PSHE

At a time like this, it is especially important to love both ourselves and those around us. Here is a nice activity for you to do at home. The activity is called 'pride'. We must take pride in ourselves more often and appreciate who we are and our achievements. You may not think you have any/many achievements but trust me you do! For example looking after siblings, helping out at home, doing your home learning, reading, playing a sport, making a mistake and owning it etc these are all things you should take pride in doing.

 

Firstly, make a list of all the things that are specific to you that you have done in your life that you take pride in. So a list of your achievements some will be bigger than others. Take a moment to give yourself a pat on the back- well done you achieved these! Share with someone if you like.

 

Next, make a list of 5 mistakes you have made in your life so far and underneath each one write what you did to make it right. For example:

 

Mistake- I said something unkind to my brother.

I made it right by apologising and making him a card.

 

Understand that mistakes are all part of growing up and learning and as long as you make them right as best you can you should forgive yourself, learn and move on.

Learning challenge

Look at the aerial photographs below. One is a city and one is town. Which is which? How do you know? What do you know about cities and towns?

Picture 1
Picture 2

If you thought that the first city was a city- you would be correct, the second picture is of a town. The first picture is an aerial photograph of Nottingham city.

 

What things do you notice in the city picture that aren't in the town picture? Think about transport, rivers, buildings. 

 

Why do we have rivers flowing through major cities? Think about transport links and what the river can offer.

 

Activity 2- Rural or urban?

Look at the images in the document below. Decide if they are image of rural or urban areas.

 

Rural means the countryside. Things you might see are fields, farms, buildings spread out.

Urban means in the city. Things you might see are buildings close together, rivers running through, less greenery.
