See what your friends have been doing

As you are emailing in work some of you have mentioned other things you are doing, which is wonderful.

Here we will put some of the good ideas you are sharing. smiley



Why don't you make a box of hopes, dreams and wishes...

Think about all those simple things that you wish that you could do, but aren't able to right now

- visit family and friends, go swimming, play in the park -

write them down on a piece of paper and put them in a box.

Then when we are able to begin to doing 'normal' things again, pull out one of your wishes

and remind yourselves of the simple things that make us happy and begin to hope and dream again.

Isla has created hopscotch in her garden with chalk. It looks like great fun. PE and counting

Why don't you make a time capsule like Ellie and her family

Include a page all about you and your family
Your family could draw aroung their hand
Enjoy colouring in the front cover, make it bright
Ellie and Alex have kindly shared the time capsule template with us. You could print it if you have a printer or use it to create your own.

Hannah's cornflower and water experiment

Still image for this video
Hannah has done a wonderful, but rather messy, experiment using cornflower and water. Here she is standing in it, but you can just use your hands to investigate it!!!
Cornflower and water makes an amazing 'substance', that is sometimes solid, and sometimes liquid... it really is fascinating to experiment with if you are able to.
It is very messy though, so wear old clothes/ an apron... and do it outside if possible!!!
