Miss Cox's top 10 challenges for 29th June-10th July:

  • Investigate the life cycle of a frog.  Use the template below to sequence the stages correctly.

 

  • Make a 'litterbug' character from old rubbish/recycling.  Maybe you could use a plastic milk bottle for a body and cardboard tubes for arms and legs.  What could you use for eyes?

 

  • Make a bird feeder.

  • Try bubble printing.  Mix a few drops of washing-up liquid, paint and some water in a basin (any size will do).  Take a straw and blow through it into the solution until the bubbles rise above the edge of the basin.  Place your piece of paper over the top and press down.

 

  • Design a bookmark to keep your place in your favourite books.  

 

  • Design a healthy lunch and help make it if you can.

 

  • Learn to cross the road safely with an adult.  Explore the Green Cross Code.

  • Do some online research to create a fact sheet about your favourite minibeast.  Describe three things you learned, two interesting facts and think of one question you have about your chosen minibeast.

 

  • Conduct a melting experiment.  Put these items in the sun: an ice cube, a piece of chocolate, some butter, a penny, a rock and a Lego brick.  Can you guess which will melt?  Why?  Make a prediction, then test your ideas.  Which items melted fastest?  Which items did not melt?

 

  • Talk to an adult and ask them what life was like when they were younger.  Ask a parent to write down your conversation.  If you have access to the internet, look up images from the year your parents were 4 or 5 years old, then look at the similarities and differences and talk about them.  Who else could you talk to and find out what life was like when they were 4 or 5?

 

  

 

Miss Cox's fab five challenges for 13th-17th July:
  • Create your own Sports Day events in your garden or at the park.  Some ideas could include: welly wanging, an egg and spoon race or a homemade obstacle course!
  • Investigate the life cycle of a seed.  Use the template below to sequence the stages correctly.
  • Explore the concept of symmetry.  Look at butterfly wings as an example.  Design your own symmetrical picture or pattern- draw a line through the centre of a piece of paper and make each half a mirror image of the other.  
  • Draw what you see on a walk in your local area.  If you cannot go outside, recall your route to school and any landmarks you usually pass.  You could use 'Google Street Maps' to help you.
  • Conduct a tasty experiment with Skittles or Smarties.  Arrange the Skittles in a circle around the edge of a plate.  Pour over enough warm water to cover all the Skittles and the plate itself.  Watch and wait as a rainbow appears on the plate!  The colours will move towards the centre and create a whirl of colour.
