WEEKLY CHALLENGES 

Updated 6th July 2020

Dear Parents,

If your child has completed the work set by the teacher and is looking for something else to try, have a look below at some of the links, activities and further learning. You can try them all or one or two that you like the look of.  Adults can then send us a photo of the work you've done via email or on Twitter - remember children must be 13 or over to have a Twitter account of their own.  

I'll be updating  weekly so look out for new challenges.  If you need any further home learning support, please email me at f.hilton@redhill.bham.sch.uk . Parents can also contact me on Twitter @redhillprimary1. 

Mrs Hilton :)
