Christmas Riddle of the Day: How many presents can Father Christmas fit in an empty sack? (Answer at the bottom of the page!)
Christmas Fact of the Day: In Poland, spiders are considered to be symbols of prosperity and goodness at Christmas. In fact, spiders and spider webs are often used as Christmas tree decorations! According to legend, a spider wove baby Jesus a blanket to keep him warm.
Welcome to Day 1 of our Christmas Home Learning. I will be setting English and Maths each day and a few other fun activities to try. Each morning, we can meet together on Zoom at 9.30am to discuss the work that has been set and then I will be available on Zoom again at 2pm to chat to you about the work that you have completed and answer any queries that you may have.
Please email me any work that you are proud of - I would love to see it!
Following on from reading the fabulous story, 'A Christmas Carol' by Charles Dickens, we are going to be writing a formal, persuasive letter from Scrooge to the newspaper, 'The Times of London'. Scrooge is going to insist that Christmas is banned...yes, you heard right, he wants Christmas banned!
Your task today is to draw a spider chart showing the reasons that Scrooge would give to support his mission for Christmas to be scrapped. If you need reminding of the story, I have uploaded a copy of the text to refresh your memory.
