Home Learning Information
Welcome back everyone! How was your half term? Did any of you do something different or go to a new place on your bicycles? Anybody camp out? Did you bump into any of your friends in the woods last week? I was in my garden trying to get rid of the weeds! But we also managed to have a few BBQ's too! Have an enjoyable week .
Interesting fact for the day:
Otters sleep holding hands so that they do not float away from each other whilst sleeping.
Our Literacy topic is a two week topic using information texts on nocturnal animals. This is going to be based around the story 'Owl Babies,' many of you may have read this story before. This week we are going to focus on the story and researching nocturnal animals. Find the sequence of lessons here
