Today's challenge

Remember, we'll give you the answers tomorrow.




This week we are looking at words which use 'ch' to make a hard 'c' sound.


Copy today's words carefully - scheme, schedule, scholar.


Circle the 'ch' in each word and look carefully at the letters on either side of it.

Make sure you know what each word means, then practise the spellings using your favourite strategy.



 A tent needs to be waterproof.

What materials do you have around the house that could make a waterproof tent?  (It doesn’t need to be life-size!)

Test the materials to see which one keeps out most water and for longest!

How will you make your test fair?



Design a workout that will increase your heart rate. It could include star jumps, running on the spot, lunges, squats or any other activities you choose!

Include 10 activities.


Try your workout yourself and then try to persuade a member of your family to try it with you!  If you both enjoy it, maybe do it every day this week?!
