Home Learning - Health and Well-being - Week beg 15.6.20

 

Teaching children about their emotions and how to manage them will give them the strategies and life skills to navigate their way through tough situations and handle them in a more calm, purposeful way. This will help them manage their mental health and emotional well-being during this challenging period. The important message is that is OK to not be OK!

 

1. Watch the two winning films about mental health -  

 

https://www.hertsad.co.uk/news/pupils-win-world-mental-health-day-hertfordshire-county-council-competition-1-5729586 

 

  1. Just talk, don’t keep it to yourself 

  1. Just talk animation – Jack and Puffy 

 

The key message with these films, is that it is very important that you talk to someone about how you are feeling. This person is someone you trust.

 

2. Consider the following questions -  • Do you think your feelings are affected by what happens to you or around you? Why or why not? • Do you think your feelings are affected by what you watch on TV the music you listen to, or the computer games you play? Why or why not? • Do you think your feelings are influenced by your friends and the people you live with? In what ways? • How do you think being aware of our emotions can help us to take better care of ourselves and others? Why do you think it’s important to be kind to yourself? • Do you think mental health is as important as physical health? Why? 

 

3. Research what is meant by the term 'Mental Health.'  

The World Health Organisation describes mental health as:‘A state of wellbeing in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.'

 

NHS England describes mental health as: ‘How we think, feel and behave’.

 

3. Can the children make a poster or short film giving their 'top tips' for helping their mental health.

This month is National Smile Month. At the moment, it is more important than ever to look after our teeth as we are not able to visit the dentist.

 

When consumed too often and in large quantities, sugar can have a devastating impact on a person’s life. It can increase the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. It is also responsible for tooth decay – the most common diseases in the world.

Added sugars and sugars found naturally in honey, syrups, and unsweetened fruit and vegetable juices, smoothies and purées, should not make up more than 5% of your daily calorie intake.

  • Adults should have no more than 30g of sugar a day (7 teaspoons).
  • Children aged 7-to-10 should have no more than 24g of sugar a day (6 teaspoons).
  • Children aged 4-to-6 should have no more than 19g of sugar a day (5 teaspoons).

 

For a healthier smile and to reduce how much sugar is in your diet, look at information on nutrition labels and ingredients lists on food and drink packaging.

 

To see how you could swap some sugary foods for a healthier option, take a look at https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/food-facts/sugar/sugar-swaps-for-kids

And, for a whole list of swaps go to - https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/food-facts/sugar/sugar-swaps-for-kids#all-swaps

 

Activity -

Design a healthy lunch for a reception child thinking about the amount of sugar that they should have each day (5 teaspoons)

 

or

Design a poster showing a sugary product and what your 'swapped' alternative would be.

This week is Child Safety Week. I thought we would focus on Road Safety.

 

If you’ve been out walking recently, you’ll have noticed changes in how we are using roads and pavements. Social distancing may mean having to step off the pavement. Families are out on bikes/scooters more for our daily exercise, but emptier roads can see cars going at mind-boggling speeds. 
It can be hard for families to navigate this new normal and keep their children safe. 

 

Activity 1 -

 

Remind the children how important it is for young people to see road safety information that is specifically related to the local issues they face near their school. Play the Road ready? Expect the unexpected film as a reminder - https://www.think.gov.uk/resource/expect-the-unexpected/

Can the children remember the Road Safety rules/Green Cross Code - Stop,Look, Listen and Think!

Research some more safety rules.

 

Activity 2 -

The children are to create a Road Safety video/comic strip. The children could include a solution to a local accident hot spot? Use Google maps to identify a safer/alternative route.

Use the campaign planning sheet attached to help with your planning. Think about the age range you are targeting, how  will you make your resource appealing to your chosen age group and the safety messages you are going to include.

This week we are learning about staying safe online. It’s never too early to talk to your child about what they do online and who to tell if they come across anything online that makes them feel worried, scared or sad. This film is made by Thinkuknow. Thinkuknow is the online safety education programme from the National Crime Agency.

 

Activity 1: Who should Ellie turn to?  Watch  Episode 2: Who’s Magnus?, with your child at www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10/watch/

 

.  Ask your child: o Why was Ellie upset? [She thought Sam was posting mean comments about her. Megan was unkind, and she lost the guitar-off]  Explain that Ellie needs someone to help when she is upset. Look at the activity ‘Who should Ellie turn to?’ on p2 of this activity sheet. Hide the answers at the bottom of the page by zooming in on screen, or folding it over if it’s on paper.  Read the description on each line and ask them to decide whether this is a good person for Ellie to talk to. Then check and discuss their answers.  Explain that someone with the ‘good qualities’ they have ticked would be a trusted adult. Remind your child of when Alfie turned to his mum when he was being pressured by the gamer in episode 1.  Finish by asking your child: o Who did Ellie turn to? Were they the best person to go to? [Magnus. Ask your child to explain why, and encourage them to think about how Magnus has some qualities they put a cross against in the activity ]

 

Activity 2: Write a message to Ellie  Recap the learning from the previous activity by asking your child: o Who is a good person for Ellie to turn to when she is upset? What qualities should they have? [A trusted adult. Your child’s answer should refer to the positive qualities from Activity 1]  Ask your child to write a message to Ellie, advising her on what she could do after she saw the mean comments that she thinks Sam has posted. 

 

Explore www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10/worried with your child to help them add more detail to their message e.g. who Ellie’s trusted adult might be and how she could ask for help.

This week we are celebrating sun awareness week. 

The children are familiar with the sun safety rules, but here is a reminder plus the UV index.

 

 

 

Activity -A Summer Picnic:

 

Part one - Ask the children to describe what they like best about picnics. Explain that they are to plan a healthy summer picnic. They will need to come up with some sandwich ideas (use at least 2-3 fillings per sandwich design, e.g. tuna, mayonnaise and cucumber or cheese and chutney). Don't forget to use your knowledge of the Eatwell guide and to include fruit and vegetables (e.g. cucumber or carrot sticks) 

 

Part two - Decide where you will be having your picnic. You could conduct a ‘shade audit’ to find the perfect picnic spot in your garden. Don't forget to remind your guests of the sun safety rules and that UV rays can still damage your skin.

Sometimes when we are stuck at home our self esteem may disappear or be really hard to find. Don't forget that you are all amazing....

Attached is 5 days worth of lovely self esteem activities to do. You might even do it in a day if you put your mind to it! Pass it onto any family member who you think may need a boost.

This week, we are going to look at growing older and the cycle of life. Please ask the children to listen to the story on Youtube of Love you forever by Robert Munsch.

 

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

Consider the following questions with the children;

 

  • Can they identify the main life stages? Start with being a baby and ask 'what is the next life stage? 
  • How do we change?
  • How does the mother feel towards her son? 
  • Do her feelings change as he grows up?
  • How does she feel when he is being difficult as he grows up?
  • How do you think her son feels when she sings the song?
  • What do you think about the end of the story?
  • Why does the man sing the song to his daughter?
  • Is there a message in this story?
  • Do we love forever?

 

Activity

Can the children compile a time line for a imaginary person to show how they change in their life?  What sort of life events may happen? Do they love anyone? Do they get married? Do they have children? What job do they do?
