Phonics – Reading at home , sounding out words and attempting to blend. Use Reading Eggs to complete the lessons and find books to read.

Jolly Phonics song - Sing the song and do the actions for each sound. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Qpn2839Kro

RE – Look at how Easter is celebrated around the world and try some of the activities –

In Germany people hang decorated eggs on trees outside  - called Ostereierbaum.

In Bermuda they fly kites to symbolise the rising of Christ.

In Scotland they roll boiled eggs down a slope to see which egg rolls the furthest – this symbolises the stone rolling away from the tomb.

In the USA they roll eggs through grass using long handled spoons in a race .

Science – We have previously been learning about different materials and their properties. Can your child identify the material  and then find an object in the house or garden made from wood, metal, glass or plastic. Can they describe the properties of the material ? Is it shiny? Hard? Can you see through it ? Rough? Smooth ? If you would find it helpful I have made a key word/ symbol and sign sheet for you to use for this topic – please find it at the bottom of this page . 

English and Communication – Use Reading Eggs, log on and complete the lessons, tests, and any allocated activities.  Use the Reading Eggs library to read books and answer the quizzes. A previous topic has been funny stories – try finding some books on you tube and let me know which stories you like or find funny so we could share them .

In our class we love the site  www.barefootbooks.com    go to the ‘ for kids ‘ section and Animated Singalongs which are all based on books . Port side pirates is a firm favourite.

To practice our communication please don’t forget to keep up your signing, if you like pop songs then go to YouTube and check out Melody signs and Singing hands : there are lots of popular songs all signed for you to sing along and sign too.

Maths – we have previously covered fractions : whole ,half and quarters of both a shape and small numbers ( up to 20 max). Use the symbols and signs and then try cutting whole shapes ( bread/ toast/ playdough) into half and then quarters  - remind them that the portions need to be the same. Do the same with numbers and physically share out the objects  - one for you , one for me. Use maths in practical situations – ask your child to lay the table for dinner  - how many people are there in your household? how many  knives , forks will you need ? how many would you need if one more person came for dinner ? didn’t want dinner ?  If you would find it helpful I have made a key word/ symbol and sign sheet for you to use for this topic – please find it at the bottom of this page . 

PE – Use Go-Noodle, create a personal account and get moving! Try Banana Banana Meatball by Blazer Fresh ,  Milkshake  by Koo Koo Kangaroo or Baby Shark by Moose Tube .

Try PE with Joe Wicks  on YouTube

Try Frozen: A Cosmic Kids Yoga Adventure on YouTube

If you have a garden – get outside and  play with a ball – practice your co-ordination skills – sending and receiving  a ball with your hands or feet.

Go for a walk with an adult from your house.

Food Tech – Baking at home , or help prepare the dinner J Help wash up ,dry up / load the dishwasher.

Design Tech – decide on an object to make and then use any clean rubbish to junk model this.

Independence and Personal Skills – Help out around the house, get dressed completely by yourself, make the bed, sort the washing, dust or vacuum.  Practice brushing your teeth, hair or tying shoelaces.  Empty the bins and wash your hands. Practice doing up buttons or zips. Help laying the table for dinner , help load the dishwasher or wash up.

ICT – Remember that anything with a switch or that you can turn on or off is ICT so can you practice using the toaster with a grown up to supervise you . Continue to use Facetime/Skype to communicate with other family members.

Last but not least ……….try to enjoy and have fun with your learning. Try to find learning in the everyday activities that you all naturally enjoy doing , don’t get in a pickle or stressed about any of the above – they are intended as suggestions and not a prescription. All of your mental health and well being is far more important. Take care and stay safe.
