There is a green challenge available for which is themed around animals in the North and South Pole.

As always there is a set of answers for you to self mark at the end of each pack.

Happy puzzling!!!!!



Details of the English challenge for today can be found in the document below.




Last half term you explored the following website to investigate the importance of maps. You also had opportunity to play on the games link. You also researched about the use of co-ordinates and why the Royal Ordnance Survey came into effect.

Today, we would like you to refresh your mind about the key symbols that are used on Ordnance Survey maps. So revisit the website below.

Please produce a list of the top ten most important symbols that would be needed to help explain the Chelmsford map attached. Make sure to include a title, draw the symbol and explain what it represents.

Challenge - Can you find where our school is located? Where you live? Where your friends or family live?
