Mrs Johnson taught the children a breathing exercise this week as it is Children’s Mental Health Week. The activity was called handprint breathing and is for the children to use when they are feeling anxious, angry, nervous or at any other times they feel they need to! It consists of tracing up and down your fingers using your other hand. When you trace up a finger, you breathe in. When you trace back down, you breathe out. You keep going until you have traced all five of your fingers.
In computing, Year 6 completed their online safety lesson for this term. The lesson was all about copyright and ownership. The children started off watching a video where they were given different scenarios and they had to discuss whether the actions of people were right or wrong. Miss Edwards then demonstrated how to use Google to make an advanced search where you can specify that you only want results which are free to use and share. The final activity for the children to do was then to decide whether a series of statements about online content was true or false.
In PSHE Year 6 have been learning about legal and illegal drugs and the effects and risks involved when people use them. The children worked in tables to focus on one drug in particular and try to figure out what effects and risks their drug would have. They then read an information sheet to further their understanding and shared back to the rest of the class
