Mental Health Awareness Week The 7 Day Kindness Challenge! This year, Mental Health Awareness Week is all about kindness. Challenge yourself to spread a bit of kindness by doing 2 acts of kindness each day - 1 for someone else and one for yourself. Look at the suggested ideas on the posters or choose ideas of your own. Design a 7 day calendar to show what your week of kindness looked like! 

Thema/Context 

 This term, our context theme is 'Global Challenges'. We will focus on natural disasters that have occurred around the world and the causes of these!

Below are a list of tasks that can be completed at home. 

 

  1. Use KWL grid to identify facts that you already know about natural disasters and what you would like to find out. Research different types of natural disasters.  You can use the internet, books, videos. Display the information in a short presentation using any media you wish - ICT, writing, drawing, making models. Have fun!
  2. Write a diary entry about experiencing a hurricane or tornado. Write about the build up, the actual event and the aftermath.
  3. Write a set of instructions on how to stay safe in a hurricane. Use the Hurricane 8 Tip Advice poster in "Global Natural Disasters" to give you some ideas.
