Can you earn 10 saves this half term?
Maths - Comparing and ordering height and length.
Think of something in your house or outside that can be compared and ordered by height or length.
Can you think of something really unusual? e.g. the length of everyones hand in your family.
Think about how you could present this in the most creative way.
Literacy - Yellow animal factfile
Choose a yellow animal and create a factfile. Your factfile needs to include an image plus at least 3 written facts. This can be as creative as you like.
REMEMBER I am looking for children who try their best to write their facts. This might be simple sentences or key words.
Science - Winter
As we move through the seasons, our environment is always changing. The children spent a long time before Christmas looking at the signs of Autumn, especially when we visited Reaseheath College.
The challenge is to create a representation of Winter with information about how our environment has changed and what the signs of winter are.
RE - Getting to know Jesus
This half term we have been exploring some of the important things Jesus did, e.g. choosing his friends, healing the sick and helping others.
Can you think of a word to describe Jesus (e.g. friend, helper, kind…) and create a piece of artwork around this.
Passport to the World - Iceland

Please remember to read every night with your child(ren).
Even if your child is not reading fluently yet, it is important that you dedicate 10 minutes each evening to sit down and read their school book with them.
This might include asking questions about the front cover, talking about the pictures, making predications about what might happen next and modelling how to follow the words whilst reading.
