PSHE

Last term we thought about “Thinking positive” and I would like you to use some of these skills to re think lockdown 2021 and search out the positive aspects.

Attached is a sheet where we would like you to remind yourself about the positive parts that came out of lockdown last time.

The second page is for you to think of the steps/actions you or those who cared for you did to help you when you were having a touch day and we would like you to use these steps again this time round. If you have thought of some new ideas of things you could do to support you in lockdown too then add them to the second sheet too.

After doing the demonstration for 1-2 minutes, plot your child’s heart rate, to ascertain heart rates whilst the body is exerting itself.
