Heathwood Lower School


Monthly Challenge

Here we are again, back from half term and about to start another half term; doesn’t time fly!  Don’t forget that your child/ren can earn Housepoints for themselves by setting a new challenge for the school … get them to write down their ideas for a challenge and send it to me in the normal way.   

Well done to Morgan D, Polly and Amaia (Class 2) and Amy (Class R) for completing both challenges.  Challenges this month have clearly been enjoyed by the children and I have been truly delighted with the photos that have been sent in; lots of creativity and enjoyment clearly evident and there has also been some evidence of trial and error with the construction challenge.  Well done to those who had to make changes and persevered!  Congratulations to Ava L and Carina (Class 2) and William B (Class 1) for their construction challenges, and Leo, Molly and Ilana (Class 3), Sophia D and Violet (Class 2) and Felix (Class R) for their creative decorations for Halloween.  I do also have to give special mention to Finn, Olivia, Freya and Melissa in Pre-School for having a go at the challenges too - a certificate is on its way to you.  

  • Science challenge:  Can you create some fireworks in a jar? You only need three simple ingredients that you will have at home.  Take a photo and send it in to me via office@ or preschool@heathwood.beds.sch.uk   
  • Creative challenge:  Using simple shapes, try to turn them into an animal; look at the examples on the posters in the hall or below.

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