Daily Challenges

Hey Guys, 

 

Visit this page everyday for our whole school challenges. When you have completed a challenge, email your teacher to show them and it might even end up on this page too. 

Friday 17th July

Drop everything and read. On a Friday, we have reading time in school and some of us get very comfortable, spread out and choose interesting ways to sit. Choose a comfortable spot on different days across the summer and enjoy reading. We can't wait to hear what you have been reading when you come back in September. 

Thursday 16th July

Find an alphabet!

Write down every letter of the alphabet and find an object for each of the letters throughout the day. List the names of your items in alphabetical order and tick them off your alphabet list as you go. Good luck!

Wednesday 15th July 

Think about something that you have achieved while at home during lockdown. It might be something that you couldn't do that you can do now or it might be something you did for someone else that you are proud of. It might even be something that someone else is proud of you for. We can't wait to her about your achievements.

Monday 29th June

While we have been at home, lots of you will have watched lots of different films. Which was the best one you have watched? Would you recommend it to a friend? Why was it good? Present a short review of your chosen film any way you want to. 

Benjamin has watched lots of films and has an excellent recommendation:

Films that I’ve watched during lockdown

· Cars 3-2nd

· Up-4th

· Bugs life-5th

· Inside out-7th

· Onward- 1st

· Bolt-8th

· Monsters. Inc-3rd

· Incredibles 2-6th

 

Out of all the films that I’ve watched during lockdown, I think that Onward was the Best!

This film is made by Disney Pixar and is about two boys named Ian and Barley Lightfoot who live with their mam Laurel. Sadly, the boys’ dad passed away when they were young. Barley (the oldest son) only had 4 memories of his dad but Ian (the youngest son) had none. On Ian’s 16th birthday, Laurel gave them both a present from their dad. He had left them a special gem, a wizard stick and a note that was a magic spell. The boys set out on a quest to bring back their dad for a day and have lots of magical adventures along the way.

I would recommend this film to a friend because it was really funny and makes you laugh. It’s also a great family film and has something for everybody.

I would rate this film 10 stars out of 10

Friday 5th June

Today is World Environment day.

The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature.

Yet, these are exceptional times in which nature is sending us a message:

To care for ourselves we must care for nature.

It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To raise our voices.

It’s time to build back better for People and Planet.

This World Environment Day, it’s Time for Nature.

Follow the link below to find more information about the day. There are lots of things you can do to keep animals safe and help the environment. We have thought of lots of activities you might want today as your challenge. You might want to pick one or do a few.

  1. What is your favourite thing about nature? Can you tell us why it is your favourite thing and what we can do to preserve it?
  2. Life Hack! Can you think of a way to recycle or reuse something in a way that might help the environment? Is it a life hack? Have a go. Create your own YouTube style video to share what you have recycled/reused. Maybe have a look at some recycling life hack videos first to see what you could make or do.
  3. Design your own Nature Scavenger Hunt for a family member to complete. What might you add to it? Birds chirping, a smooth rock, a spiky bush, an animal habitat etc.
  4. Could you make a shoe box habitat for a small animal? Don’t forget to do a little bit of research to see what a small animal would need inside their home.
  5. Phonics challenge – Can you be a detective and hunt around your house for the following graphemes – oa, a_e, ng, ee, ck, i_e, er, ea, sh, or?  Let’s get creative! Using recycling, empty packaging or old magazines, can you find words to match the categories. Check out the picture below for an example.
  6. Spelling detectives. Can you complete the task above using a spelling rule you have learned in your year group? Could you use a specific prefix or suffix? Could you find homophones or near homophones? Have a go! We can’t wait to see what you find!

Don’t forget to email your teacher and share what you have done. We can’t wait to see your World Environment Day work!

Lots of people say that 4th May is Star Wars day (because of the phrase "May the force be with you". If you change the word force to fourth it becomes quite funny).

 

In the Star Wars stories, there are lots of different aliens that can communicate with each other. If you met an alien, what might it look like? Would it be kind? What might you talk about?
