- Have a go at designing a treasure hunt. Make clues and think about where you could hide them around your house. Try and make your clues slightly difficult – maybe you could try using some of your English knowledge to conceal the locations?
- Draw your perfect party! Make sure you include all the decorations, food, games and people that you would want there. The more detail and colour, the better.
- Paper airplane competition! Try seeing how far you can throw a paper airplane against other members of your family.
- Design a bag. Think about what it’s made of, what features it has, how many pockets, how big it is. Again, the more detailed your design is, the better it will be.
Collect and store or grow your own tomato seeds. You will need a tomato!
Follow the link to show you how to collect and prepare the tomato seeds.
Once collected you could plant the seeds and/or save some of them for planting next year.
Research how to collect and dry the seeds of other fruit and vegetables. How many different seeds can you collect and prepare? How many different plants can you have a go at growing?
Make a list of your favourite films or shows. Choose a favourite scene to recreate. Make the characters and setting out of paper, card, cardboard, etc., and then act the scene out to your family audience.
Create one or more of these musical instruments. Get members of your family to play an instrument too. Can you recreate a favourite song from the soundtrack of one of your favourite films or shows?
Create a newspaper of your family’s news since you’ve been at home. Think of reports you could write, adverts you could create and interviews you could carry out. It would be lovely if you could show your friends your newspaper when we get back to school.
Research the history of flight. Read (or re-read) the Amelia Earhart reading task. Can you design and make your own flying machine?
