Welcome Woodpeckers, Kingfishers and Puffins


Can you take on the challenge? 


Each week, we will set a Maths, English, Phonics and a foundation subject task plus 5 daily activities, linking to a theme. They may need you to make something, find out facts and answers or discuss lots of different topics. We hope you have fun exploring, investigating and trying something new.



Summer Term

Week 16 13/07/20

Maths challenge-


This week for maths we would like you to work with a partner to play a number guessing game. One of you writes down a number between 1 and 100 and hides it from the other person. That person then has to guess what number the person has written by asking questions. The questions can only be answered with a yes or a no. 


Here are some example questions that you could ask.


Is it an even number? Is it an odd number?


Does the number have units? Does the number have ... tens?


Is the number greater than ....? Is the number less than...?


You could challenge yourself by writing a three digit number. You could give your partner a clue by drawing the tens (chips) and units (peas) if they are finding it tricky. 


Take it in turns!

English challenge-


Look at the picture below, can you write as much as you can about the picture?

Remember everything you have learnt this year like: 


Capital letters

Full stops



Sentence openers


Interesting vocabulary


See if you can finish the school year with a super piece of writing!



Phonics challenge -


This week for phonics, we want you to write some silly questions. Choose a phoneme or common exception word and then write a question using a word that contains that phoneme or common exception word. Challenge someone in your house to answer your question. Can they also write you a question for you to answer?
