Daily Challenges: Tuesday 28th April

It's a terrific Tuesday Team Barnes! 

IT’S TUESDAY Team Barnes,

I am loving all of your updates on the Padlet and emails. Remember if it doesn’t work out, stop and try again another time. Sometimes a cuddle and film is just as beneficial as the work J

You may also have seen that RAPS have put up angel wings outside the school for all the key workers which was created by some of the children in school on Monday. If you go past on your daily walk, feel free to take a photo in between it and send it to us!


Counting: Can you count how many hops you can do in 10 seconds? 

Challenge: Can you collect an even amount of objects (lego blocks, pens, books...) Now can you share the objects between two people (toy figures, people in your household). Collect the objects back in and this time can you share the objects EQUALLY. What does it mean if something is shared equally? Both people/parts have the same amount.  Make sure we use the technique one for me one for you and repeat until you have ran out of objects.

Extension: Can you share between four groups or even 3 groups? (make sure you pick a number that can be shared equally e.g. 12 shared between 3 groups is 4. Make sure we use the technique one for me one for you, one for you (around to each group) and repeat until you have ran out of objects.

Theme: Art

Eric Carle. What can you find out about Eric Carle and his style of art?  

Main: Eric Carle is a famous illustrator and writer known for his books such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar and the tiny seed. He uses collage to create his illustrations. What does illustrator mean?  

Collage art is created by cutting different pieces of paper into different shapes and creating a picture out of it. 

Challenge: Can you create a collage butterfly. Remember that butterflies are symmetrical which means they are the same on both sides. A technique that Eric uses is painting a sheet of paper with a pattern on. then when it is dry cutting shapes out of it to form a butterfly.
