This week would normally be half-term so Mr James has chosen some fun activities which mean you can also make the most of the lovely weather!
Drawing my own shadow - all you need is a piece of chalk and a sunny day! See the document attached below...
Puppet show - use some socks or other material on sticks to make some of your own puppets. Create your own story and let your puppets act out the story. You could put on a show for the rest of your family or, better still, ask them to join in and help you!
A-Z scavenger hunt - this could be in your garden, on a walk with your family or even just in your bedroom/kitchen etc. Look around and find an object that starts with the letter A, then one that starts with B, then C, then D and so on...!
Savoury bake - I know lots of you have been baking cookies, cupcakes etc at home. Now look for a recipe for something that isn't sweet - it could still be something delicious like cheese scones or a pasta bake. Send us a photo, write a blog post about it!
Football skills - have a go at the skills activity I sent by e-mail on Thurs 21st May (via Mrs Short). Everyone could try some of these and you can show us your skills when we see you You could even ask your parents to put a video clip on our Twitter page @BPSSwans
