It’s Mrs Smith here again, well done you’ve made it to the end of half term – yippee! We really have been so proud of all your hard work and dedication with home learning. We know it can be quite tough and tricky sometimes but you have shown us such superb resilience and commitment to your studies. You have completed some fantastic maths, amazing literacy, outstanding artwork, mind boggling science and your projects have been incredible. I just wanted to say a huge well done and a big thumbs from us all.
As it is the last day of this short term and this week is Mental Health week, I thought today’s lessons could be based around the theme, Feel Good Friday!
Have a wonderful half term next week and I look forward to seeing what you have got up to when we get back.
Stay safe Sparrows
P.S Don’t forget to get practising for Gastrells Got Talent and email me your videos. I would like to see as many entries as possible from Sparrowhawks!

Well done to Hollie who was first to email in with the correct answer last week.
Namaste – To start off our Feel Good Friday I thought we could begin with a spot of Yoga. I know Cosmic Kids Yoga was a bit hit when I was in school a few weeks ago with the Key Worker children, so I would like you to spend the first 5 – 10 mins taking part in a Cosmic Yoga session.
I have found one called Jedi Strength and Focus, but I don’t really mind if you wish to do another Cosmic Yoga class.
The whole video is quite long, feel free to join in with all of it but if you just want to take part in the yoga session jump forward to 24 minutes and 25 seconds.
I don’t know if you can remember this far back but we had a fantastic PHSE lesson before lockdown, on what makes a healthy lifestyle? We spoke about how to be healthy both physically and mentally (remember things, like getting enough sleep, eating a balanced diet, drinking enough water, getting enough exercise, socialising with friends)
I would like you to do a little more research to remind yourself and design a poster to promote a healthy life style. I would like you to give details of your research in your poster, for example: how many hours sleep is recommended for your age and why is it is so important, what is included in a healthy diet? How many portions of fruit and veg you should have a day etc, please make it bright and cheerful and include pictures as well as text.
Fresh Air Ideas Garden Challenges
Being active is important for both your physical and mental health, I know the weather is not supposed to be quite as nice today but I think it is still going to be good enough to be outside (fingers crossed).
I have found these Garden challenges for you to take part in – you could do one or all four if you wish.
Last week’s reading café was a huge success, I hear lots of you enjoyed reading with a biscuit!! So I thought we could repeat the same activity today. Grab a book of your choice, get a drink and a snack (an occasional treat is fine!) and cosy down for 30 mins reading. Remember to talk about your book after with an adult or older sibling – you could tell them what happened in the section you just read, if you enjoyed it or not and why, what you think about the characters in the book and what you think might happen next?
Sometimes it is good to sit quietly and take part in an activity where you don’t need to think too much and you can relax and let your mind be clear. I thought we could end the day on some mindfulness colouring – there are a selection of colourings for you to choose here. I particularly like the lion one, so I think I will have a go at colouring that one myself.
