On post it notes or any other pieces of paper (try to use bright and colourful paper!) record anything that you are grateful for. This could even be done daily. You can reflect on acts of kindness, such as: a meal prepared by a parent, parents/carers reading with you every day, siblings helping you with tricky learning, etc as well as simply sun shining or birds singing outside your windows. 

Look at the document below to see some examples of gratitude jars.

While making your jar you might want to listen to some calm, relaxing music or you might just want to listen to the music to relax. Follow the links below:

We are going to keep practising telling the time today. 

Look at the sheet below. Can you draw the hands on the clocks - you might have to draw the clocks yourself too using a circular template (e.g a 2p coin) to make a round shape and then writing on the numbers. 

You could also play some time games here

Minute madness.
How many star jumps can you do in a minute? How many times can you write your name in a minute? How many socks can you get into a washing basket in a minute? Just three possible challenges you could set using a countdown timer. Take a look at the ‘Minute to win it’ games online for even more challenges you have to try and do within a minute. These are a brilliant way to break up a day and think about how long a minute really is!
