Count out 5 small objects. Ask children to check and ensure that they know there are 5 objects. (Could use marbles, lego blocks, teaspoons etc)
Cover the objects and check children know there are still 5. Children hold up 5 fingers, check the children know there are 5 fingers.
Place 2 more small objects under the cloth- encourage them to represent the added objects with fingers on their other hand and count on “5 on this hand add 2 more on this hand makes 5…6,7”.
Repeat for different amounts, if it was easy try numbers more than 5, if it was hard try numbers less than 5.

PSED – Relationships – Make friends, make friends, never ever break friends! (Part 1)
Show your child the picture of a lonely child (attached picture below). How do they think the child is feeling? Why could they be feeling upset or sad?
Explain that the child is feeling lonely. Do they know what the word ‘lonely’ means? Have they ever felt lonely?

What could they do if they were feeling lonely, or if they saw someone else feeling that way?

Using the outline (attached below) cut and stick the body parts in the right places, then ask your child to write down things that they think make a good friend on the body parts, e.g kind hands, kind feet, smiley face.

Think about what makes a good friend and how we can be good friends.

Invite your child to join in with the calm me time. (Read the following script and encourage your child to breathe along)
“Sit up with a lovely straight back. Feel proud. Can your feet touch the floor? Put your hands on your tummies, close your eyes and take a deep breath. Now put one finger on your nose and take a big deep breath in through your nose and gently blow out your breath through your mouth. Is your breath warm or cold? (Repeat) Now put your hands on your heart and as you breathe feel your heart beating, doing its work to keep your body alive and healthy. I love my heart and thank it for keeping me healthy. I feel safe and happy. I feel strong and peaceful. Help your imagination build a picture in your mind of one of your favourite people. Who is it and what do they look like? How do you feel with that favourite person?”
