Home Learning 

Owls: Write a poem about summer or sports day – you will have a chance to read it to the class

Otters: Dig up a weed in your garden, or find a picture of a whole plant if you cannot. Draw it and label the parts- flower, stem, leaf, roots. You can also add any other parts you notice! Can you find out the function of each of the parts?

Hedgehogs: Create your own tally.  You could record the different animals that visit your garden, or your family's favourite food.
