I hope everyone is safe and well.
Just a few ideas for activities this week:
We planned to make a Volcano this week, why not try making your own.
Here is a link to make a homemade Volcano - https://www.learning4kids.net/2012/04/11/how-to-make-a-homemade-volcano/
Anyone following Joe Wicks daily PE will have noticed that he has asked for everyone at home to design their own workout. Why not try designing your own creative ways of exercising at home!
Please be creative and allow your children to use their imagination and think of their own ideas and activities to bring their favourite story to life:
- Read stories by the same author
- Draw different characters and different settings from the story
- Role play key parts of the story, asking other members of the household to take part
- Write an alternative version of the story
- Make finger puppets and put on your own puppet show
Feel free to keep working through the activities on the below links from last weeks ideas as there is a wide range of content on those websites.
Stay safe Dragons!
Please draw, paint or make a picture of a rainbow if possible. When complete, take a picture of it and email it to this address- email@example.com.
The postcards are designed to spread messages of support during these difficult times. We will be working alongside the children of Catcote to make these postcards.
