HOME LEARNING: MATHS, ENGLISH, RAINBOW CHALLENGE (Stilling time)- also keep reading!
Today we have an extra creative challenge for you for your Stilling Time. The Rainbow Challenge!
Lancaster Guardian – ‘Drawings of rainbows have started appearing in the windows of houses across the country. Thousands of children are being encouraged to make the pictures to ‘spread hope’ amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Students across the country are stuck at home after the government ordered the closure of all schools in the UK last week in an effort to stem the spread of coronavirus.’
Families have been creating rainbows for their windows to cheer up passers during the coronavirus pandemic. Can you create a rainbow and place it in your window? You can be as creative as you like with this challenge. You could draw, paint, print, cut and stick… You could check Google Images for ideas or check this news report: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-51988671
If you’d like to link a story to your learning today, then I would recommend ‘Noah’s Ark.’ A rainbow is a symbol of hope.
