Challenge 1 - Mark-Making.
Can you practise drawing top to bottom (vertical), and left to right (horizontal) lines?
You could draw these with felt-tips or crayons, you could use paint or chalks, you could find a stick and draw in the mud, or with your finger in a tray or dish of salt or sugar....
Now you have practised, can you join a vertical line, then a horizontal line to form the letter
What other capital letters can you write by joining vertical and horizontal lines?

Challenge 2-Funky Fingers!
Ask your grown-ups if you could please borrow a colander.
Do you know what a colander is? What is it used for?
Can you find lots of different things around your house and garden that you can thread and push through the holes- rubber bands, pipe cleaners, string, wool, leaves, sticks, spaghetti...!!
Challenge 3 - Movement!
Have you discovered the 'Cosmic Yoga' you tube videos?
Each session lasts between 20 and 30 minutes, and encourages children to explore various yoga poses by linking all the movements to a story or well-known children's characters e.g. The Gruffalo, The Three Little Pigs, Minions, Trolls, Moana, Frozen...
There are also shorter videos to encourage 'Brain Breaks' and 'Relaxation for Kids'
Here is a link to a session based on the children's TV programme
'Down on the Farm'
Have a go, and let us know if the children enjoy it!!
