EYFS & KS1 Challenges

Mrs Haire's Challenges


Chalk Ice Painting.

Have a go at painting with chalk ice. Follow the link below which shows you how to make it. Have fun!

Scrumptious Strawberry Ice Lollies
Why not make your own delicious fruit ice lollies?! 

 I've chosen strawberries but you can use any fruit you like.


Follow the instructions below to make them; 

1. First puree your fruit either in your blender, with a fork or by using a potato masher.

2. Then add a little lemonade for extra sweetness.

3. Next pour the strawberry lemonade mixture into your mould.

4. After that, add your lolly sticks and put into  the freezer.

5. Finally, wait four to six hours at least until frozen solid, then you can  enjoy.

Hoopla Hoopla!

Using two tubes and paper plates, create your own hoopla game.
 The tubes have been stuck down onto a paper plate (you might need an adult to help you). The coloured paper plates have had a hole cut into them big enough to fit over the tubes. Each person then takes it in turn to get their hoop over the tube and whoever gets the most hoops over wins!

Miss Hensby's Challenges


Let's Play Shadows.

On a sunny day, ask a grown up to read this poem and you try to do the actions as they say them. Watch and observe what your shadow does.


Let’s make shadows in the sun, I can make my shadow run!

I can make my shadow crouch down small, or reach up very, very tall!

I can make my shadow jump around, or do patterns on the ground!

My shadow is weary, see him creep, slowly curl up and go to sleep!



Blowing Bubbles.

See if you can use different things from around the house to make your very own bubble blower. All you need to do is dip your chosen bubble blowing item into the bubble mixture and blow! 

Creative Ice Cubes.

How many different ice cubes can you make?

Mrs Barker's Challenges


Foamy Fun



You will need; 

- Water

- Washing up liquid or baby bath 

- Food colouring 

- Cornflour

- Hand whisk. 


Mix A table spoon of cornflour with a little water to make a paste and add a colour. Then add two parts water with 1 part washing up liquid and with an electric whisk mix it until it forms stiff peaks like whipped cream. My little boy’s enjoy making the foam as much as they do playing with it once it’s ready.
If the foam starts to dissolve just give it another whisk to bring it back to life.


Colourful Rainbows


Using felt tips, colour a rainbow on each end of a piece of kitchen roll. Then fill two containers with water and put one end in each container and watch your rainbow appear.


Mrs Bennett's Challenges


Guess who?! 

Could you use my idea to create your face or one of your friends or family?



Do you want to make a rainbow?

Miss Ellis' Challenges


Cool kites


See if you can follow the picture instructions below to create your own mini paper kite. I can't wait to see yours! 

To float or not to float? That is the question! 

I challenge you to find a number of different objects from around your house and test whether or not they float. You could use the bath or the sink to test them.

Maybe you could make a prediction about what you think will happen to each object before you test them.

Flower Fun! 

A flower has many different parts. Can you dissect a flower (pull it to pieces), stick the different parts on a piece of paper and label them like the picture below?

Don't forget to send a picture to your class teacher! 

Mrs Swift's Challenges


Summer Scrapbook

Maybe you could make a scrapbook with lots of pictures and writing about what you get up to in the summer holidays.
This would be great to show your new teachers/assistants in September.

Fabulous Fruit Kebabs


You will need:

- Kebab sticks

- Variety of fruit

- Marshmallows

- Melted chocolate and sprinkles to decorate



- Ask a grown up to help you to cut your fruit into small chunks.

Home Movies

What you will need;

- A movie

- Treats (lots of them)

The Swift household did this as a family and it was so much fun!

I hope you have as much fun as we did- don't forget to send lots of photos to your class teacher!
