Family Challenge

History and Geography


Focusing on the maths challenge regarding money and its value, can you set up your own shop using objects from around your house as the items to sell? Remember to label the value of each item, as your family members will be pretending to buy them. Different items have different values and therefore you must be specific with the ‘£’ and ‘p’ that you label.


It is important that as a shop keeper, you give the correct amount of change to your customers. Can you sell all of your items? How much money have you made altogether?

Could you research some realistic prices of the objects using existing shops such as Tesco or Sainsbury’s?


The food that we eat today is extremely different to the food that was eaten during the Tudor Times. What food might Queen Elizabeth 11 eat at a royal banquet today?


Can you create a menu for a banquet hosted by Henry V111 during his reign? You should research the types of food that was eaten during this era and use them within your menu. How does the food eaten by Queen Elizabeth 11 differ from Henry V111?


How can you design your menu to be fit for royalty? Can you make your menu look like it was from the 16th Century?

In English, we have been looking at the story ‘Into the Forest’ by Anthony
Browne. This incorporates a range of different fairytale stories into one.


We have really enjoyed identifying the hidden characters within the story, spotting hints regarding the fairytales in which they originate from. These have included ‘Little Red Riding Hood’,

‘Hansel and Gretel’, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’.


We are asking that you create your own story including aspects from different books that you have read to make an exciting new story. Think about the scenes, setting and journey within your story and remember to perfectly punctuate. 




In Art, we have been looking at the style of Pop-Art and its artists, including Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Can you remember the features of Pop-Art?


Roy Lichtenstein created his pieces using a series of dots and onomatopoeia, whereas Warhol sequenced a single picture to form a repeated pattern. Can you combine the two styles to create a comic strip about a famous fairy-tale that you are familiar with? For example, ‘Cinderella’.

What colours might you use? Which colours match the Pop-Art style? How much writing might you include?


Counting is an important aspect of everyday life and a skill in which you will need in the future.


It is essential that children recognise the value of money and recognise the currency used in the UK.

In Year 3 we have covered adding and subtracting money, focusing on the change given from an amount.

Can you research different currencies from around the world and compare the value of them to the UK? Do other countries have influential people featured on the coins/notes? Do you have any coins/notes from different countries at your house? Can you draw a picture to show what the coin/note looks like?


In science this term we have been learning about rocks.  Can you remember the three different types of rock? Can you find some rocks in your neighbourhood and identify which rock group they belong to?


Andy Goldsworthy is an artist that uses natural objects such as twigs, rock, flowers, leaves and bark to create art on the ground. 

Using what you have found, can you create an art piece inspired by Andy Goldsworthy?
