J K Rowling's new book

J.K. Rowling released a free new book at the beginning of half term. It is called ‘The Ickabog’.

She would like children to illustrate the book for her. follow the link below to The Ickabog website for more details.

One or two chapters of the book are uploaded daily until July 10th. All the previous chapters are available too - so you can start reading from the beginning.

We would very much like to see your illustrations for this new book. Are there some new drawing skills, which you have developed through Draw with Rob, that you could apply? Pop a picture onto seesaw of your illustrations with a little blurb to explain what you have drawn.

Blue Peter - Six Badges of Summer.

Yellow Week - Music

Did you complete your Red Week badge last week? Did you try a new physical activity?


This week is Yellow Week - linked to music


To earn your Yellow Badge, you need to have a home music festival. You could dress up as a rock star, create a banner for your festival, create a playlist of your favourite lock down music or talk to relatives about their favourite music.


Follow the link to have a look on the website for tips on how you can take part. Using the application link, you will find some inspiration from a video clip and interactive Bring The Noise feature.


If you haven't already, you can download a wall chart  to keep track of your Six Badges of Summer progress.  Let us know what you're doing by uploading your pictures and videos of your creations via Seesaw.


Remember to ask an adult at home to help you apply for your badge once you have met the Yellow Week Challenge.
