Please find below a selection of well-being activities to help you have a restful, creative, or reflective Friday. Each Friday, a new set of activities will be published for you to choose as many or as few to complete as you wish. We hope you enjoy!
Create the outside, inside. Recreate the natural world in a collage. Use newspapers, magazines, scrap paper, clothes - whatever materials you can find. What landscape will you choose? You might recreate mountains, the sea, a jungle, or a snowy scene. You could work from a photograph, or your imagination...
If you have more time... Could you repeat this challenge using words?
Write down the words you might use to describe the scene, and layer and shape them to create some word art that captures your landscape.
Read each of the quotes and discuss with people at home what they mean. Choose your favourite, print it out and colour it in. Display it at home to give you inspiration when you are finding your learning tough. See the PDF of quotes in the ‘home learning files’ section at the bottom of the previous page.

Can you create your own secret code? You could use letters, numbers, pictures, or something else! Can you get someone else in your family to try and crack it?
