Hygge Friday ☕️ 

Welcome to hygge Friday! 
Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a Danish word used to acknowledge a special feeling or moment. It can be ordinary or extraordinary but is always cosy, charming and special. 
In Denmark people consider hygge their national identity, it is an attitude to living. 

           💫relaxed 💫sense of togetherness 💫simple pleasures 💫slow life 💫coming together 

                                💫building relationships 💫being present 💫comfort


On hygge Friday we would like you to enjoy the day and connect with the people you live with. We will suggest activities for you to try but we will also welcome your own hygge ideas. 
Enjoying hot chocolate together, snuggling under blankets sharing a book, playing board games. Trying to step away from your screens.


We would love to hear and see how hyggelig your Friday is 😊

Forest School - Let's get outside!


On Chinese New Year, a dragon dance is performed in the community. Dragons are believed to bring good luck to people.

As it is Chinese New Year today, we would like you to listen to some music and make up a 'dragon dance' for your PE lesson. Have a think about how a dragon might move, will it be quick or will it be really slow? Have a look at the short video below to see how you could move around as a dragon. 

Another traditional dance is 'fan dancing.' You could make a fan to use in your dance. Have a look at the clips below for some ideas.
