Home Learning 

Owls: Research Native American totem poles and design your own on art paper provided

Otters: Find 3 different types of rock. Make a detailed drawing of each and describe what they look like. 

 Hedgehogs: Have a go at paying for some shopping using coins or notes and keep the receipt to tell us about it after half term.  You could even keep a diary of coins you have used and any change you got. Draw or make a picture to show how your garden has changed with the cooler weather.  Maybe some of your trees have lost some or all of their leaves....

Ongoing Tasks - Children have been given flashcards of words they need to be able to spell this year and information about maths number facts they need to learn.
