Writing Challenge – Choose and draw a picture of a fairy tale character. Write down reasons why it is a good or bad character and use lots of examples to support your reasons.
Maths Challenge – Make a game which involves adding numbers up to 10.
First choose what sort of game it will be; will it be a card game or a board game? Then if it’s a board game what will the track board look like? Does it have a theme? e.g. the game could have pictures on of characters from a story or could link to your class topic. The cards could have pictures on them too. Next decide how to play. You’ll need to know what equipment you need (dice, counters, cards) How many people can play? You will
need to write down a set of instructions on how to play the game and also give it a go at home to see if you need to make any changes.
Reading Challenge – Read 1 non-fiction and 1 fiction book and write a book review based on each. You can find some examples of book reviews online and decide how you wish to present your information.
Arts Challenge – Show your artistic side! Create your own art project through dance, song, poetry, painting, modelling, photography, music, etc. you can present it by video, recording, performance, presentation… you choose! The only rule is to be creative!
