Today’s challenge has two parts!
Part 1: is to complete the puzzle attached to this email. You can print it out and stick the men in the correct place or you could draw them if you don’t have a printer.
Part 2: Make your own colourful spinning top. You may want to use some of the materials we have used.
- 10p and cardboard
- Cardboard and a pencil
- CD and a marble
You might even come up with some other ways to make a spinning top – we would love to see this! As an extra challenge you record the time it takes for the spinning top to start and finish and test which one spins the longest.
Don’t forget we are always looking out for our pupil of the week so make sure you send your finished challenges through to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us via our social media pages; Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Have fun!!

Tips for maintaining routines at home
• Try to develop a consistent daily routine i.e. get up at normal school time, have breakfast, lunch and dinner at usual times
• Support your home routines with visuals if possible
• Try to maintain a consistent bed time routine
• Include daily physical activity in accordance with health guides
• Reduce exposure to news, media coverage and social networking sites
• Try not to talk negatively in front of children
• Limit your use of technology
• Make use of structured games and activities e.g. Jenga, connect four, snakes and ladders etc.
• Encourage children to utilise their special interests in a positive way to create project work, art, craft ideas etc.
These may be more appropriate for younger children
