Suckley School

Happy, Aspirational and Ready for Life


Tuesday, 31st March 2020
After the shout out national applause for NHS/care workers, our team decided to set a whole school activity for this week! The challenge is to design a thank flower/ bunch of flowers for the key workers, which may or may not incorporate the rainbow which is also an emblem being used. It can be carried out in any medium, then photographed  or sent to the FB page or to our emails so that we can uplift our web page with them!

Practise your grammar and writing skills.

Write a book review about "A Bridge on Fire"  or your own choice of book. 

Time to exercise

Create and modify a dance to your favourite music using the theme ‘animals’. 


For example: You could be a cat looking after her kittens or the cat in ' Way Home' or a cat similar to one in Cats - a famous musical.  


Watch a video clip of “Cats” and become a cat.   (Cats is a sung-through musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber based on the 1939 poetry collection Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot.)


Put on your favourite music and dance like an animal for 10 minutes. 

Offer family rewards for joining in.  (Keep a camera handy to capture someone smiling!)   

Take a break and drink some water.
