Empathy is the ability to understand and care about what another person is feeling. When we feel empathy for others, we are more likely to act in a kind way. When you do something kind for someone else, you feel happy too.
Activity: How can you show empathy to someone in your family? Draw or write two examples.
Write sentences that start with a capital letter, have finger spaces between words, and end with a full stop.
Using the picture above or a place that you have drawn, write at least 3 sentences describing the setting in your Writing Journals. Remember to use lots of adjectives, and try to sound out the words on your own. Here are some examples:
There were lots of cars in the busy city. It was very noisy and smelly.
The sun was shining brightly at the beach. It was a beautiful day.
Look at the deep, dark forest. It is cold and scary.
Please wait until we have covered this lesson in our Webex sessions before completing the task. Also, don’t forget to send your teacher a photo of your work by Friday!
Gratitude is the ability to pay attention to what we have, instead of worrying about what we don’t have. We can practise this by noticing the positives that exist around us. When we practise gratitude every day, we elevate our mood and improve our mental health.
Practise gratitude at least three times a week by drawing/writing one of the following:
What were three things that went well for you today?
Who is someone you feel really grateful for today? Tell us why.
What is it about our home that makes it our home/special family place?
What is something you are looking forward to tomorrow?

Extension: You can also practise reading the names and recognising the different 3D shapes by colouring in the correct words to match the shapes.
Using play dough, make different 3D shapes, paying attention to how many edges, faces (sides) and corners each shape has. If you don’t have play dough but would like to make some, here’s a recipe that you can try.
