Children's Home Learning Week 4

   Week 4   


I hope you all had a brilliant Easter Weekend and that you did not eat too much chocolate. Did you have an Easter egg hunt? The weather was lovely and sunny so I hope you managed to get outside for a while to relax in your gardens or go for a walk.

This week there are no new daily maths lessons but click on the rainbow for the holiday fun  daily activities. Remember to have a go at the new close up picture on the science page and there is a competition on the DT page to  design and win a climbing frame for our school. How proud would you be to say 'I designed our school climbing frame'?

I will continue to add ideas for activities for you to do at home so please keep looking through our subject pages for suggestions that might inspire you.

Keep sending me your photos it is great to see what you are doing and I like to know that you are all keeping safe and healthy.  

Take care and have fun

Mrs Barber

P.S. Well done to Emily for guessing two of our close up images,  a flower and a mushroom. Well done to Luzanne for guessing our other close up image was a Blue Tit.

Happy Birthday to Catherine, Emily and Ellie M.
