English/Reading/Phonics – Continue to login to Reading eggs, I will set you some tasks, keep looking out for them and in the meanwhile you can follow your maps. Once you completed your map and your quiz, I will print your certificate and send it to you when I am in school.
Handwriting and letter formation, practise all lower case letters, form them properly, remember: writing, not drawing. For worksheets:

Reading books, sharing books and listening to audiobooks. For example: https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/ David Walliams is releasing a free audio story every day.
Maths – I had a look at Sumdog and I have managed to set you a challenge that is easier for you to do. I will continue to set these challenge and check how you have done.
Explore 3D shapes – discussing their names; cube, cuboid, sphere, pyramid, cone, cylinder, see which one you can find around the house in real life objects.
Easter egg hunt in the garden. Hide small eggs. How many did you find? Compare amounts with siblings, how many more/less? Share the amount between the people in the house, how many do you all get?
Science – Look at the different plants/bushes/trees in your garden. How many different ones can you find? Can you find out the name of the plant/flower/tree? How do they change through the seasons? If you have some seeds and compost at home, maybe you can grow your own, cress is good to grow. Have a look at some of these clips: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpxnyrd
Personal Skills and Independence – Focus on doing daily tasks independently: Getting dressed, brushing hair, brushing teeth, making toast, helping to lay the table, doing the washing up, etc.
If you get the chance to go for your daily exercise think about your road crossing skills, can you make the decision if it is safe to go?
At home you can practise your skills with money. Which coins do you recognise? Set up a shop with price tags, can you give the right amount of money? Can you give change when you are the shop keeper?
Computing – Use Facetime/Skype to contact you grandparents or other family members who don’t live in your house. Take photographs in your garden or of your school work. Practise sending emails to family members. But remember the E-safety rules.
Creativity – Decorating Easter eggs. Use coloured paper shapes to make a pattern on a paper egg. Or have a go at one of these Easter crafts: https://www.easypeasyandfun.com/easter-crafts-for-kids/
Maybe you can help making some Easter biscuits of cupcakes!
