Art/DT Family Challenge

Theme (History and Geography)


Your family challenge is to create a portrait with your child of your child’s favourite hero or villain. You can choose between…

  • Florence Nightingale
  • Blackbeard
  • Dick Turpin
  • Any medal winning Olympian or Paralympian
  • Any service animal

You can choose to paint, draw or sketch your portrait.

Can you child remember how to draw the features of a face correctly?


Create a Fact file.

Can you help your child to research a famous Olympian or Paralympian? What information can you find out? Where were they born? Where did they live? Which sport are they famous for?


Your facts can be presented however you choose – some ideas could be drawings of your chosen hero/villain, a fact file or a poster.










Write your own letter.

Could you write a letter to your favourite hero or villain? Maybe you could ask them how they became a hero/villain. If you are writing to a villain could you use persuasive language to encourage them to change their ways?

You don’t have to write your letter – you could film yourself or create a poster for them.








We are learning about ‘Healthy Me’ in PSHE. Could you design a poster encouraging others to be healthy? What would you need to include on you poster?

Healthy breakfasts are very important. Can you create some healthy breakfast ideas together? The NHS’s Change4Life website is a great website to get ideas from!

This half term in maths we will be looking at space, shape and measure. Can you spot any 3D shapes around your home? What are they called? Can you create some 3D shapes at home using dry spaghetti?


Here are some number bond games that your child can play at home:

Number bonds to 10:

Number bonds to 20:



We shall be continuing to learn about ‘Animals and Humans’. Do you or anyone you know have a pet? At home you could write some instructions about how you care for your pet (if you don’t have a pet you could create instructions for an imaginary pet).
