30 Day No Electronics Challenge
Although electrical devices can be great, try to avoid using them too much. You could try the 30 Day No Electronics Challenge for a few hours each day instead. Good luck!
Using the sock puppets, act out part of the story. It could be the beginning, middle or ending. Alternatively, write a different ending and act it out. Don't forget to add pictures or video onto our blog. Enjoy!
Grab some materials from https://www.learning4kids.net/2011/09/26/sock-puppets/ to create your own sock puppets for each of the characters in your book.
I am sure that you are doing lots of reading whilst in your classrooms at home. Once you have finished your next fiction book, complete a book review. You can use a template at the top of this page.
Do some planting with an adult. It could be with the seeds that you saved yesterday. If you did not have any, you could get some from some types of fruit that you eat like apples.
Day 26 (11.5.20)
Plan a meal with an adult today. It could be your breakfast, lunch or dinner. With an adult's help, cook the meal and enjoy it! :) Keep any of the parts that you have left over from the picture below for day 27's challenge.
Throw a party at home or in the garden to celebrate the anniversary of VE day :)

The 75th anniversary of VE Day is this Friday so let's get ready to celebrate! Create your own red, white & blue bunting. There is a great free bunting template which you can download here.

Grab a drink, snuggle up with someone in your house and catch up on the news...
I know it is hard to believe... but try this :)
With the rest of your family, take part in a minute's silence at 11am to remember all of the people working hard to keep us safe at this time.
Day 16 (27.4.20)
Think about existing games that you can play at home and at school - football, basketball, cricket etc. Think about and design your own game using the best parts of these games that you can already play. You can make up the rules for it! You and the people in your home could then play the game together. Have fun!
Choose somebody who you would like to write a letter to. It could be someone who you have not seen in a while or it could be someone who is being asked to stay inside over the next few months. Mr Wade is going to write a letter to his great auntie Lil.
As part of your daily exercise, go on a walk with a member of your family. When you return home, draw a map of your local area and highlight interesting landmarks.
Junk modelling! Collect and recycle materials such as yogurt pots, kitchen rolls and boxes and see what you can create with them.
Get musical! Write a song or rap about your favourite subject at school. You can perform it once we are back at school!
With an adult, design and make an obstacle course at home or in the garden. Ask an adult to time you. How fast can you complete it?

Create your own pictures and messages of hope to decorate your windows and brighten up our streets.
How many good deeds can you do for the people that you live with today? Can you pay them a compliment? Can you make them something? Maybe you could help them with some chores around the house. Afterwards, make a list of the good deeds you did and upload it onto our Purple Mash blog.
Use an old sock to create a puppet. Can you put on a puppet show for someone who you live with?
Gather some coins and use them to build a bridge. How tall, wide and strong can you make it? How many different types of bridges can you make? Remember to wash your hands thoroughly once you have finished using the coins. Good luck!
Design your very own reading den! Don't forget to label the different parts. Afterwards, build it and snuggle up and read your favourite book inside!
Thank a hero! Think of someone that helps you or your community. It could be a nurse, doctor, teacher, police officer, refuge collector, religious leader or anyone else that comes to mind. Write them a short letter or make a card to thank them for their hard work during this time.
IF your parents/carers let you stay up to 8pm tonight, join many other people around the country who will be clapping for carers. Ask an adult to google it with you to find out more...
Create a beautiful rainbow on paper in any way that you wish. You could use paint, pencils, crayons... anything!

Check out their rainbows above!
Start a nature diary. Look out of the window each day and keep note of what you see. Birds, flowers, changes in the weather, what else?
