This week, I have another brand new, exciting activity for you to complete. I have found a super website, that helps you write your own stories, allows you to get help writing your story from your friends online (if your parents or carers are happy for you to do this) and then gives you the opportunity to publish them in an email. You could email your final story to me, using the usual email address: email@example.com
The website is called Fabled - the link is at the bottom of this section, as you need to know what to do, before you enter the website.
So, let's get started!
When you log in to the website, you will be asked to sign up. Please do this and then your grown up can also create an account, which means that you will be able to work on your story collaboratively with your friends and eventually email your story to me.
Go on, get creative! Your story can be about anything that you want...
This is the website that you need to log on to... https://fabledkids.com/
Another Premier League challenge for you this week – this time it’s all about Data Handling. Start by clicking on the title below, to watch the video
If you have a printer, you can print out the activities, but you don’t have to. All you need to have is a pencil, paper and a ruler. Just click on the first activity below – either to print it out, or do it from the screen.
Can you read the information in the bar charts and answer the questions?
• Quiz A – From the screen – the answers are on the final slide. Write your answers down and no peeking at the answers until you’ve finished!
• Quiz B – To print, if you are able to. The answers are on the last sheet, so don’t look until you’ve finished!
Dakai is scared of heights. Perhaps having a parachute would make him feel safer? What do you need to think about when creating a parachute? What could you test?
• The shape of the parachute (rectangles, squares, circles)
• The size (small or large)
• Materials used for the parachute (plastic carrier bag, fabric, paper etc.)
• Materials used for the parachute threads (string, wool, sewing cotton etc.)
So, can you create a simple parachute that carry a small weight? – you could use a lego toy, or other small item. It doesn’t have to be a huge parachute, but it has GOT to slow down the rate at which the object falls.
I can’t wait to see what you make. Please do send in a photo of your parachute and, if you can, perhaps a short video clip of the parachute in use.
Send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you’ve made it, why don’t you decorate it with hieroglyphics or other patterns? You could try to make a pyramid of a different size, or make one out of different paper. Get creative!
Remember to send in a photo of your finished pyramids!
You might need to complete the alphabet over several walks and then you can decide how to present what you have done. You could simply write each letter next to what you found, or you could draw it… you could split it up into different sections, for what you could see, smell or hear… the choice is yours. As long as you have 26 items recorded, how you do it, doesn’t matter!
Send in your finished alphabet challenge to email@example.com

Hope to see lots of work coming in from you all…
