500 Words: Black Lives Matter

Angellica Bell and Michael Underwood launch 500 Words: Black Lives ...

You may have heard of the 500 Words competition, which is the world’s largest story-writing competition for children. Since 2011, over a million stories have been submitted. Now, the organisers want to hear children’s voices about the themes and issues emerging from the Black Lives Matter movement by writing a story. From 6:30am today until Friday 3 July 2020 at 11:59pm, they are inviting children to respond in no more than 500 words. Use your experiences and feelings to create a story. They have a clear message: your words have the power to change you and the world around you. Find out more by exploring the website where you’ll find lots of inspiration and tips for writing an effective story:

Chris Evans has launched the competition today alongside Angellica Bell and Michael Underwood. Tune into Virgin Radio Breakfast Show from today to keep up with the competition.

Children’s Art Week

This week marks the start of Children’s Art Week 2020. It is run by Engage (the National Association for Gallery Education) and this year it will run for three weeks from 29 June to 19 July 2020. Each week has a different theme. This week’s theme is: The Natural World.

This week we would like you to become artists and enjoy being creative. Use this week’s theme as inspiration and interpret it in your own way to create a unique piece of art.

Andy Goldsworthy is an artist who creates artwork in natural landscapes using natural materials. Watch the video below to find out more. You could create your own artwork using natural materials!

With the return of the Premier League, many of you may have been enjoying watching football on television again. It’s a little different as the stadiums are empty. As it’s Art Week, we would like to challenge you to design a new kit for your favourite team. This can include socks, boots and even a new ball! Maybe Saints would look better playing in red and white spots instead of stripes? It’s time for you to get creative! Attached at the bottom of this page is a template, which you may wish to use. Alternatively, just draw your designs on a piece of paper. When creating your new kit, don’t forget to add some sponsors for your team. Think about where you’ll add logos. You might also want to create a flag to support your chosen team. Have fun designing!

The Mayflower

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the sailing of The Mayflower. The Mayflower set off for the ‘New World’ from Southampton in 1620. This week, we’d like you to discover what you can about this event. At the bottom of this page, you’ll find an activity pack to help you. You can learn about the Mayflower passengers, their perilous journey across the Atlantic Ocean and the Native Americans they met when they arrived in America. You can work through the pack in any order. There’s lots of fun activities for you to complete, including creating your own community rules and designing a Wampum belt.

The Mayflower was an important world changing event which has had both positive and negative impact. The 400th anniversary provides a moment to reflect upon this history. Mayflower 400 is an opportunity to celebrate Southampton and find out about our city’s story. Find out more by exploring these links:
