We talked about the things that we do to help us relax. Some of us like to read a good book or lie on the sofa and watch a film. We talked about the importance of relaxation, it allows your body to repair itself, restores your energy, makes you more alert, helps your memory, helps you to learn and concentrate, helps your immune system – can stop you from getting ill and can make it easier to stay calm. To help us relax, we had a go at some yoga. Have a go at home too https://video.link/w/Xns9c
A trip to Madrid....
"The team of experts have arrived for the very first time in Madrid. As they stepped off the aeroplane, the humid heat hit their skin. The sun shone in the bright blue sky, not a cloud could be seen. They collected their luggage and made their way to their hotel.”
The children picked up their luggage. What might they have packed if they were exploring the city and learning about the important places to visit?
Binoculars, sun cream, a map, Spanish dictionary, camera, note book, ruck sack, water bottle, money - euros
We imagined we were walking around Madrid for the first time. What could they smell/see/hear? How are they feeling?
“The team decided to explore the city straight away. As they walked, all around them they heard the lively Spanish language being spoken where ever they turned. They walked slowly around the straight, narrow streets, filled with new buildings mixed with old buildings remembering to look up as they walked! As they approached a narrow street, with restaurants selling tapas. The team stop to look at the menus as they walk on by. Until they reached a large square. They soon discovered a sign which read 'The Plaza Mayor' meaning, town square. I’m quite sure that if the buildings could speak they would have many stories to tell. The team find a bench and quietly sit down to take in where they were. They take out their travel journal and began to write”
The children imagined themselves sitting in the square. What might they be looking at? They drew a picture of what they saw? They wrote in their travel journal what they saw, heard and smelt in The Plaza Mayor.
