Monthly Challenge

Well here we are in another busy month; we have not yet celebrated June’s challenges due to the exciting ‘moving up days’, but we will soon.  Althought not finished, I need to make a special mention to Bonnie, who was very quick with her research around ‘How do fish smell’ and also extended herself to find out about their eyes and sight … you are a super researcher! 


So this challenge will start before the end of term and will continue over the summer, so I hope to see lots of entries … more than ever before (and that’s a challenge in itself!).  The research challenge came about from a question that Phoebe in Class 3 asked me, so a very big well done (and twenty house points) to her. 


  • How is glitter made?
  • How many flags can you name … there are 16 of them and it is linked to the world cup.
  • A creative challenge; Create your own picture that means Summer for you;

this could be a cartoon or real and can be a photograph, picture, painting

or poster.  


Don’t forget to be thinking over the holidays (as well as having fun!) as I would be delighted if the children came up with any type of challenges to set ~ I have been doing this for a year now and would welcome ideas which are directly linked to the children’s interests and enthusiasms, so come and speak to me. 

Have a super break and enjoy the challenges!

Don’t forget, we would be very excited if your child(ren) could set some of the challenges.  All entries are put in the Challenge Box in the Hall. Every child who enters into the challenge will be awarded a Bright Ideas certificate and a small prize by Mrs Dicocco during our celebration assemblies.
