Children's University

Hours at Home

You have all worked so hard to collect hours towards Children's University awards do not let the current school closure to stop you now! 

I will continue to award hours for activities completed outside of directed tasks set by your teachers - school work will not count


Please remember that the Children's University is about your own directed learning - activities you log must have an objective and learning taking place.

Activities should be supporting you to learn something new or to develop an existing skill. 

University Challenge


Each week I will post a new challenge to boost your hours.



Week 2

🎨 Henri Matisse 🎨

This week I would like you to use the Tate Kids website to find out about the art work of

Henri Matisse.

Then I would like you to have a go at creating your own Matisse inspired artwork. You could cut out coloured papers, colour in plain paper and then cut out, you could even use chalks on the driveway if that's what you have at home! Just have fun and try something new!

To get you started here are some ideas of activities you can complete - we have already tried some of these in my house!

Please try to document your activities, for example, take photographs, videos, make a fact sheet or write a book report.

If using online resources such as YouTube - it is recommended you have an adult present, please remember to stay safe online!


- Gymnastics - if you have space why not practice your gymnastic routines at home or in your garden if it is safe to do so. Is there a particular skill you need to work on?


- Dance - Lots of dance schools are posting videos of dance routines online -

CDA have posted theirs this week! 

If you do not attend dance classes why not try something new, lots of professional dancers are putting dance classes online. 


- Music - do you have an instrument you can practice at home?


- Sports - Is there is a taekwondo or football skill you can practice safely at home?


- Reading - there are so many activities you can complete around reading - write a book report, draw a picture of your favourite part, put on a play with your family members or make puppets of the characters. 


- Science - there are lots of websites that can give you ideas for experiments to do at home. 

*We have planted some seeds at home this week so that we can watch them grow and hopefully have some vegetables at the end!


- Virtual tours - Why not take a trip around a museum or art gallery online?

*Yesterday we took a live trip around a WW2 bunker in Liverpool!
