Dear Dahl class,
Happy Half Term!
We will not be setting any formal home learning this week but would like you to have a relaxing time with your family. Enjoy spending time together and getting outside in the sunshine.
If you would like some ideas of possible activities....
Write a letter to an older relative or family friend.
Enjoy an indoor or garden picnic.
Take part in a garden wildlife survey https://naturehood.uk/get-involved/knowing-your-gardenwildlife.
Create a treasure map for the garden/ house including writing instructions.
Write your own story and turn it into a book complete with illustrations and a front and back cover.
Create a fitness or agility circuit in your garden and get your family to have a go.
Invent a new indoor or garden game to play with your family and write the rules.
Write your own joke book.
Try some planting activities. You could plant some seeds in a flowerpot filled with soil. Make sure to give them some water and put them somewhere sunny.
Design a board game with a Summer theme.
Organise a restaurant in your home. Could you cook a meal or bake something for your family to share? Make a menu to tempt your customers.
Facetime or video call a friend or member of your family that you have not seen this week - get some jokes ready to tell them so you all have a great giggle together. Maybe you could read a story to each other on your call.
Make a den in your house or in the garden using fabric, cushions etc.
Ask your parents if you can use a phone, tablet or camera to take photos when you are next out on a walk or out in the garden.
How many times can you throw and catch a ball or beanbag with a family member without stopping? You could even use a pairs of balled up socks if you don’t have a ball!
Design your own superhero complete with superpowers and costume.
Make musical instruments out of things you can find in the house.
