International Picnic Day – LO: To understand and apply the principles of a healthy and varied diet.

Today, I want us to celebrate being part of ‘International Picnic Day’! I want you to think about a healthy meal that you could make at home to have as a picnic in your garden, backyard or on the park if you can safely socially distance. Design your lunch, ask your parents to help you out and see if you can make your healthy lunch and enjoy spending time outside with your family.

Don’t forget, as always, I would love to see photos of your picnics. Enjoy!

PSHE – LO: To recognise the importance of skills and how different people bring different skills to tasks.

What would you do if two of your friends were having an argument in the playground? Below, I have listed some things that someone may need to do in order to stop an argument or ‘fall out’.

  • identify the problem/ situation
  • reflect on previous experiences
  • consider possible responses and the consequences
  • identify the alternatives
  • weigh up the pros and cons
  • consider your response
  • make your decision

Thinking about the above points, how would you help to resolve an argument between two of your friends? What would you say to both of them? Create a bullet point list of your own thoughts and things you would do/say.
