For the final day, an art morning would be very helpful for our new play area.
Draw, paint and collage (or a mixture of all 3) any still life fruits/vegetables.
Design the setup with your child and then let them create without rules.
Feel free to bring these to school on Monday for a display wall.
This should take more than one session and produce more than one picture.
Friday afternoons are usually free play and club time, but a revision of the ball skills from PE would be useful.
Throwing, catching, bouncing, kicking and rolling. Outside or the beach would feel more freeing. Have fun!
See everyone Monday.

Below is a 10 Yoga film. Each page is a 20 second 'still picture' for the children to have time to get into the shape and recall it in Manx if they can. As you play the first page you may think the film isn't playing but wait 20 seconds and have your child sit and breath with their hands on their tummy and chest to feel the breath and the screen will move on to the next one. With each screen try to do the shape on both sides. Enjoy the yoga.

Below is a link for the animation project - thank you to those who had the time to take park. Lots of people expressed an interest so feel free to send me pictures for your animation and I will make another film. It does play slowly so if you have a, 'speed up a film,' facility - it works really well on five or ten times faster!
Here is some planning for Writing, Language, Technology/Science & Art.
The Audio compliments the planning and is a reading of the Manx contained within it.

Yoga with Bnr Blindell
Yoga in the curriculum : some ideas for parents
The children in B1 are used to seeing these images on an overhead projector and will likely bounce immediately into the poses. Try to slow things down! They can attempt these in any order but here are some suggestions
Grouping poses - can they find all the standing poses and try those
Do this with all the poses on their stomach, on their back, sitting and then anything else.
Can they find all the animals and make a sentence with them using Manx as much as possible.
Try the partner ones for fun!
There is a short recording for the children to listen to in Manx about the poses you see.
Enjoy the Yoga session and try to put these into part of a daily or weekly routine.
Gura mie ayd. Bnr Blindell
