Activity 1 - PSHE
Write a letter or a card to someone who is a key worker- maybe a nurse, doctor, delivery driver, paramedic, police officer etc. Make it as colourful as possible, thanking them for all their hard work during this difficult time. Ask parents/carers to post it to your local hospital or police station etc to brighten someone’s day and let them know we appreciate them.
Activity 2 - Art
Design a rainbow for the window of your house. Rainbows are being displayed across the country for children to count when they go on their daily exercise. If you already have a rainbow in your window, design a bear so people can go on a bear hunt. Be creative, you could use crayons, paints, felts, wool, flower leaves, painted pasta, etc.
Activity 3 - Topic
Use some of your recycling products to create a 3D model of a volcano. For example; boxes, cans, bottles etc. If you want to be really creative, you could use paint and crafts to decorate the volcano. Send your pictures through to your teachers- we would love to see them.
Activity 4 - Science
Go on a ‘States of Matter’ hunt around your home (and your garden if you have one!)
Using the table provided, make a list of all the solids, liquids and gases you can see. Some will be more obvious than others! Remember – just because you can’t see it, it doesn’t mean it’s not there!
Can you write down three reversible processes? E.g. ice → water
Activity 5 - ICT
