Imagine a place called Karmaland where, whenever you do something, the same kind of thing happens to you afterwards. So, if you deliberately push someone over, ten minutes later someone will deliberately push you over; but if you help someone then a short time afterwards you will also be helped.
Questions to think about:
Would you like to live in a place like this?
Is Karmaland a fair place to live?
Would you rather live in Karmaland or in the real world?
What do you think would happen if you accidentally hurt someone else?
What if you helped someone without meaning to?
What is fair?
Comment below with your answers. We can't wait to hear what you think :)
Ever wondered why NASA hasn't sent more people to other planets?

Your fun task today is to listen to 'Bad Dad' by David Walliams and then answer 5 questions about what you have listened to.
You need to choose: Intro, Chapters 1 & 2, which is at the bottom of the page.
David Walliams is reading a couple of chapters of his book everyday, so if you enjoyed listening to this, you could carry on over the half term break. It is a great book that lots of you will enjoy and a perfect way to relax :)
Activity 4: Connect with others
Whether it’s through video call, messenger, phone calls or even write a letter. Our relationships with others are key to our own happiness.
Check in with friends and family members!
For today's activity, we would like you to ‘scavenge’ your home and outside community for different language.
You can then use all of the words and phrases you have gathered to create a piece of poetry or a poetic collage.
You can write down or photograph words, phrases and sentences from signs, magazines, leaflets or even snippets of conversations you overhear while out and about.
Eg. a STOP road sign or OPEN on a shop door.
It might be a good idea to think of a theme for your poem, eg.lockdown or Manchester, before you go on your scavenger hunt.
If you want, you can create a piece of Art to match your poem, using pictures or drawings.
Today, we would like you to write a list of verbs and adverbs (no more than 10)
Then, with your eyes closed, choose one verb and one adverb.
eg. Swimming sadly.
We then want you to act it out!
If you're feeling brave, film yourself and upload the video for us to guess your key words.
Activity 3: Get building!
Look at the Lego activity cards attached to choose a building challenge.
No Lego? No problem! Use cereal boxes, yoghurt pots, toilet roll tubes etc.
Please go through then powerpoint and practice a few poses, understand what they mean and how they benefit you.

This week, we're going to do something a little different.
Your task is to look at the pictures attached and look carefully at their facial expression and the setting they are in.
You then need to write a sentence explaining what you think they are feeling and why.
This activity will help to develop your writing skills, especially creating a character's 'inner voice.'
