A Sound Hunt
Did you know that an owl can hear sounds that are close and far away?? they have AMAZING ears! They are also fantastic at being really quiet when they need to be - cool!
Go on a sound hunt! to do this, you have to be really, really quiet - that will help you really notice so many different sounds!
What can you hear far away? Have a go at drawing it as a picture. What can you hear close by? Have a go at drawing that too. Do you hear any colours? When I hear the wind blowing, the colour I see is blue. Listen really carefully and try and see what colours are coming to you. Remember to keep taking lots of lovely calm, deep breaths and really enjoy exploring what you can hear.
When we are together at school, we have done some lovely cosmic yoga together and I know that some of you enjoy doing it at home too! In case you haven't had a chance to look at it recently, here are a couple of really fun ones that I know you will love! Let me know how you get on, or if you have done any others - Namaste!!
Do you ever have a thought pop into your head? Maybe a sneaky worry, or a thought of "I can't do this"? Did you know, everyone has a bit of a worry from time to time? Even grown ups!! Here is a little something you can do -
Close your eyes and think of your worry, then, open your eyes and pretend you are blowing an imaginary bubble, make it as big as you can!! Then, when its floating, get your finger and "pop!" the bubble! Imagine that your worry is popping just like the bubble!! If you have bubbles at home, you can even use real ones!! Blow the bubbles and pop those worries :)
Don't forget, sharing our worries can really help too, my Granny would always tell me "A problem shared, is a problem halved" and thats what I think too! You are all so wonderful at talking about your feelings, so I know you will be great at sharing.
Here is a really great activity you can do at home, or at school! You can be as creative as you like, let me know what you get up to!

The way the light was coming through the trees and across the grass and daisies was making me itch to capture the moment. I got down on my stomach in the grass to capture this photo of my daughter Ellie. All I had with me that day was my iPhone X which was still a champ for captuing the moment perfectly. I just love the way the end of the day sunlight was making her glow. To me this photo perfectly captures summer, childhood, and my sweet girl, who shines brighter then the sun." • Braedon McLeod - "Bubble reflection with blurred trees."
