Research more about Hedgehogs

In English this term we are reading ‘The Hodgeheg’ by Dick King-Smith. Clever hedgehog Max heads out on an adventure to cross the road safely. What more can you find out about hedgehogs?

Areas to research:

-What do hedgehogs eat?

-Where do they like to live?

-What are they like as babies?

-What dangers do hedgehogs face?

Maybe you’ve seen a hedgehog near your home and have a story to tell!

You could make:

A fact-file

A poster

A PowerPoint

Or something completely different!

Make a 3D Egypt Model

We are learning about Ancient Egypt in our Topic lessons this term. We will be finding out lots about how Egyptian people lived and all about their Gods, Kings and Queens.

It would be fantastic to display some of your 3D Models in school.

Ideas for 3D Models could include:

-A pyramid

-A sphinx

-A mummy

-An Egyptian house

Ask an adult to help you with any cutting and sticking!

Write a story of your choice

This is a chance for you to write a story about whatever you choose. You might be inspired by our class book ‘The Hodgeheg’, our art book ‘The Dot’ or something you did in the summer holidays- the choice is yours.

Make sure that you:

-Check your capital letters, full stops and spellings carefully

-Use exciting sentence openers and adjectives

-Plan each sentence before you begin to write it down

I look forward to reading your stories!

Plan and carry out a Science Experiment at home

In Science this term we will be learning all about light. Can you plan, carry out and record the results of your own Science experiment at home?

Here are some ideas to get you started:

-Which objects in your home reflect light? Which don’t? Can you find out why?

-Shine a torch at an object- how is the shadow formed?

- One of these experiments: http://www.optics4kids.org/home/content/classroom-activities/easy/

Make sure you check with an adult before carrying out experiments!

You could make:

An information sheet

A notebook with photos, discoveries and drawings

A poster

Or whatever you choose to present your findings!

I Love Art!

Our topic is Ancient Egypt. Have a look at the art of Ancient Egypt- can you create your own artwork inspired by history?

Egyptian art often featured the Egyptian Gods, Kings and Queens as these were very important to Egyptian people. What is important to you that you could add to your Egyptian picture?

You could create:

-A painting

-A drawing in black and white

-A colouring

-A collage

Enjoy creating your own art!
