Here are a few fun ideas to help you learn more about your local area. We can’t wait to see what you produce and would love to see the class blogs overflowing with new History knowledge!

For an added challenge, I wonder if you can find where you live on a modern day map and compare the area to a map from another moment in history?

June’s Challenge from the Shropshire Wildlife Trust – 30 Random Acts of Wildness

The Shropshire Wildlife Trust have set a challenge throughout the month of June.  I have made this calendar for you to download/print/follow. This will link with your Outdoor Learning Themed Week (starting Monday 8th June).

Click on the calendar and see how many Acts of Wildness you can complete throughout the month. Random Acts of Wildness

You don’t have to complete them all but maybe challenge yourself as a family to do as many as you can when you are out and about of your walks or even at home in the garden. We would love to see you on your adventures and any of your completed Acts of Wildness, so please post pictures and your activities on your class blogs.

Visit for more ideas, videos, activities and facts for you to use and discover.
