10th June #30DaysWild - Challenge 10 🦋💧

Date: 10th Jun 2020 @ 9:12am

Hello Wild Things!

Today is all about being blue. NOT feeling blue (that means feeling sad) but looking for blue in the wild. Can you take photos or draw all of the blue things you see outdoors today?

Enjoy your wonders of the wild outdoors today

From Mrs Ganner

Send photos into my home learning email please:


Photos of past challenges:

Our latest ‘Wonderful Wildlife Wardens’ have sent in photos of themselves throwing their litter away, bird spotting and using their art skills to create very realistic representations of wildlife. I’m really impressed with what they are discovering in their wild outdoors. Thank you for joining in.

By the way – so far The Foundation Stage are wildest of our school (FIST PUMPS AIR!) They’re wilder than KS2 who are wilder than KS1.

Challenge on for those of you who haven’t sent in photos yet…

9th June 30 Days Wild - Challenge 9

Good morning,

Today sees a challenge that we should do every day. Litter is a big problem for wildlife. It can hurt them and so I’d like to see if you can pick up litter to make your area tidy and safe for the animals that live close to us.

  • DO NOT pick up anything that could hurt you.
  • ALWAYS do this activity with an adult.
  • WEAR protective gloves if you have any.
  • USE a litter picker if you can.

Send me your litter picking photos in to: 

Have a great day

From Mrs Ganner

Daily Update:

We’ve had some amazing photos in from children in the Foundation Stage. Look at how happy they are looking after the wildlife they have found. They are being really careful too. Read what they say about their learning:

‘We have been out in the parks and garden looking for wild life. We saw some ducks with babies and a spider in the garden. We also have 3 snails which we look after and feed them every day.’ 

‘This is my friend the worm. I have been watering it and feeding it. Worms don't have any legs because they wiggle.

You really are ‘Wonderful Wildlife Wardens’

Good morning Ravensbury,

I hope your weekend was wild and wonderful. If you have an photos of you and your family finding wildlife in your garden, on the vale or at the park send your photos in so we can share them on our blog.

It’s the start of our second week going wild at school and we have one of my favourite activities

I love to sit in my garden recording the birds talking to each other first thing in the morning. They have so much to say to each other!

Can you hear the magpie chattering away loudly? 

Have a great day

30 Days Wild - Weekend Challenges 🐞🐛🐝🕷

Date: 5th Jun 2020 @ 3:02pm

Well done to Honour and Jola for finding this fabulous centipede! It’s safely back outside now. Well done for ‘Going Wild’!

If any of you want a wild weekend then here are two more challenges:

Challenge 1: How do I know it’s a centipede and not a millipede? CLUE: The answer is NOT to do with the number of legs it has. 

Challenge 2: Bugs shouldn’t be living in your house so why not make them a hotel in your garden? Stack wood and tubes and crates to make a bug hotel this weekend. Then watch them set up home in all the nooks and crannies. Bugtastic! 

Send your answers to my home learning address: 

Have a brilliant weekend! Keep those eyes peeled for lots of bugs
