This week many of our athletes would have been travelling to Japan in preparation for the 2020 Olympics, but sadly this year the Games have been postponed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the safety and wellbeing of all competitors, spectators and organisers. So our final challenge of the year is sports related:
How far can you throw a biro?
Can you land a teabag in a cup? - what distance can you achieve this from?
How many bounces on a space hopper can you complete in 1 minute?
How long can you plank for?
What is your best time to walk/run or ride a mile?
How quickly can you run around the block where your house is?
Get out, get active and have fun - it's great for the mind, body and soul!
Enjoy yourself and stay safe.
This weeks theme is laughter.
This week your challenge (whilst staying safe and socially distancing) is to make another person laugh. Maybe you could do this at home, using technology to help you contact your friends and family. Remember something is only funny if you and the recipient (the person watching or listening to you) both find it funny.
Who can you make smile and laugh this week?
This weeks activity is a scavenger hunt.
I want you to find something that is each of these colours from each of these places:
My street where I live
My local park/open space
What sorts of things can you find?
This week I have hit a bit of a bump. Lockdown is really starting to make me feel sad and lonely and I'm doing my best to stay happy and cheerful, but I need your help too. I bet a few of you are also feeling the same or similar and just want to get back together as normal - and that will happen - we just don't know when that will be. So this week I want you to come up with a message you can share with your classmates - decorate it however you like and send a picture of it, or of you holding it to the class email - where I will then upload it to the class page.
Please remember you are not alone, you are thought of, cared for and loved by lots of wonderful people - your family and your friends and your school community.

This week your Wellbeing Challenge is to carry out a good deed at home each day. This could be making mum or dad a cup of tea, helping to prepare the family meal, loading and unloading the dishwasher or doing the washing up, helping with the weekly shop, keeping your bedroom tidy, joining in with a family game or quiz. These small acts of kindness will go a long way to keeping everyone happy and healthy at these stressful times.
What deeds can you complete this week?
This weeks wellbeing Wednesday challenge is for you to choose 3 items from your recycling at home and create a new object / piece of art. You could take an empty jar and design a cover sleeve for it and add some lolly sticks and cardboard flowers to it. You could take empty toilet roll or kitchen roll tubes and create a piece of art or a table tidy. The possibilities are endless. Happy creating. Don't forget to email us photos of your creations.
