Home Challenges for a Chilly Wednesday
Feel free to record your challenges in your Home Learning Journals if you have not yet handed them in.
I hope you have a wonderful day - stay warm and have fun!
So far, we have met Mary, Joseph, the donkey and Caesar. These important characters have set the scene for our nativity story and we have learnt where the story begins and why a journey has to happen. This week we met Caesar Augustus, who ruled that we must walk to the place of our birth, be registered and counted, which leads us to your first challenge:
Census: As ruler of your bedroom/playroom land I would like you to call a census and register groups of your toys.
Photos of your groups would be brilliant and if an adult could film you registering and counting that would be even more fabulous!
Innkeeper: Today in English we were due to be meeting our next character. So, on to your second challenge:
What is an Innkeeper?
What makes them an important character in the Christmas story?
I would like you to do a little bit of investigation… Can you find out what job an innkeeper would have done at the time of Jesus’ birth. Why did they matter so much to the story?
Finally, if you haven’t already completed our Home Learning challenge from last week, now is the perfect time! If you already created a shelter inside but fancy braving the outside world, let’s go for it :) Here it is again in case you don’t have your journal at home with you:
We would like you to build some form of shelter and read a story inside it. Your story shelter could be outside in the garden, deep in the woods, or even tucked up under a blanket between two chairs in your living room. The environment doesn’t matter; let your imagination run wild wherever you find yourself. The more extreme the better! Please take lots of photos or you could even ask an adult to film a video of your story time session and email it over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
