Challenge: International Day of Happiness

You will need: Paper, ruler, pencil, scissorsColouring pencils, pens, etc.  

The international Day of Happiness is on 20th March in 2021, although you could always decide to declare ‘Our Home’s Day of Happiness’ or ‘Our School’s Day of Happiness’ on any day you like! This year in particular, the theme is ‘Keep calm, Stay wise, Be kind’. So here’s a challenge which will help you to develop your essential life skill of staying positive, in three ways.

Keep Calm: There are lots of things outside our control, but we need to remember how to manage how these things make us feel. Let’s remember to take some time out, to breathe slowly and deeply and focus on what really matters so that when we’re ready, we can respond in the best way.

Stay Wise: Making wise choices helps everyone. Let’s choose positive actions that support our wellbeing and help others to do the same. That’s wise choices around our behaviour, the food we eat, the activities we do, the way we spend our time.

Be Kind: We’re all in this together, even when we’re not able to be together as much as we’d like. Let’s stay connected and reach out to help others who may be in need. By being positive and happy ourselves, it can help others to feel the same way too.

Step 1: Draw and cut out an equilateral triangle (where all the sides are the same length) or use our template on the next page. Fold one point across the triangle until it touches the middle of the opposite line. Repeat with each of the three points until you have a smaller triangle.

Step 2: Unfold the corners of paper (you should now have a small triangle in the centre, surrounded by three more small triangles). Turn the paper over and on outside corners, write ‘Be kind’, ‘Keep calm’ and ‘Stay wise’ (one on each triangle).

Step 3: Turn your paper back over again. Draw a picture of yourself in the centre triangle (or stick a photo) where you are happy. Maybe it’s when you’re playing sports or dancing? Write ‘A Happy Me’ at the top of your picture.

Step 4: In each of the three blank triangles, think of things that you could do to help you to ‘Be kind’, ‘Keep calm’, and ‘Stay wise’ and write or draw them. Have a look at our examples on the next few pages for some ideas. Then, next time you need to feel a bit happier, grab your happiness triangles and have a go at some of your ideas!

Let’s Count

Opportunities for Primary colleagues - Let's Count - NATE

Our Let’s Count day is Friday 5th March. At Prince Edward’s we will be counting our steps.

Counting is important and so too is keeping active. Recommendations for daily steps for children vary based on goals and circumstances. Generally, though, all children between the ages of 5 and 19 should take around 12,000 steps per day. Will you be joining us on our stepathon? How many step will you do on Friday?

Did you know that it takes an adult over 2,000 steps to walk one mile and 10,000 steps would be almost 5 miles?

Did you know it would take approximately 50 million steps – that’s the 25,000 miles to walk around the globe?

How far we will get? Tune back in next week to find out…
