PSHE – Today we are thinking about changes in our lives that we can’t control. How do they make you feel? What can we do to help?
For example, a change we cannot control is moving into a different year group at school as we get older. Everyone will feel differently about this. Some people may feel happy and excited about the change. Some may feel nervous, worried or even scared. We can make this change better in many different ways – counting to 10 and taking some deep breaths, talking to a trusted adult, asking a teacher any questions you have about what will happen in September or visiting and speaking to your new teacher.
Have a go at filling in this grid with some different changes you can’t control, how they make you feel and what you can do to make the change better.

English – Can you write a story based on this image? Can you use ambitious vocabulary to describe what you would see, hear, think or feel?
Here is a story starter, which you can use to continue the story if you wish:
The King had known that the gift he presented to his children on their 5th birthday was dangerous. He was prepared to take the risk of letting them own a pet dragon, however. One day, the twins would rule the kingdom together, and they would need all the help they could get. No-one could deny that a dragon was a powerful ally!
Before that day, though, the children had much work to do. They had to train their dragon!
