Hide one of your toys in the house or garden somewhere. Draw a Mao and write some clues for someone to follow to find it!
Joe Wicks has been doing workouts every morning. Join in tomorrow morning and then come up with your own exercise video. Think about what muscles you want to work and the different ways to get your blood pumping. Write down what people have to do, you could even include drawings. Why don't you film your fitness video and send it to your friends to try!
Draw a map of your house. Give as much detail as possible. Draw out each room and make sure the right room is connected to it. Don't forget hallways too. Make a key at the bottom and put in any drawing to explain what they are. Ask a family member to find each thing on the key on your map. Can they then use the map to find it in the house?
Create your own watering can using a milk bottle. Ask an adult to poke a few holes in the lid. Cut and stick different pictures onto the outside of the bottle. Fill it with water and water your plants.

Remember when we had the ducks in school and we looked at their life-cycle? Well now lots of little tadpoles (baby frogs) are hatching! Research the life-cycle of a frog and get inventive with how to present your findings.

Today we are going to do some geography. On you walk today I want you to make a list of everything that you see that is man-made (remember someone had to make it or build it). See if you can get more than me. I went for a walk in the woods and there wasn't too much around. I found a fence, a gate, telephone pole, path, farm house, houses and a bridge.
Today is Victory in Europe Day or VE Day for short. We are celebrating the 75th anniversary of the end of World War Two in 1945.
Make your own VE Day bunting and/ or flags, just like the ones in the photographs- what messages would you put on it for this year?
Today you are going to write messages in your own code! You will need to make your own alphabet using fingerprint pictures (see the picture below). Write a message to your family member or friend. Can they work out what it says?
