We will announce Challenge Superstars on Friday 5th June. Certificates will be sent out in the post. Good luck and enjoy your learning!

  • Make your own telescope to look for sharks just like Timothy Pope.
  • Design your own park? You could make a 3D model using recyclable materials.
  • Research sharks and create a poster or presentation to teach others your interesting shark facts. The more creative the better!
  • Spot the rhyming words in the story? Can you create your own rhyming pairs or phrases?
  • Use your drama skills to perform the story. You could use Purple Mash to record your voice over the story or record a video.
  • Create a warning poster to warn others about sharks being spotted in the park.
  • A newspaper article reporting on the sighting of sharks in a local park.
  • Write a persuasive letter to persuade local residents to avoid the park.
