Over a week, every time you are out and about, **tally** how many red kites and squirrels you see. Now **plot the results on a graph**; a different graph for each animal (you can chose which type of graph you would like to record your results on).

**Create a number code** for the alphabet (e.g. a =1 b=2 be a bit more adventurous than this example) write your theme words using this code – can anyone crack your codes?!

Now ask an adult to write some addition, subtraction, multiplication and division sums in this code. Can you **decode** these and then solve them?

Look up the wingspan of a red kite and then look up the wingspan of a larger bird of prey. **Find the difference**.

What is the **average lifespan** of a red kite? What is the average lifespan of a red squirrel? **Record** these in years, then **convert** to months and then days. **Extension:** convert to hours and then minutes.

Since the introduction of grey squirrels, the UK population of red squirrels has dropped from approximately 3.5 million to around 140 000.

– **Record this as a difference**.

-What is 140 000 as a **percentage** to the original 3.5 million figure? **Convert** the percentage to a **fraction** and a **decimal**.
