Hello everyone! We hope you and your families are keeping well and you are being good for your adults at home.
As this should be when we break up for the Easter holidays, you’ll be pleased to know that we won’t be setting you any work to do!
But, in case you find you want something to do, here are a few websites and activities that might keep you busy.
www.phonicsplay.co.uk has some great phonics games you could play, and they will help to make sure you don’t forget any of the sounds we have learnt in school.
If, like me, you found the Joe Wicks PE lessons REALLY hard, I have found something that might be a little more gentle and enjoyable www.cosmickids.com has some super yoga exercises that link into stories. (Can also be found on YouTube if you search Cosmic Kids Yoga)
If your grown up will let you borrow/share their phone for a few minutes, you can make 3D animals appear in your house! If you type an animal (for example tiger) in google and scroll down to where it says, ‘show in 3D’ and click you should be able to make a tiger appear in your front room! You can do with other animals too, for example, penguin, lion, duck and more. Maybe your grown up could take a picture of you next to the animal and you could bring it into school to show us when we are back.
Staying with the theme of animals, some zoos around the world have set up virtual zoos so you can watch the animals as if you were visiting them at the zoo. Some good ones are Edinburgh Zoo, San Diego Zoo and Paignton Zoo. If you google virtual zoo there are lots to choose from.
Some other sites you may like are:
www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses - free audio books by David Walliams
www.thegruffalo.com has loads of games, activities, recipes and quizzes to keep you busy.
Steve Backshall has been doing Q&A sessions about different animals and these can be found on YouTube and Facebook.
Oti Mabuse has been doing some dance classes that can again be found by searching on YouTube or Facebook.
If you’ve had a go at some of these and have still got some spare time on your hands there is a Facebook group called ‘Family Lockdown Tips and Ideas’ which has some great ideas for craft activities and other ideas for keeping you busy. (Please make sure you ask your grown up to look at this for you)
We hope you manage to enjoy and celebrate Easter with your family and most of all we hope you and your family continue to stay safe and stay well.
Mrs Anthony and Ms Hillman
