I usually do STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) activities for enrichment with y3-6 (if your child has come home recently with some sort of spaghetti or newspaper contraption it's my doing apologies). I'll post one a week for you to have a go at if you wish - something a little different to a screen.
If you do have a go at anything, I would love to see photos!

What you need: twigs, flowers, string, elastic bands.
1. Make squares with sticks and elastic bands .
2. Bind them together to make a cube.
3. Decorate with flowers or leaves or whatever they want.
There is so much scope with this activity. You can vary the 3D shapes made with sticks - they could try a square based pyramid, triangular prism or maybe even something like a pentagonal prism if feeling ambitious!
Science experiment - Volcano
Y5 and 6 like this one - mainly because it makes a mess!!
