Keeping Active in May
As we enter the new month of May, we have a really fun sports challenge for you to have a go at! Can you complete an active challenge each day in May?
Please see the attached PDF below
We can't wait to see any photos or videos of any challenges that you choose to try! Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs Johnson has had a go at the challenge from 3rd May: ‘Balance on one leg. How many different ways can you think of?' We hope that it gives you some ideas for your own balancing and maybe you can think of some different ones.

Art with Mrs Johnson
PLEASE NOTE - Since making this video we have found out that some people have struggled to remove the chalk paint from their path so please check with your parents first. When Mrs Johnson did it, hers came off fine.
SCIENCE IS FUN!
Professor Brainstorm has visited school several times in recent years, each time dazzling us with his scientific knowledge and exciting science experiments! He has contacted school to share some fabulous scientific exploration that you can try with everyday objects at home. He also explains how and why each experiment works too!
Take a look at his website and have a go yourselves – they are lots of fun!!
Please use the tabs on the right to access lots of fun and fantastic learning activities to add to your brilliant work on Doodle Maths and Doodle English.
