Heathwood Lower School

Monthly Challenge

Here we are again, back from half term and about to start another half term; doesn’t time fly.  Challenges this month have been enjoyed by lots of children and its excellent to see some new children having a go, well done!  Don’t forget that the children can earn house points for themselves by setting a new challenge for the school.    

Our three star challenger this month is Bella (Class 3)  A very well done to her for completing all three challenges.  I do also have to say a very well done to some of our younger children who obviously really enjoyed the collage challenge; we have had some very impressive seaside scenes!


  • Research challenge: Why and when do the clocks change (go back or go forwards)?  
  • Samuel’s Science challenge: Can you create a volcano eruption at home, using cupboard ingredients?  Ask someone to take a photograph of you and your volcano eruption and send it in to me.
  • Creative challenge: Make your own sculpture using recycled cardboard building shapes which link together.


Have a super time challenging yourself and enjoy this half term.
