The Duchess of Cambridge to lead an online assembly on mental wellbeing among children
Tomorrow, the Duchess of Cambridge will lead an online assembly for the Oak National Academy during which she will speak about the importance of mental wellbeing among children. The theme of the Duchess’ assembly is ‘spread a little kindness’ and is based on a lesson plan which is available on the Mentally Healthy Schools platform. This platform was developed in collaboration with children’s mental health charity Place2Be and encourages children to explore ways in which they can show kindness and recognise the benefits of kindness to others.
The Mentally Healthy Schools platform can be accessed here:
The assembly will be live on the Oak National Academy website at 11am on Thursday 18 June and can be accessed here:
A recording of the assembly will be available to view on the Oak National Academy website following the event.
KS1 There are lots of Good News stories in the Bible. This week we are going to learn about a story Jesus told about two builders. Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXWHLB1f6_U
Talk about the story with your family. Try to imagine what each of the builders might say at different points in the story – you could play the clip again and pause it at different points. You might like to draw some pictures and add speech bubbles.
Take time to reflect on the story. When people read this story from the Bible, why do you think Christian believers would think that this story was good news?

This week I thought it would be nice to have a look at a poem. I have included a few activities for you to have a go at.
Although there are activities within this lesson, you can utilise this opportunity to create real-life examples (for example shopping lists) instead.
This week, we will start our new topic on a King of England.
To find out more about them I have created a PowerPoint all about their family. Your activity is to use this information to create their family tree. I have uploaded a template that you can use with pictures from the PowerPoint or you can create your own. I have included some 'Find out' questions for you to research the topic a little bit more.
Fact about me: I LOVE all things history and I am actually reading a book about this person now.
With the lovely weather we have been having, and hopefully having again soon (fingers crossed), it is important to know some sun safety. Here is a PowerPoint to tell you a bit more about how to stay safe in the sun, an activity to show what you have learnt. There are some templates for creating a poster, if you wanted to, on how to stay safe in the sun.
