I absolutely loved all of your postcards you have been writing from all over the world, Devon, Africa, Ibiza, America, absolutely fantastic writing being done!
Today’s challenge is to write a postcard from your dream holiday destination! Think about where you would love to go on holiday, it could be anywhere in the world. What would you do there? What is the weather like? Who would you go with? Maybe research the destination to find out more about it. Draw a picture and write a postcard giving lots of information about your holiday!
I hope you are excited for another week of learning. I will be setting new daily challenges for you and can’t wait to see what you get up to!
We had lots of fun in our house this weekend with Googles 3D animals. If you type in one of the animals on the list into Google, scroll down until you see ‘View in 3D’ then ‘view in your space’ follow the instructions and the animal will appear in your room in 3D!

If you aren’t already, completing a daily diary of what you have done each day is a great way to keep practising your handwriting and phonics, spelling out your words and using capital letters and full stops for your sentences. It will also be something to keep and look back at in years to come.
So impressed by all your boats you have been making today! Massive well done to you all 👏👏👏 Hope you all enjoyed making them and testing them. You are all superstars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Last Challenge of the week! Today’s challenge is to make a boat that will float, it can be made from anything you like, Lego, junk modelling, play dough, absolutely anything you can think of. Make the boat then test it to see if it will float, you could test it in a bucket of water in the garden or in the bath. If it doesn’t float, can you adapt it and change it so it does float! Good luck and have fun!

Todays challenge is to write a letter to a friend who you can’t see at the minute. Tell them what you have been doing and ask them some questions about what they have been doing. You could take a photo of your letter and ask a parent to send it to your friend. They might write a letter back to you!
Thank you and well done to everyone who completed today’s challenge!! Be ready for another one tomorrow!
