Dear Readers, this week we’re going to do something a bit different. Every day until Christmas Eve we’ll have some questions about winter plants and animals, and all you’ll have to do is to answer the multiple choice underneath the photo.  I will be doing my normal posts as well (though they might be a bit shorter what with Christmas and all…)

What would be easiest for me would be if you’d save up all your answers and then post them in the comments by 5 p.m. on Monday 28th December just to give us all a bit of time. The last questions will be on Christmas Eve (Thursday 24th December ) Answers on Tuesday 29th December.

So, here we go….
