Friendly February - can you complete all the tasks suggested here?

Geography - Create your own rainforest animal and create an interesting fact file about it. How is your animal adapted so it can survive in the rainforest?

PE - On our usual PE day (Wednesday and Thursday), why not visit the PE at Home page and try out some of the exercises?

BBC home learning -  The BBC are broadcasting 3 hours of learning each day for Y3-6 on CBBC between 9 -12. Whilst this doesn't match our learning in school, it would be a useful alternative if you are having trouble accessing the online provision. The programmes are also available through iplayer. 

 

*Due to high demand nationally, some of online resources may be unavailable at certain times.  If you have difficulties, please complete a different piece of home learning - perhaps from another day and try again later.  Thank you.*
