Week 6 Homework

This homework follows on from our work in Student Leadership and Wellbeing. Remember to ask your teacher if you need any assistance.

DUE FRIDAY 16th NOVEMBER

This week, you will be required to find some time to sit down and talk with a family member or guardian (preferably someone who is older than you) about mental health and stress.

Here are some questions I would like you to ask your family member or guardian. Both of you should answer the questions. Year 5 students please write down some notes from your conversation, remembering to write down key points discussed.

 

What is stress and how does your body react to stress? Talk about physical, mental and emotional reactions.

 

What things can make you stressed?

 

What is the difference between good stress and bad stress?

 

What kind of activities/strategies do you do to combat stress?

What has been happening in our classrooms?

During our Inquiry sessions we have been investigating the drought currently occurring in parts of Australia. By looking at a map we found many places in Australia have low annual rainfall but that that didn’t mean they were necessarily experiencing drought conditions. Students are working in small groups to investigate where our water comes from and how different people in our communities use it. We are using our researching skills, looking at ways to organise and record information and how to effectively share knowledge with others.

During Reading we shared the picture story book, Drought by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley, which led to some fabulous recording of the images and words we visualised while listening. Our prior knowledge and experiences affect the way we understand the text.

– Why is it of interest to you?

 

Reading – Read for at least one hour during the week and record in your diary.

Make sure your diary is signed.
