Monthly Challenge



Well, this month I have been truly amazed by the children’s responses to the challenges.   There have been some excellent recycled creatures, brilliant research into why leaves fall and some good word searches.  I do have to give a special mention to Marcia and Harriet for completing all three challenges and to Kyle, Connor, Maria and Emma for completing two out of three challenges.  Well Done!

Another month is here ~ please encourage your child/ren to take part in one, or all, of these Challenges for November.  Don’t forget, we would also be delighted if your child would like to set a challenge for next month … please encourage them to come and share their ideas with Mrs Dicocco. 

 This month’s challenges are:

  • Ø Why do we sometimes see the moon in the daytime sky?
  • Ø Design and make your very own leaf picture (could be a whole scene, a leaf person or leaf creature)
  • Ø Make something from Lego using no more than 35 bricks

As usual the challenge is set for a month and entries should be placed on the Challenge display table or in the Challenge Box in the hall by 30th November.  Every child who enters into the Challenge will be awarded a certificate and a small prize from Mrs Dicocco during our celebration assemblies.

 Many thanks and have fun!
