Today's challenge



Today's words are seize and conceit.  Copy them carefully and make sure you know what they mean.  Then practise spelling them and put each word into a sentence.



What could you use to make an insulating layer for a cup to keep your drink hot or cold when you’re camping? How could you test to find the best material for this?


Maybe try testing to see how long it takes for an ice cube in a cup to melt? And trying different materials to insulate the cup.



What are your star qualities?  Choose 5 adjectives from the list above which describe you well and think of an example of something you have done or experienced to prove your point.

Then ask a member of your family to choose 5 adjectives that describe you and see if they agree!
