Wellbeing Wednesday

 

Enjoy some Calm Me time with Mrs Cocker

Activities

This week you will be thinking about why it is important to belong to a team or group. What teams or groups do you belong to? These might be inside or outside of school. How does it make you feel? What does being a good sport look like? What skills and qualities do you need to be a good team player?

 

Have a watch of the following story and then complete the sheets below or create a poster answering the questions above. 

Make your own memory game 

 

Memory games are brilliant for helping develop children’s cognitive development. Simply draw two of the same picture or print doubles of each image. The skies the limit, you can use pictures of the family, super heroes you name it, you can use it! Lay all the cards face down on the table and take turns with your family to test you memory. The person with the most matching cards at the end of the game is the winner.

Gather your family and have fun singing along with these songs.
