Wellbeing challenge


This week is national sports week at home https://www.youthsporttrust.org/national-school-sport-week-home, so we have got a sporty challenge for you to do :

The Disco Challenge!

Can you make up a short dance to your favourite dance track ? It doesn't matter how long or short your dance is - it's just for you to have fun, raise your heart beat and get your body moving.

Maybe you can include your Mum, Dad ,sister or brother or another member of your family?

Can you name them?



Have a look at these delicious fruit smoothies made by one of our Y5 children for the FOOD CHALLENGE. I can't wait to have a go at making these too . 



This week's wellbeing challenge is the FOOD CHALLENGE

Good nutrition ( eating foods which give us which our body needs like vitamins, protein, calcium and many more) is really important for your well being. Eating good food can make you feel happier both physically and mentally. 

Your challenge this week is to make a healthy snack or meal for someone in your house. You might like to research some healthy snacks to find out what you could choose to make.

Send me a photo of your snack or meal and we can share it on this blog : Ealhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

I can't wait to see your healthy food photos!

Have you made anyone's day this week by connecting with them ?

The CONNECT challange

During these strange times, many of us have been staying inside our houses and flats and not seeing family or friends. This can sometimes make us feel sad or lonely. So, your challenge this week is to connect with a friend you haven't seen for a while, or someone in your family , or someone you think might like to hear a kind word from you. Maybe you can make them smile ?

There are many ways you can connect with others:

give them a call



write a letter 

even give them a surprise ( social distancing ) visit or make them a homemade present or card.

It will really make their day - and make you feel happy too !

Let me know how you brighten up someone's day : Ealhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

You'll make my day!wink
