Y5 and Y6 challenge: Miss Waugh would like to ‘connect’ you all in a challenge. Are you up for it?

The challenge is to ‘pass’ an object from one person to another through a series of video clips, which Miss Waugh will put together so you all connect. You need someone to video your part.

The ‘object’ is a toilet roll and you need to receive it from the left hand screen of your video clip, then pass it out of the right hand side of your video screen.

You could ‘receive it’ by someone off camera throwing it to you/pushing it to you on a skateboard/ sliding it down a ramp to reach you/ a pet bringing it to you -use your imagination. When it gets to you, you could juggle with it/dance with it/ do football uppies/ sing to it or just pass it on if you want to!

Email your video clip to Miss Waugh using the email address above.

Summer term’s topic is ‘Greece Lightning-The Ancient Greeks’ so if you are keen do do some research, go for it! You could make a project book all about the Ancient Greeks to impress us with when we return to school!
