Year 2 Home Learning ‘Well Being’ W/C 29-6-20

Good evening Year 2 children and parents,

I hope you are all happy and staying busy while learning at home. Thank you for sending in work from the explorers themed week. I hope you enjoyed the activities!

Home learning this week will focus exclusively on well-being. In these challenging times it is more important than ever to take care of ourselves and others, both mentally as well as physically. Taking care of your mental health and well-being helps you feel more positive, more comfortable, healthy and happy and it also has a positive effect on those around you.

I have attached a well-being grid below and this contains various activities compiled by the staff at our school. You can choose any of the activities that you like. It is entirely up to you how you time-table the week.

If you like, you can share your work, video and/or photographs with me on our Year 2 SeeSaw page.

I have added a short introduction to this week’s work which you can view on SeeSaw!

Good luck!

Mr Owen

Well-being Week 29th June
