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’

8th June 30 Days Wild - Challenge 8 🐤🐦🦉🦆

Date: 8th Jun 2020 @ 9:12am

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 @ 3:16pm

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

June 5th - #30DaysWild – Whole School Challenge 5 🐝🦋🐛🐞🤔📒

Date: 5th Jun 2020 @ 8:02am

Good Morning Ravensbury,

It’s the end of our first wild week. I’ve spoken to a few of your grownups about what they have seen and done this week. Did anybody find a minibeast in their house yesterday? Send in photos of your minibeast encounters so we can put them on the blog. Here’s today’s challenge:

Whatever WILD THINGS you see today write down a list and send a photo of what is in your local park or back yard or garden. Let’s work out what kinds of wildlife are living in and around Clayton.

Send your photos or short videos in and I'll put them up on our school blog

Date: 4th Jun 2020 @ 7:58am

Good Morning Ravensbury,

I hope you managed to get out in the WILD yesterday! Send in your splashing photos so we can share the fun. Here’s today’s challenge:

When it gets cold and wet outside, sometimes the wild likes to come inside! If you find a minibeast friend, help them find their way home by carefully scooping them up and putting them outside.

Send your photos or short videos in and I'll put them up on our school blog

Each day I will put up a wild challenge and you can take a photo of you and your family completing it so I can put it on this blog. 

Here is your challenge for today, see how many wild minibeasts you can find outside:

Wellbeing challenge 1.6.20

Date: 1st Jun 2020 @ 10:57am

Hello and welcome back to the start of our final half term of this school year!

As you know, Mrs Glover has been setting us wellbeing challenges to keep us feeling positive and productive over the last few months. It has been fantastic to look back at all the photos you have sent her showing your creative work!

For the next few weeks, Mrs Glover is lucky enough to be going into school each day to teach as we  start opening up the school to certain year groups, so I'll be setting your wellbeing challenge.

So, here's your challenge for this week:

Can you set yourself an exercise goal for the week and try and do a different  exercise each day? It could be going for a walk with your family, making up a dance , going on a bike ride, jumping on your trampoline, doing an online workout like Joe Wicks or doing 30 star jumps in your kitchen!

Use the chart below to record your exercise each day ( or just write it on a piece of paper if you do not have a printer) and send it in . If you would like to share  a photo during the week ,send it in too and I can post it on the blog for others to be inspired to try your idea !

I can't wait to see who can be an exercise superstar!

Half term wellbeing challenge

Date: 25th May 2020 @ 10:58am

Hello and happy half term!

I'm not going to be posting a daily challenge for you over half term but here is something you can do  if you like. It's a funny time right now and it's one we may want to look back on in the future to remind oursleves what we did, how we felt and how lucky we are when it's all over. So I've attached a time capsule template for you use so that you can record some of these things, either by writing or drawing it's up to you.

You can either print it out, do it on a computer or just draw our each page for yourself. Do as much or as little as you chooe and feel free to share anything you do on

Stay safe,

Mrs Glover

Wellbeing challenge 22.5.20

Date: 22nd May 2020 @ 10:14am

Good morning and happy Friday!

Can you believe we’re coming to the end of another half term? It’s the half term holiday for everyone next week! I’m going to post a challenge for the half term week at the weekend and then I should be back with more challenges from the 1st of June.

Today I’m giving you a fun challenge that has been sent to me by Mrs Ganner which I think is a good way to end Mental Health Week.

We’ve talked a lot in school about resilience and the Power of Yet but I bet you didn’t know that there is actually a Power of Yet dance! So today's challenge is to have a go at the Power of Yet dance. Here are 3 links depending on what your age is, have a go and you can send either photos or videos in of you having a go to There are also some writing tasks that you can download and do on each page if you choose to do so.

5 to 7

7 to 9

9 to 11

Have a lovely half term and stay safe.

Mrs Glover

Past Challenges

As always, thank you so much to everyone who has sent me pictures of your wellbeing challenges. I've been sent a few more fantastic origami hearts and a couple of amazing poems. Here they are!



Wellbeing challenge 21.5.20

Date: 21st May 2020 @ 10:14am

Good morning, I hope you all found some way to enjoy the sunshine yesterday. I sent a lot of time in my garden and I have to admit even though I applied plenty of sun cream, I’m still a little pink! I hope you were all more careful than me.

We’re almost at the end of the week and today is the last kindness based challenge as I have something a little different for tomorrow.

I hope that you have been experiencing some acts of kindness this week as today my challenge is to write a kindness acrostic poem. This is where you use each letter of the word you choose to start a sentence or word.

I’ve attached a file that has a few different kindness words to use for your poem so you can choose one or choose more than one you like! As always if you can’t print then don’t worry, you can write it out on a piece of paper or even type it on a computer like I have.

I have chosen the word caring. Here is my poem.

Cooking for other people

Asking people how they are

Returning peoples phone calls and messages

Interest in what friends and family are up to

Niceness goes a long way!

Going the extra mile for those you love

As always please e-mail your poems to

Mrs Glover

Past challenges

I'm very impressed with all the origami hearts you've all been making, some of you even made both hearts like I did! Here they are along with some other past challenges.



Wellbeing challenge 20.5.20

Date: 20th May 2020 @ 9:53am

Good morning,

Wow what a day! The weather forecast suggests it could get as hot as 26 degrees today! I can’t wait to get out there and enjoy it although I’ll definitely be putting on some sun cream!

Today’s activity is linked to kindness again and involves making a little present for either someone else or yourself. Today‘s challenge is to make an origami heart.

To start with you will need a square piece of paper and it will be easier to follow the instructions if it is decorated or coloured on one side.

Here is a YouTube video telling you how to make a square from an A4 piece of paper.

Then you have a choice of making 2 different hearts, one flat and one 3D. I made both and prefer the flat one and found it a bit easier but it’s up to you which you do.

Here is how to make the flat heart (my first picture)

Here is how to make the 3D inflatable heart (my second picture) (then at the end you have to blow it up using the little hole at the bottom)

I can’t wait to see your hearts! Remember to e-mail them to

Mrs Glover

Past challenges

I've really enjoyed reading about all your kind acts in your hearts from yesterday and I love how some of you are mentioning clap for carers in your kind acts for others! Here are the ones I've been sent:
