Good morning,

I hope you have all logged into Sumdog and continuing the completion – remember it closes this Thursday and we are in it to beat the year 4 class (in a nice way).

Answers to the Mind-boggling mysteries are:

  1. Denied passage:  It was a toll booth but he didn’t have any money.
  2. Ready for bed: His phone rang.  Although he unplugged his mobile phone charger from the wall, it wasn’t turned off.

I hope you got both of these!

Yesterday we started to look at animal adaptation and how this helps them to survive environments (sometimes extreme environments).  Sunday night on the BBC ‘primates’ was aired – this showed adaptations of various primates across the world.  If you didn’t get a chance to view it and have time to fill I strongly recommend watch it.

Today you will be choosing an animal and researching their adaptations.  It could be one of the animals we looked at yesterday or any one of the species across the world.  I have provided a fact file template to help you.
