LET'S HAVE SOME FUN!
The Book Trust website has got lots of lovely interactive books to read online (or watch with signing), including many children's classics, such as 'Owl Babies' and the 'Hairy Maclary' series. On their pages you can also watch videos, play games, win prizes, test your knowledge in book-themed quizzes, and even learn how to draw some of your favourite characters.:
Confined to the house? In self-isolation? Why not have a go at one of these great indoor scavenger hunts? Can you find everything on the list? Can you make it in to a family competition - who can collect everything the quickest?
And if you are able to get outside safely (following government guidelines of course!), here's a scavenger hunt for the garden:

Oldham Sports Development team will be setting a daily challenge for all the students who are missing out on P.E. lessons over the coming weeks. There will be various activities aimed at keeping students active throughout the lock-down. This is open to all Oldham Children, from 4-16 years old, and will include physical activities, dances and links to other sites/social media.
Children will also be able to see clips/videos from their usual sports coaches.

A Message from Kaizendo Karate
We all know that regular physical activity contributes to good mental health, so while schools are currently closed we are offering three free VIRTUAL karate classes Monday - Friday (at 10am, 2pm & 6pm), and one class on a Saturday morning (at 10am). We run the virtual classes via software called ‘ZOOM’, which is really easy to set up. Our programmes are not 100% physical but our unique "Personal Development" programmes offer a good balance of self-improvement and physical fitness, and we are also actively encouraging parents to join in as well.
So what do potential students need to do?
Either call or send a text message to 07739746 836, or email firstname.lastname@example.org - explain that you would like to access the free, online karate sessions.
Alternatively, you can message us on our Facebook group - Kaizen-Do Karate - and request access to the virtual classes.
Why not try some Yoga while you are at home? It will keep you fit and healthy and help you relax too!:
