Mr Payne is busy updating the school site with activities for your to try over the Easter break.

English

It’s time to get creative! Remember, this is a private writing task and no one is ever going to read your work, unless you would like them to. Now, it’s time to get started. Begin with the words: ‘I remember, I remember, I remember.’ until a thought comes into your head. As soon as it does, write it down!
Continue to write, without stopping, until three minutes have passed. Don’t worry, if you get writer’s block you can go back to writing ‘I remember’ until a new thought comes. Relax, and enjoy

Don't worry if you have completed previous learning instead of this.   
Reading

Read a book to an adult in your house.

If you can, make a note of this in your reading record.

Don't worry if you have completed previous learning instead of this.   

Keeping Active Start your week with an Active 8 workout with Joe Wicks.  If you’d rather, you could make up your own routine of 8 moves with 30 seconds of movement and 30 seconds rest before going on to the next move.   
Other Learning Spread some joy to children going outside on a walk and join in with a nationwide game of eye spy!  Draw and decorate a sun and stick it in your window for others to see as they are out walking.  When you go out for some fresh air, how many can you find?

Story Starter

 Complete this story:

It was the moment they had been waiting for.

Chains had bound their citadel; link after link of brutal, cold steel.

As they poked their heads out of their windows, they drank in the view through eyes squinted against the icy, punishing wind. The world they knew appeared as insignificant specks, hundreds of metres below.

Can you continue the story? Who are ‘they’? Where are they going?

Easter

It will soon be Easter.  Choose one (or more!) of the activities to have a go at.

  • Make some mini egg rocky road bites.
  • Design and make an Easter garden.
  • Create a piece of artwork showing what Easter means to you. This could be drawing/painting, using tissue paper to create a stained glass window, collage, play doh, etc.
  • Create a comic strip telling the Easter story.
  • Organise an Easter egg hunt for your family. You could leave happiness quotes with each clue!
  • If you have any spare eggs, ask an adult to hard boil one for you, then decorate it when it has cooled. If you don’t have any eggs, draw one in your home learning book.  Here are some ideas.
  • Research the Easter story and create a factfile. You can present this on the computer, powerpoint or in your home learning books.
  • If you have a spare sock, follow the instructions and make a sock bunny. If you have no rice, sand or cotton wool would work too.
  • Research Easter games and organise one for your family.
  • Hide some Easter themed ‘treasure’ (this could be an egg, a story, a craft you’ve made, anything!) and use your orienteering skills to write instructions from a starting point to your treasure.  Remember to use the 8 compass points (draw where N is on your map) and the number of steps, just like we did in our PE lessons.
  • Follow the online tutorial and draw an Easter bunny folding surprise.  If you don't have a piece of paper, carefully rip out a page from your home learning book and use that.
