this is a fairly simple one to get started, a butterfly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWjEYlMZnhE

Just follow each instruction carefully and the good thing about watching a video is that you can rewind it as much as you like! If you're not a fan of butterflies then feel free to have a look for something else on the Red Ted Art channel.

Here's my butterfly that I've just made. It's not perfect but it's the first time I've ever done it so I was quite impressed with myself!

As always I'd love to see pictures of what you've made or of any past challenges, e-mail EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk to send them or even just to let me know what kind of challenges you prefer so I can make sure I'm doing ones that people like :-)
