Get outside and enjoy the sunshine (safely) when you can.  Remember to look at how the seasons are changing and the flowers and plants are beginning to grow.

 

How are your sunflowers getting on?  Have they started to grow yet? 

 

You could even plant some more seeds and see what you can grow!    It would be great to see any that you do!

 

I have set some 'Plant' activities on PurpleMash.  Look at the 2Do activities assigned to you at the top of the home page.

All about 'Feelings'.

 

What feelings do you know?  When do you feel these?  Who can you ask for help if you don't know how to respond to your feelings?

 

Lesson 1 helps us to:

  • Identifying and talking about feelings
  • Understanding how feelings affect behaviours

 

Tell the alien all about what you know.  There are some word cards to help you talk to your grown ups about when you might feel in a particular way.
