Make a Miniature Book

The British Library is encouraging children and families to create miniature books. You can find out more here along with all sorts of other creative ideas.

The library is asking children to share their homemade miniature books with its Twitter account @BL_Learning using the hashtag #DiscoveringChildrensBooks, or send them by email to learning@bl.uk. It will commission an illustrator to create a virtual bookshelf to display the work.

Design A Van For Ocado

Are you good at designing/drawing? Then why not have a go at this competition to design a van for the Ocado online supermarket? Parents will have to submit the design so everyone can get involved. If you're interested the link is below:




  Some fun and educational material that everyone can access from home. This content will be released weekly, each Monday, at 

www.phunkyfoods.co.uk/home-learning/ . The material is open access so no usernames or password are required. 

Each week families can work through the following selection of activities.

  • A fun, theme-based worksheet looking at aspects of healthy eating. They are designed to both inform and to encourage discussion
  • A delicious PhunkyFoods recipe to make together using simple, healthy ingredients
  • Phunky15 creative exercises which can be adapted to create your own classroom and done anywhere around the home
  • Mindful Moment activities with guided instructions to help all the family relax

Activities will follow a different PhunkyFoods theme each week - kicking off with Eat Well. The theme-based worksheets and Mindful Moment activities are differentiated according to age. 

Free Book And Activities Direct From The Author


I hope everyone from Elland CofE Junior and Infant School is keeping well in these uncertain times.

My name is Luke Temple. As a children's author I am passionate about getting children engaged with reading and writing. It is sad that I'm not able to visit schools to do this at the moment.

To help bring a bit of excitement to children's 'home schooling', I have:

  • Made my most popular book, Mutating Mansion, completely free to download.
  • Created an activity pack for KS2, 'Luke Temple's Writing Toolbox'. This contains lots of the tools I use to help make my books really exciting, fun and scary to read. I hope children can use the tools to have a go at their own writing.
  • There is also a competition in the activity pack to win a signed book and a free author visit to their school (there are 3 of these prizes up for grabs). The closing date for the competition is 31st May.

The book and activity pack can be downloaded from www.luketemple.co.uk/toolbox

I hope this will be of some use to Elland CofE Junior and Infant School.

Kind regards,

Luke Temple

Why Not Try This?

Every time you wished you could do something, go somewhere, treat yourself, see someone you love or visit a new place put it inside a jar. When this difficult time has passed this can be your bucket list to look forward too!
You can work through your wishes with your grown-ups and become grateful for even the smallest things in your life. 
Until then enjoy watching your jar grow with all of the magical things you can look forward too!
