Art Week Day 2

Andy Warhol was famous for exploring every day and familiar objects in his work, using brands such as Coco-Cola and Campbell’s Soup. He liked the idea of taking ordinary things, for example cereal or bananas, and turning them into art. He did this with his famous print of a tomato soup can.

 

 

Have a go at designing your own. It can be a real soup flavour or an imaginary one!

Friday 26th June: Daily Challenges

You have two challenges today. The first is the egg and spoon challenge and the second is the tea towel hurdles!

Challenge 1: Egg and Spoon

Do you remember doing the egg and spoon race at Sports Day?! For this, you will need a steady hand and plenty of focus.

You will also need:

  • some spoons – these can be of a size of your choice. Younger children may want to use a tennis racket
  • an egg, potato or ball! Younger children could alternatively use a bean bag or a soft toy
  • two markers placed 3m apart, or further if you want a greater challenge!
  • a stopwatch or timer

How many ‘shuttles’ can you do in 30 seconds? Keep trying to beat your personal best!

Challenge 2: Tea Towel Hurdles

For our second challenge, you will need some outdoor space and four tea towels or towels to jump over. How many ‘shuttles’ can you do in 30 seconds? If you want to make it harder for yourself, add more tea towels!

Thursday 25th June – Daily Challenge: sock olympics!

Today you are challenged to come up with as many amazing sports skills that use a balled up pair of socks as possible! You might want to find a pair of football socks or some walking socks as heavier socks are a bit easier to manage.

You could:
– see how many ‘keepy uppies’ you can do with the socks
– practice your throwing and catching skills – go out in the garden and see how high you can throw and still catch them
– target shots – make a target for you to aim for. This could be a bin, bucket, hoop on the ground – be as creative as you can.

Wednesday 24th June – Your Daily Challenge: The Ping-Pong Pan Challenge

I have been really looking forward to today’s challenges! They are going to take a lot of perseverance (today’s theme for Sports week) but I think we will all have lots of fun completing the challenges.

Challenge 1: THE PING-PONG PAN CHALLENGE

This mother and son made an amazing ping-pong ball trick shot challenge. This has inspired lots of other families around the world to try and create a similar trick shot. How many different surfaces can you get your ping pong ball to bounce off? Please send us a video of your trick shots!

Alternative challenge (if you haven’t got a ping-pong ball):
Play ‘The Duster Dodge’. This is a great game that you can play with a duster or tea towel.
