Where do those badges go?

Week 2

Week 1
  1. Paint, draw or illustrate each of these:
    • a scene from a story
    • a person or object
    • a landscape
  2. Show a selection of your own recent work  ( another 2 or 3 pieces of art work, of a subject of their own choice)

The art work should be the best they can achieve, and not rushed through. We would expect each piece to take about hour to plan and complete. When finished please take photos and email it to me.


Complete four of these activities.
  1. Compose a poem of at least eight lines. Discuss its meaning and construction with an appropriate adult.
  2. Create a short story of around 600 words. Talk about your story idea with an appropriate adult beforehand.
  3. Write a descriptive passage of around 600 words on a subject, agreed with an appropriate adult beforehand.
  4. Write a 600-word review of a favourite book, play or other work of literature and talk about it with an appropriate adult.
  5. Produce a published article of around 600 words in length.

    You could contribute to a school, faith, community or Scout magazine or write a letter to a local paper.

  6. Keep a diary on a subject (e.g. how the virus is affecting their daily life, their pet, their garden) for 2 weeks.
  7. Write a play or dramatic sketch lasting at least 10 minutes.
  8. Write a letter to a pen pal (real or imaginary) of at least 600 words.

Where it says discuss with an appropriate adult , this can be a parent/carer or older sibling. Please email me copies of their finished work.

Extra challenges: 
If not self isolating, walk one of the blue line health walks. How long does it take?
Learn to identify 5 different trees
Learn how to tie a bowline and a reef knot (there are lots of videos on line)
We will suggest an Activity badge or something they can do towards the Challenge badge each week, obviously it is not compulsory. Please don’t work on other badges at home. We normally cover some of the badges as part of our weekly programme and this will be difficult if the children have all completed different badges.
