Hedgehogs Home Learning Thursday 30th April 2020

Good morning everyone.

I hope you have had a lovely week so far. Thank you to everyone who has emailed Nikki photos of all the things you have been busy doing. We love to see them!

Your challenge today is to make a ball drop game. You just need a small ball and a cardboard box. This video shows you what one boy made and will give you an idea of what to do. You can try to make your game more complicated by adding walls to make a maze, and perhaps two holes. If you’d like to send us a photo of your finished game that would be brilliant!



Please use a Reading Eggs activity of your choice.
