Friday 17th April 2020 - Greeting card
We often talk in assemblies about inspirational people. As you may have heard, 99 year old Captain Tom Moore set himself the challenge of completing 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday to raise money for the NHS. He completed the challenge yesterday and has raised over £18 million so far (£18,000,000)! You can find out more about the story here…
Your challenge today is to make your own greeting card. Some people are making Captain Tom birthday cards to help him to celebrate on 30th April. If you would like to make him a birthday card, you can ask ask an adult to post it on social media using #makeacardfortom .
Alternatively, you might like to make a card to show your appreciation to someone, such as your postman, or to tell somebody that you are missing them or thinking of them. Remember to set out the address correctly and put the stamp in the top right corner if you are posting it.
We would love to see your cards at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thursday 16th April 2020 - Nature diary
Look out of the window or go into the garden and make a diary of what you see. What birds can you see? Are there any other animals? How do the flowers change? What is the weather like? You can use your diary to see how things change over time. For a maths challenge, try to measure the height of plants and track how they grow.
Here's some instructions on how to make your own: https://www.rhs.org.uk/education-learning/gardening-children-schools/family-activities/Activities/activities/make-a-garden-diary
(P.s. It’s going to be a sunny one so don’t forget your suncream, hats and water today!)

Tuesday 14th April 2020 - Gary the Gorilla
Gary the gorilla has been sneaking around our school (with the help of Mrs G!). Can you use your detective skills to work out as many of the places that he has been as possible? Could you create a story about Gary’s day at school using these locations?
For a photography challenge, why not use one of your own toys and take photos in different places around your home for the rest of your family to guess?
We look forward to seeing how you are getting involved at firstname.lastname@example.org !
