 Friday- Crack the code

Fancy a scavenger hunt? Here are some ready made ideas for you!

Have a read of Back to Earth with a Bump and take some time to have a go at these talk cards!




Remember to give someone a compliment, and yourself, a compliment everyday. Miss Green's compliment to you all is ''Rainforest Camp, you astound us everyday with your home learning efforts, keep up the great work!''



 Draw or paint a time when you felt happy, in the Rainforest.


Write a compliment card for a friend or family member.


Ask what makes someone else in your house happy.

It’s always great to understand those closest to us and to know what makes them happy is great! Maybe, next time you can see that they’re feeling an uncomfortable feeling, you could help to make them feel more comfortable again with your new found knowledge.


Share your favourite joke. Upload it to twitter and give us all a laugh!

Miss Green's favourite joke is...


Play a game of Charades with your family – appreciate the time as a family and enjoy some smiles and laughs together!

Try to remember: your fair play rules; to compliment your team mate; to listen to others; to use the steps for calming down (if needed) and to problem solve: - Stop, Make a plan and Go.
