It is VERY important that you are staying safe when you are using the internet. If you see something that upsets you or you know is wrong, you MUST tell an adult immediately! Please remember that you must always have an adult in the room with you when you are using the internet and you should never, ever go on the internet in your bedroom if you are alone!!!

BE SMART AND STAY SAFE!

CHALLENGE DAY

There will be no live lessons today.

Your Challenge

Today I would like you to create a scarecrow. As we continue to read The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter you will find out why.

I would like you to use your imagination to design and then create a scarecrow, ready to share with the rest of the class tomorrow morning. You have the whole day to complete this so please take your time and do your very best.
 
Some options include:
• creating a scarecrow in the garden
• using a cardboard box to create a garden scene then adding a scarecrow made from sticks (the children in school will be doing this using objects we will collect from the school field and we will be linking it to our materials work in science)
• creating a scarecrow using plant pots
• creating a scarecrow using fabric and a wooden spoon
• drawing around your child's body then using fabric etc to decorate the scarecrow
• using Lego or other building blocks to create a scarecrow then decorating
• baking a cake then decorating it in the shape of a scarecrow's face
• using clay to sculpt a scarecrow
• creating a scarecrow hand puppet
• or something else!

It is up to you. Try to be as creative as you possibly can be.

 

It would be lovely to have all of you on the live sessions tomorrow so that you can share your creations. Please try your best to joins us for these sessions.

I can't wait to see what you create!
