Challenge Time - Beat the teacher!


Can you teach Mrs P something she didn't already know? Use an information book, atlas, encyclopaedia, the internet or anything else to learn a real life fact and get your grown up to email it to me e.pyliotis@wherwell.hants.sch.uk . If you teach me a fact I didn't know you can have a Puffin Point (I will keep score of how many Puffin points I have given out so you can have them when we get back) and I will post your fact on this page of the school website! It can be a fact about anything: a country, an animal, transport, whatever you like!


Good Luck!
